Ragemoor! A living castle, nurtured on pagan blood, harborer to deadly monsters! A fortress possessed of its own will and ability to change itself, with the power to add and destroy rooms and to grow without the help of any human hand. Its owner is mad with jealously, its servants arent human, and its secrets horrific!

    Bottom line, if you like horror books set in Britain, there's no reason you shouldn't pick this up. The combination of story and art makes for one of my favorite books this month, and I didn't expect to say that at all. Read Full Review

    I was really hoping for some background on Ragemoor, some letter from the editor talking about how the story came about, or an introduction to Jan Strnad, or... something to help ground what I just read. But maybe that is part of the point. Maybe by making this issue bleak, unsupported by explanation, unresolved except by death and madness, Strnad and Corben wanted to leave the reader with a lingering sense of uncomfort and dread.

    You'll be hard pressed to find a quality horror comic like "Ragemoor" on the shelves in the modern era. If you enjoy black and white movies from many decades ago or equally atmospheric comics, then this issue is for you. "Ragemoor" makes time feel still and eerie while reading it, creating a slow burn and with relentless, nasty action. This is the start of a tale that will have you checking to see if your windows are locked on cold, dark, and rainy nights. Read Full Review

    I know Ragemoor won't be to everyone's liking. However, if you miss the days of Vincent Price and Peter Cushing, then Ragemoor is a place you simply must visit. Read Full Review

    I purchased this book because I enjoy Corben's pencils. However, I was delighted to find that the story was equal to the task. I have no idea how this series is to unfold in the next three issues, but as a self-enclosed story, I definitely recommend picking this book up. Don't be scared off by the fact that this is a mini-series. You will enjoy this book regardless of what comes next. Read Full Review

    What makes this a real treat is Richard Corbens (Hellboy Vol.10 : The Crooked Man & Others) illustrations, presented in beautiful black & white. His style really sets the mood for the story with detailed facial expressions & the way he uses the ink for the light & shadows is downright eerie & frightening. I really got a creepy feeling reading this and I also got a Mike Mignola vibe like the way he writes about Hellboy with European haunted castles & weird monsters. Between titles like Severed, The Strain & now Ragemoor, horror comics are coming back in a big way and Im more than happy to tag along for the ride. From Dark Horse Comics. Read Full Review

    Right down the middle on this one. While I enjoyed the idea of the house being it's own character that can hear and see and kill if need be, the overall story was a bit boring and a bust for me overall. It is something we've seen before, and this version is a tad boring compared to the others. Read Full Review
