Review

In short, the collection is a great start for this creative team. It's unsettling and chilling at every page, and the ending revelations are all suitably disturbing, living up to the standard that its bleak aesthetic creates from the moment the cover is opened. It's hard for me to pick a favorite story; I honestly liked them all, and I feel that each one offer something that the others don't, making the collection as a whole cover all the bases of what, in realistic settings, is scary as hell. It's dark enough that horror fans will enjoy it (I certainly did), yet it still manages to be accessible to readers who prefer drama and suspense to all-out guts and blood. It's a happy medium, I think, and this book has the potential to gather quite a wide audience. I hope it does, as I'd like to read more like it by this team in the future. Great, sophisticated, dark, frightening, and fun stuff. --http://toshareads.blogspot.com/2011/04/comics-review-twisted-dark-vol-1-by.html<br ><br >What Gibson has created here is a marvel.

After reading and really enjoying Volume 2, I'm was really pleased to get the opportunity to review Volume 1. I remember Neil saying that Volume 2 was the weakest of the series, and I enjoyed it so much, I didn't see how it could be possible that Volume 1 could be better. But it was.

I don't want to just rehash everything I enjoy about this series - if you want that, check out my review of Volume 2. Needless to say everything that's good about Volume 2 is in Volume 1. But what makes Volume 1 stronger is a couple of absolutely standout stories that deal with some touchy and serious themes.

The first story is the two part one about Rajeev - a migrant worker who goes to great lengths to gain power. Gibson takes the story to a brave place by having Rajeev convert to Islam. It's a potentially touchy issue, with such a lot of negative press about the Muslim faith at the moment. It would be easy to come across as crude or racist, but what the story actually does is brilliantly demonstrate how people can use the 'brand' of religion to further their own twisted desires. It reminds that the terrorists are not representative, that they are perverting what should be an enlightening and uplifting thing to serve their own needs. And the horror the story plays with is how twisted and evil the sort of person that can do this is, and how they can be such an influence on others.

My second favourite story is the one featuring a mother with Munchausen's syndrome. Again, the standout thing about this was it really managed to get inside her head and take what could have been another touchy subject and turn it into a sensitive, but still horrific exploration of a terrible illness.

I came across this comic last year whilst exploring my new Kindle. I saw Twisted Dark pop up whilst looking through various graphic novels and thought, for under a pound, I couldn't go wrong.

After reading the first story in this collection, it became pretty clear that I had got more than just a bargain. After reading the rest of the book, I felt GUILTY for having paid so little! So much so, I'm going to buy the paperback! It's that good!

Each story is unique and - you guessed it - dark and twisted. The illustrations are awesome, with a mixture of very talented artists at hand, giving each story its own look and feel, making them all stand out in their own way and the dialogue leaves a real mark on your mind. Combined, you get a whole series of very memorable, and at times, haunting experience.

One of the reasons why I love these stories so much isn't just because they are well written or creepy; it's because none of them are supernatural. All the stuff you read here could, and most likely has happened in the world we live in. Now, in itself, that may not sound like a big deal, but you'd only say that if you hadn't read the book...

On that note, I heavily encourage you to give this awesome series a read. As I said, it's worth the extra money for the paperback, but if you're a little hard up on cash or just tight, then your gonna get an absolute steal from the kindle store!

There's a new talent on the comic book scene, and this guy is one to watch.

Volume 2 is even better, but that's not really for here...

From a general background of one who does not delve deeply into the dark and disturbed in both film and literature, Twisted dark presents itself as a collection of short, thought provoking and profoundly engaging throughout all 6 of the volumes out so far.

Whilst my opinion of these books may be tainted, due to meeting Neil Gibson himself at the London Film and Comic Con (wherein I talked to him and somehow managed to negotiate both a £20 discount on the full set of 6, but got themy autographed too!), my thoughts are as follows.

Twisted Dark is Great.

From the individual artists styles to the range of different motives, characters and personalities (not to mention the interlinking character arcs and themes between each chapter), Twisted dark is a series of connected stories, giving us a better idea on each characters past, present and future, along with giving us an idea on when chapters are set, in relation to others.

An example of this, would be the a story in the first book following a successful inventor of sorts, who has created a line of window based computer screens, allowing for all manner of different uses. Now, this man is shown to be somewhat reserved in nature, having not discussed a previous trauma in his life relating to his facial scar, and his parents. Whilst I can go on about this further, in a later book, a whole story is presented about what initially appears to be a different character, who then turns out to be his mother, with him as a device for this story. This furthermore brings on a deeper understanding about the character, whilst giving the reader almost an "eureka!"-like effect as they spot these links.
