Reviews - What do customers think about Silent Hill: Three Bloody Tales (Silent Hill 2)?
Did Anyone from IDW Actually Play the SH Games? Jan 7, 2006
Tome Wilson's review highlighted the substantial issues. The stories held none of the psychological depth and sinister subtlety fans expect from the SH series. All three tales contained no real connection to SH, though they obviously tried. Familiar denizens gave cameo appearances, however, one of the recurring monsters looked more like a creature from "The Suffering."
I originally bought Volume 2 because of its price compared to the three stand alone novels, in addition to my being a fan of the games. I'm glad I didn't waste any more money than necessary. If I knew then what a disappointment these stories were, I would've saved my cash.
I strongly recommend SH fans to pass on this book. It doesn't live up to the series, contains obscure/poorly done artwork, and offers nothing to justify its price.
SH Fans - At least it's cheaper than buying the individual books Dec 31, 2005
Three Bloody Tales collects the three aborted failures of SH comic writer, Scott Ciencin, into a $20 book printed on good paper.
There's no extras, no explanations of what he or artists Shaun Thomas and Nick Stakal were going for. It's just a straight reprint of the overpriced TPBs.
The best of the three stories was Grinning Man, and only because it offended me the least. I love Silent Hill, and the psychological/magical theories that make it such an interesting story locale, but these three stories are simply insulting.
Poorly written, poorly drawn and overpriced.
Hopefully, IDW will put a bullet in this sick dog before it infects someone else.
