Re: Let's Talk About Horror Fiction

I love it, especially the bit about Chick and Wilbur. (It would have been funny if he had said Chick Young went on to create Blondie ).

The more I read about it, the more I want to own it. It just shows you what is possible with solid concepts when you have a writer who is creative, and is both respectful and enthusiastic about the source material. Not that the Dark Horse books were bad-- they just weren't as advertised.

The bit about not eating anything but human flesh is interesting-- it's tickling a memory about something Larry might have said in one of the sequels, but I'll have to rewatch them to see. But there might be some kind of a precedent for that....
