This is the eagerly awaited comic anthology edited by Joe R. Lansdale & Rick Klaw. Massive in size & breadth of vision, WEIRD BUSINESS is a landmark volume in the comics industry. The first project of its size & scope, WEIRD BUSINESS heralds a coming new era in how we conceive, produce, read, & even think about comics. Stand out stories include: THAT HELL-BOUND TRAIN by Robert Bloch, GORILLA GUNSLINGER by Norman Partridge, JESTING WITH CHAOS by Michael Moorcock, & THE REAL THING by Nancy Collins. WEIRD BUSINESS editor, Joe R. Lansdale has this to say: "Not only does WEIRD BUSINESS contain great adaptations of classic tales by Edgar Allen Poe, Ambrose Bierce & the late, great Robert Bloch, it contains mostly original material that will, to put it mildly, blow the doors off your Chevy. And that ain't even countin' the marvelous cover by Dave Dorman. One look at that baby, &, if you have any kind of soul, you'll be all over this book like white on rice. From pure fantasy to dark horror, to humorous whimsy, to noir, to action/adventure & science fiction, this book is as hot as the Devil's cigar." Order from: MOJO Press, P.O.

Not everything in here is gold, but a couple of the stories (and artists!) are worth the book price alone. There are at least two amazing pen-and-ink artists featured here. Read full review
