Three stand-alone tales of the bizarre: A politician determined to cut aid to the poor finds himself in a Dust Bowl town in the Great Depression. Reality begins to slip away for a crusader against social network “over-sharing.” And a Renaissance player who doesn’t fit in with his present-day peers gets an ugly taste of the real thing.

    This is the nature of horror - the realization/understanding of the reality of a situation - when the veil drops away and you realize that what you thought could never happen not only does happen, but it's happening to you. Read Full Review

    Fangoria - Chris Alexander Jul 7, 2014

    Out of the three tales, only "Not Faire" drops the TZ ball, as it fails to engage and spirals down into incoherence. Otherwise, THE TWILIGHT ZONE annual is lots of fun and Rahner's intros and outros are spot-on. It generally follows the three act morality play formula that made the original show so powerful, though it skimps on the melancholy that gave Serling's work such a soul. One might pine for the glorious silvery black-and-white sheen of the series, but seeing as these are contemporary tales, the full-color is appropriate and the art, solid. All in all, a welcome modernization of a beloved program. Read Full Review

    The art is better than the stories, so you've been forewarned. This is a pricey pick up at $7.99. You'd be much better off reading the monthly series than this book. Read Full Review

    This is a decent outing. I don't know if it's required reading, but if you're looking for the stereotypical "twist ending" Twilight Zone, then you may be entertained. For me it was more of a window into the world after JMS leaves the series. I'm sure that Dynamite will continue it because they'll already have a built-in readership, but that doesn't necessarily mean that it'll be successful. If I were them, I would start fielding people now so that we're not getting a series that's only focus is the shock value of its endings. Read Full Review
