The Haunt of Horace! #1, Horror Comics Group. Full size comic, black and white interiors. 28 pages, $2.95. Well this is one bizarre comic book. We get to see the origin of Horace and his very twisted, possessed, vampire unicorn! This is like a children's story gone all wrong! It gets close here and there to going over the edge completely....but always seems to steer back on track. The art has a feel all its own. With some panels not as up to par as most of the book. But it all seems to work somehow. Is this for little goth kids? HA! They already have a second issue and I'll have to check that out for review as for some reason I'd like to see where this keeps going. If it is this weird in the first issue, I can't imagine what is going to happen next! There is an ad for some very creepy comic from them called Invasion of the Doppelgangers! Are these guys on the cutting edge taking us where EC Comics would have gone if they were still around? We have to keep watching these guys. The first story is called, "My Big Dumb Hell", by Ken Henson. Then there is a one page oddity called Journey Into ADHD" by Mark O'Neill. Twisted.
www.thehauntofhorace.com is how to reach them. If you dare. (Three stars.) And I bet I see much more coming from these guys....and like a train wreck, I can't look away!
