Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "The last of a set of horror anthologies (after The Dark Horse Book of Hauntings,0 2003; Witchcraft,0 2004; and The Dead,0 2005) whimpers more than it bangs. Except for another of Evan Durkin and Jill Thompson's marvelously painted (by Thompson) adventures of a clutch of pooches dogged by the supernatural (this time, a teenage werewolf), the stories aren't as good as they look, though with the likes of Mike Mignola ( Hellboy0 ) and Juan Ferreyra ( Rex Mundi0 ) contributing, they do look marvelous. As before, Gary Gianni's pen-and-ink illustrations for the volume's cover and customary pulp horror-story reprint take top artistic honors. --Ray Olson Copyright 2006 Booklist"
