    Artwork: 4.5 out of 5
    Fantastic from page 1 to page 32. This is a fun looking issue that I wouldn’t mind if it were done for adult readers, but since it is for kids I can say it rocks! Every artist brings a unique look that is inviting and yet scary enough for the genre. I knew I was in for a treat when I saw the pumpkin grow eyes in the first story. I also want to add that black and white was the right way to go here.

    Story: 4.0 out of 5
    There were 6 short stories in this issue and every single one of them I enjoyed. Sometimes you can really get things played down to the target audience but I can happily say that I enjoyed this and I think the age range should go from 6 – 200. That is of course if you live to be 200. In all seriousness each story is a fun take on the horror genre and I welcome more from the crew.

    Dying Breath: 4.0 out of 5
    Fun, fun and fun can all be had in this issue. I would buy it for my kids and their kids and then my great grand kids, except I don’t have children yet, so I get to keep it all to myself! The artwork is playful and just sets a great visual tone, that is layered with sweet stories of horror goodness. I easily recommend this book for someone looking to have a good time with a comic.
