Curl up by the fire and enter the sinister, supernatural world of Montague Rhodes James (1862-1936), the master of the English ghost story. Chillingly atmospheric, quietly terrifying, M. R. James's stories explore the darkness just beyond the flicker of the candle, behind the creaking door. Ghost Stories of an Antiquary, Vol. 1 comprises graphic adaptations of four of James's most compelling and unsettling stories - "Canon Alberic's Scrapbook," "Lost Hearts," "The Mezzotint," and "The Ash Tree" - plunging readers into a world of pervasive, creeping disquiet. This is a graphic novel to be read on a winter's night, a book to curl up with-but not a book for the fainthearted.

    Overall, while the artwork compliments the stories to differing degrees throughout the collection, the unquestioned brilliance of the author guarantees that at least one of the stories here will creep into your subconscious and burrow in, waiting to manifest itself at a later date. And while the prospect of adapting such a descriptive prose style into a sequential art format may be fairly daunting to some, Moore, Reppion and their assembled artistic talent have proved to be more than equal to the task here. Highly recommended. Read Full Review
