    Weekly Comic Book Review - Jun 5, 2008

    I enjoyed this issue a good deal. Lately I've been into the old black and white magazines, like Creepy and Eerie that weren't quite my cup of tea when I was younger. This comic very much has the feel of those books, and I do believe Corben did work for those titles back in the 70's. While I regret missing the Haunt of Horror series dedicated to Poe I will be looking to pick it up in trade. And I am definitely looking forward to the next issue of this three part miniseries.

    Comics Bulletin - Matthew J. Brady Jun 3, 2008

    In addition to the three comics stories, the issue contains the full texts upon which they are based, making for a pretty good value. Like all of Marvel's MAX line, this book cost $3.99, but it's 32 pages with no ads, and it features sumptuously creepy art by a master of the medium. If you're a fan of Lovecraft, Corben, or horror comics, I definitely recommend that you check it out. Read Full Review

    IGN - Eric Sunde Jun 4, 2008

    Although Corben has an unmistakably unique style, even in black and white, it still changes up chapter to chapter. "Dagon" features extensive use of pencil shading, which gave a very organic feel to the book. The other two chapters use more of a uniform shading approach, and is also nice, while providing a different look at the same time. Fans of Corben's work are going to enjoy this issue, and fans of Lovecraft's work will almost certainly enjoy seeing his stories brought to life. I particularly enjoyed seeing both adaptations from "Fungi of Yuggoth", and looking ahead, the final issues of the series each feature two more chapters from that poem, so it would appear there are going to be more opportunities for Corben to really stretch his creative wings.
