I got a few books and graphic novels recently.
Uzumaki vol.1 - Junji Ito
Baltimore: The Plague Ships - Mike Mignola and Christopher Golden
House - Josh Simmons
Haunted - Chuck Palahniuk
In A Glass Darkly - Sheridan Le Fanu
I read all three graphic novels in the interim between finishing Jekyll and Hyde and starting my next book (probably Haunted).
Uzumaki is a very interesting read. It's a horror manga about a village that is seemingly possessed (for lack of a better word) by spirals. Many people lose their minds and disturbing things happen. I'm really digging it. I'll have to get the rest and check more of his work. It's read right to left though, but I'm used to it.
Baltimore is also a great read. It's sort of a horror/steampunk hybrid that takes place in the early 1900. There's been continuous wars and plague spread by a vengeful vampire which is claiming the lives of those who don't die in battle. That's all well and good, but the problem is the dead are rising. Great art and story so far, again it's only volume 1 so I'll have to check out more.
Finally there's House. Now I can't say I read this, as there are no words, but I did experience it, and it was a good experience. It's the story of a guy and two girls who go to explore an abandoned mansion, become separate and experience horrific situations. It's a really well made, but simple story that is told solely with the art. The art is all black and white and relatively basic, but it's dark and creepy nonetheless. A cool little experiment, worth the, uh, read?
