the nightmare factory based on stories by thomas ligotti; by joe harris, stuart moore, heidi macdonald.

i had a pretty gothy friday, when you factor in that i read this & then went to go see repo! the genetic opera. this was quick & cute. the translation from writing to panel left a lot out i thin? which maybe worked in the comic's favor, since it lent everything a dreamlike quality. the stories are pretty cerebral in their horror, which i liked-- mannikins! asylums! clowns! so no new ground broken, but the approach was innovative. i plowed through it pretty quickly, but the art is nice-- i miss alias & who doesn't? i'd read the second one, that is for sure.
