Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "This volume in the Graphic Classics series includes an adaptation of The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari, and lesser-known stories by Mark Twain, H. P. Lovecraft, and Arthur Conan Doyle, with humorous interludes hosted by Nerwin the Docent. Depending on the mood of the story, the full-color art ranges from humorous to spooky. Teens looking for something different in their Halloween reading will find murderous mummies, displaced dead, headless horsemen, and a very bizarre kind of the undead. The book includes brief biographies of the writers and artists.--Kan, Kat Copyright 2010 Booklist"
