Reviews - What do customers think about Aleister Arcane?

Great book for fans of "fun" horror.  Mar 9, 2006
This is the first of a three issue series written by Steve Niles and illustrated by Breehn Burns. Anyone who wasted the Saturday afternoons of their youth watching the Creature Double Features that the old UHF stations used to show (our local host in Philly was called Dr. Shock), will love this series. The story centers on Aleistar Arcane, the host of a late night horror movie host. The kids of his hometown love him but the adults feel he is a bad influence. They run him off the air, but not without consequences...

By "fun" horror, I don't necessarily mean the post modern, self referential tone pervasive to the genre. Aleister Arcane takes itself seriously, but it's not hardcore. Rather, it's on the level of a good Halloween story, and is not inappropriate for younger kids (unlike some of Niles' other work). Burns' illustrations are beautiful and especially effective when depicting the late night, fog enshrouded streets of this small town teeming with the walking dead. The story is good, while the writing itself is serviceable - the pictures really do tell the story here. I undestand there is a movie in the works and I hope they get the tone right. Hopefully Niles will maintain control over the film's production
