    Arguably the best addition in this collection is Haeser and Hassons Tears of a Clown, which follows The Living Corpses first meeting with a suicidal Mumbles the Clown. Created by Rob Dimension, but written and illustrated by Haeser and Hasson, this piece makes for a fantastically gritty end to the book. How these artists can pull off two completely different styles of art from their opening story to their last is remarkable. As if drawn and rendered on sandpaper, the rough and harsh tone of the art translates exceptionally well with the narrative; and Smith delivers his best work utilizing a colour palette that perfectly fits the mood of the story.

    All three stories look great with completely different styles at work. This one-shot has also piqued my interest as far as The Living Corpse is concerned. If given an ongoing series I'm sure I'd pick it up after reading this. A zombie superhero who fights all things horror? Sign me up. It also seems to have a bit of a sense of humor, which makes this title further unique. That said, these three stories are either throwaway or seem to be written more for the hardcore fan than anything. It was hard to relate to and enjoy the stories because of this. On top of that the title says it's a “haunted one-shot” and yet there's nothing scary about it! Read Full Review
