    1. This is definitely better than the Witchcraft one and I appreciate that there is only one prose story in here [seriously, stop putting prose stories in comic anthologies] but still most of the stories are just okay and nothing really blew me away.

    2. Some of the art is decent, but overall this entire collection is boring and uncreative; entirely forgettable. The best entry is from Pat McEown, which is surprisingly solid with excellent style and a decent story told through a surprisingly gripping use of almost no details - the brief length is a great way to experiment with minimal characterization, but McEown manages to infuse the entire piece with heart and drive. Neat!

    3. A creepy selection box of short extracts from quality graphic novels based around the theme of the walking, hungry dead - plus a dark short story by classic adventure writer Robert E Howard. A good introduction to artists and writers you may not have come across before with grotesque-style woodcut illustrations on the fly pages.

    4. Of the collection, Eric Powell's "The Wallace Expedition", Pat McEown's "Queen of Darkness" and Jamie S. Rich and Guy Davis' "Kago No Tori" are the stand-out tales. Top billing aside, Mike Mignola's entry falls short, trying all too hard for clever over substance or entertainment.Like so many short story collections (or new music albums), the Book of the Dead's short visual tales provide patchy results - a few gems amidst the dross. Alas, three out of the many isn't enough to rescue it - and unl [...]

    5. I really enjoyed this collection of stories revolving around death and the dead- some are written out in text, others full graphic novel (comics style) artwork some are funny, poking fun at death some hit you where it counts and make the tears come to your eyes"The Ditch" was my personal favourite It touched me on a level few short stories/graphics can about the dead. The forgotton dead, especially I was pleased to see the depth and yet the tenderness in some of the tales- for all the fact that [...]

    6. A collection of ghoulish tales, each one presenting a different perspective (such as that of a dead dog in a ditch, or a group of expeditioners in the arctic) or interesting twist, or a just plain creepy premise. The art styles change from story to story, becoming the hook that dragged me in in the first place. My favorite was Kago No Tori - or Caged Bird - which features illustrations that mirror traditional Japanese woodblock prints in a modern style.

    7. This book is really a collection of small stories from Dark Horse, focusing around death, the dead and the dying. They're fun stories, bite sized, and a bit haphazard, but worth a go through on a night when you need a bit of the macabre.The art is consistently good from piece to piece, and showcases Mike Mignolia's Hellboy for one of the chapters.

    8. Each volume has been a little better than the one before. This one was as creepy as Witches but several of the stories had heart as well. Loved Mignola's Hamlet. Once Kelley Jones appears, it's surprising he wasn't included sooner. Sort of relieved there was no interview this time.

    9. If you're a dog-lover who's a bit sensitive, you may want to pass on this one. I'm a cat person, myself, so that's not my only issue here. I guess this volume was just too much of a downer for me, and not even that entertaining.

    10. I just loved this collection of creepy tales, very nicely illustrated, and including a short story by one of my fave authors, Robert E Howard. This book reminded me a lot of the seventies and eighties 'horror' comics, such as Creepy, Eerie, tales of the Uncanny etc. which I loved as a kid.

    11. El vívido libro de los muertos en castellano.Incluye una entrevista al capo de Scott Allie.

    12. I enjoyed the story by Howard, but I just find that many of the stories lack a bit of substance or intrigue. Not to say that the book is bad, but I must say I did not find it all that entertaining.

    13. Do I remember a single graphic short story from this collection? I don’t think I do. Always a fabulous sign, that.
