About meI am not rich, noble, or innocent, but I'm here.

About my libraryMost of it is in boxes in storage. If I had all of those books out on shelves in my condo, people would think I'm an anti-social loser who spends too much time with books.

the nightmare network?
What about the graphic novel, "Cairo"? Have you read it and if so, could you give me a quick review as to its read-worthiness?
Hi, I have read "The Rabbi's Cat." I am afraid I will forever be searching for a book that can equal "Epileptic." I went through all your reviews and found not a one that had 5 stars 'cept "Epileptic."
Hi, I'm looking for a comic book as excellent as David B's Epileptic in art and storytelling. Can you recommend something?
Hi, I've been reading your reviews and they are an excellent resource for me. I'm fairly new to graphic novels and such, but have acquired a handful of powerful ones, like [Epleptic], which we both agree is a masterpiece. Have you ever "read" Frans Masereel's wordless novels? They are done in woodcuts, and I think one of the original wordles creations. These are hard to find now.
Is the group "Comics as Art" open only to the members listed? It's strange that one is not allowed to join and there isn't much activity.
Excellent horror library. Your profile (self-description and the bit about why you keep books in boxes) cracked me up! More power to ya. -- Mike Arnzen
Yeah, I love Jason. I have read Jim Woodring before, the Frank Book along with a few issues of JIM. I like the Frank character alot. I like jason's wordless comics more so than his stuff with words. What about you?
Yep, I am a proud owner. I am quite desperate to get a copy of TAROVF but I have not plucked up the courage to pay over £100 for a paperback.

You have some very interesting books. I would like to get into more horror as Lovecraft and Ligotti are the main people I have read.

I love Ligotti's CD for Crampton, I am suprised that he has not recorded more.
