A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

If you're tired of the same ole business. If you want something unique. If you think comic book swimsuit issues are the dumbest thing since Jesse Helms, then here it is, a hot bundle of short stories, a la graphic novel style.

Not only does Weird Business contain tales by Edgar Allan Poe, Ambrose Bierce, and the late, great Robert Bloch, it contains mostly original material that will, to put it mildly, blow the doors off your Chevy. From pure fantasy to dark horror, to humorous whimsy, to noir, to action/adventure and science fiction, this baby is as hot as the devil's cigar.

With 23 stories, 56 creators, and 420 pages Weird Business is the largest original comic ever produced in the English language.

Weird Business was nominated for the 1996 Eisner Award for best anthology and hailed by the Rocky Mountain News as "Possibly the greatest comic ever."

Review:

Dedicated to, and very much in the humor-loving spirit of, the late Robert Bloch, this original anthology of mostly black-and-white horror comics is a beautiful book to have and to hold, and is great fun to read. Don't expect literary subtlety from this one--these are comics, after all--and your horror thirst will be slaked by stories in which blood flows, corpses move, monsters romp, skull-faced demons walk the night, and only rarely does the good guy win. The stories are almost all by established horror prose writers, ranging from contemporary pros like Norman Partridge and F. Paul Wilson, to adaptations of classics like Edgar A. Poe's "Masque of the Red Death" and Ambrose Bierce's "Oil of Dog." The artwork is by 20-some different artists, and exhibits a range of graphic styles, including some on the cutting edge of today's comics.
