    “Thirteen new tales of terror peer into the lives of those affected by Lucifer’s diabolical scheme to kick-start the Armageddon! Stories feature characters as diverse as a conniving rock star wannabe, an abused teenager, a pair of star-crossed Mafioso lovers and the world’s last ultra-hero, the last of whom must choose between staying with the love of his life while the world goes to Hell (literally) and fighting the Great Cthulhu in a desperate (and most likely futile) attempt to save the world.”

    Ugh, yes please! This is one great looking collection. Not a single story seemed to be any less visually appealing than the next. Some of the stories I liked the looks of best were Strays, No One Knows and Momma’s Boy. I think one thing to point out is that all of the artists did a great job of getting the right feel for their story. Everything just seemed to really fit perfectly. This is seriously a great looking collection.

    Story: 4.0 out of 5
    Dirk Manning comes at this again with 13 more tales of terror. Personally I think he is a poker player and not just going for the evil number 13. In all seriousness Dirk did a great job on all of these shorts. Each one has its set number of pages and is nicely contained within them. Strong starts followed by great finishes and of course plenty of humor and horror goodness. Personally Momma’s Boy was my top dog, but I also enjoyed Strays and For Those About to Rock.

    Dying Breath: 4.0 out of 5
    I love this series, and while I can read it online, I like it better in the trades. It just makes me sad to know I am already halfway through the series, but on the upside I still have two more books coming. It’s a win/win people! Great stuff here with solid artwork and stories that will grab you, possibly literally.

    If you would like to buy or know more about Nightmare World Vol. 2 you can find it at Amazon.com.
