review ´ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF Õ Josh Simmons

Isarmingly cute yet terrifying demons of Demonwood to the depraved caped crusading antihero in Mark of the Bat Simmons is a master of creating terrifying beasties that inspire and inflict nightmarish horrors usually taken to unforgettable extremesThe individual stories in The Furry Trap stand on their own as mini masterpieces of skin crawling terror but collectively complement each other in a way that only heightens the anxiety and dread pouring from page to page Just remember You've been warne. OkayI found this at the Library and skimmed the first few pages I was almost immediately offended to the point where I put it back on the shelf and prayed that no little kid would ever pick this upThen I went back minutes later to read the whole thing cover to cover There was no way I was going to bring this into my house but I felt compelled to read it Fortunately most of the stories after the first were ever so slightlyless horrifyingI can handle uite a lot of dark morose morbid content before it affects me to the point where I dislike it Furry Trap broke that threshold though in fact I think this may be the first time everThis would have been a solid 1 star rating except for the last story Demonwood was so incredibly terrifying It had a Less is approach whereas the previous stories had a philosophy of The most possible is The difference between Demonwood and the others is this The earlier stories left me in shock and horror only as long as the page was open to them Demonwood is still haunting me nowI would almost go so far to say almost that this would be worth the buy JUST for Demonwood

    This graphic novel has won several awards and I’d heard it was controversial so I decided to give it a read I can’t understand what people see in it It’s a horror comic in a way in a sort of splatterish tradition I’ve looked up some interviews with the author and he says that one of his points is that horror which leaves the victim their dignity isn’t horror This means his characters need to be demeaned for what he’s trying to p
