I had no idea what this was about. I love vampire stories, and the cover caught my eye. I picked it up and as soon as I flipped it open, the artwork by Elman Brown blew me away.
I’ve since learned that this four issue mini-series was actually an adaption of Richard Matheson’s 1954 novel of the same name. (Some say it’s more of a word for word illustrated version of the novel.) Regardless, I was transfixed by it. The sense of loneliness was palatable. It was…IS the creepiest comic I’ve ever read. It’s psychological horror at it’s finest.
