    All in all, Tales of the Unexpected is off to a rather lackluster start. While the art is colorful and moody, the story is all but dead (no pun intended). If you are an avid Spectre or Crispus Allen fan, Id say get it, but if not, well, keep the three dollars. The backup provides a nice change of pace and a good little adventure, but Im not sure I want to spend all that money just for the backup. Read Full Review

    Overall, we have a mixed bag here. If you love blood and gore, this is your book. If youre a fan of the Spectre, I suggest ignoring this title. This is not the Spectre. This is all about shock value. Now if DC dumped the lead story, instead making the Dr. 13 story the lead and expanded on it, then this title would definitely be worth recommending. Otherwise, I can think of better things to spend my $3.99 on. Read Full Review

    There are also swarms of roaches and attacks by angry spectral rats (though why theyre angry at their one protector isnt so clear), and even the Spectres vengeance is rendered so confusingly you dont even get that righteous thrill youre supposed to when the guilty are punished. Because, apparently, theres still a rape going on in another apartment that the Spectre doesnt care about. Read Full Review
