  1. Really glad to hear you enjoyed this one. I sent it and one of the others to a friend as a Christmas gift. I’m hoping he enjoys them at least as much as you have. This also reminds me I want to try Heart-Shaped Box one of these days, and perhaps NOS4A2.

      1. No, I had it shipped directly to him, so I didn’t get a chance to see them. I was of the same mind, I only picked Hill’s work. Granted, I wasn’t a big fan of Horns, either the book or the movie, but I did enjoy Locke & Key and I think he enjoyed that one also. I think Plunge was the other one I sent.

  2. “Verbose” is a word that always springs to mind when I think of Hill and, especially, his father 😉. I enjoyed reading Hill’s “20th Century Ghosts”, “Heart-Shaped Box”, but I DNF’d “NOS4A2”. I’m not a fan of over-writing in comic books, but you’ve made this sound very tempting. I enjoyed Hill’s comic series “Plunge” but I haven’t read this title. Nice review, Lashaan.

      1. Completely forgot about Locke & Key. I’ve only read the first volume of that one. It didn’t blow me away. With NOS4A2, I got halfway through it and lost interest. I was going to pick it up again but never did.

  3. I know I’ve talked about this before, but Hill lost any chance of connecting with me because of the movie Horns. I didn’t like Radcliffe in it, I didn’t like the story line and I didn’t like just about everything to do with it, hahahaa. So Hill’s name is now inextricably linked to that level of dislike. I’m not even sure it is overcome-able….

  4. Cool review, as always – seems that you had a bit of fun with this one, Lashaan!
    I’m not a great fan of horrors, especially verbose horrors 😜 but I’m glad you enjoyed it so much! Have fun with the rest of the series! 😉
