    And last, but certainly not least, there's Mariah Huehner and Tula Lotay's "Rise," a masterfully executed tale of ghostly possession and the very human lust for vengeance. Huehner writes a main character that's knowable from the first page, but Lotay's art is the real star. Her delicate lines and layers of ethereal colors provide a fitting end to a collection of stories designed to stick with you the way good horror should. Read Full Review

    This is a really solid anthology series for the publisher, even if the most exciting stuff happened towards the beginning of the book. Read Full Review

    "The Witching Hour" is one of the strongest of Vertigo's themed anthologies so far, with fantastic art and admirable variety and daring in the interpretation of the theme. Read Full Review

    The price of this book is hefty at $7.99, but I feel it's worth it. It's exciting to discover talent that you're not familiar with, and in each of the three stories I highlighted above, that was the case. I'm now looking forward to seeing what these creators do next, and hope to follow them to their next projects, wherever that may be. Not every story was great, but every story was at least solid. There's something here for most tastes and I encourage you to give it a try. Read Full Review

    The remaining four stories all feel a bit forced and rushed, as if they could use a couple more pages, or even a mini series to say what they need to say. Read Full Review

    This is a lot of fun, and while $7.99 is a lot, nearly 70 pages of content makes the price tag worth it. Read Full Review

    There you have it: nine, eight page stories for eight bucks. Some are great ones while most are average. The comic is a good read that will leave you satisfied but it probably isn't the kind of comic book you will read over and over again. Check it out if you have a light list some week.
