    'Shadowplay' is a lesson in how to do a good old fashioned horror short properly. It has everything you need. A clever script, a creepy protagonist, fantastic artwork and a splendidly gruesome ending. It has that moment as the story concludes that reminded me the time when I first began reading horror comics. That moment when you 'get it,' and you sit back on your chair with a big smile of recognition and satisfaction on your face. Perfect, that's what a good horror comic should be doing.If you were thinking about getting this issue of Eerie, then I'd recommend you check it out for that one story alone. The other two tales are relatively weak, but ShadowPlay by Al Ewing and Kelley Jones is well worth the price of admission this month. Read Full Review

    With a fine mix of art and solid, tightly written stories I heartily enjoyed Eerie. A throwback black and white horror comic is perhaps a tough sell (what a terribly sad world) but for an old monster movie fan like me it was a lot of fun. Read Full Review

    Some great anthology from Dark Horse's Eerie, yet again. Still worth the increased price of $4, it has all the pages and material to make a chilling read. No ongoing BS, just classic short stories in the classic style. Plus a stunning reprint from years gone by!
