Dying Breath: 4.0 out of 5
The 2010 ComicMonsters.com award winning anthology is back with 11 stories to turn your stomach inside out! I really do love the Bloke line of books and I think that these Annual collections are the top of the line when it comes to what they do. I have known Jason Crawley since I got into the horror comic game and watching his writing grow over time just puts a smile on my face. This collection is very well done, and I was not let down at all. Some of the best writing I thought were on the stories, Night Creatures and Sticks & Stones. The artwork holds up for the most part, but I did find a story or two to not be up to the same level as some of the others. Overall though you get names like Hoffman, Paulos, Percival and Ignatius. How can one go wrong looking at the work of these guys? I will say this, Despotovich was like finding the gold at the end of the rainbow. His style on the Sticks & Stones was so perfect, that it quickly became my favorite of the bunch. No matter how I break it down this 2011 Annual has it all. 11 great short horror stories and then a picture gallery at the end. For only $15 you seriously can not go wrong, matter of fact I think you’re stealing from Virus Comix by paying that price. Another great year, I can not wait for 2012!
