Being dead rocks!, 9 Mar. 2005
Tim Burton-esk, powerful and nonsensical but thoroughly sprinkled with subtle humour coupled with an Andy Riley twist of ingenious animal death methodology. A must for the mentally tormented.
Dirge's beloved Lenore is indeed graphically cute, her logic is erratic and her obvious naivete is soul consuming. The more you read, the less tact and concern Lenore has for the living. Her friends and foes are easily comparable to characters from childhood nightmares and if you have had the pleasure of watching Nightmare Before Christmas you'll be just as enraptured.
The revelation of short stories about Roman Dirge interjected throughout aid in answering questions about the origin of such a cute little dead girl. In short,if words like death, harrowing, cold-blooded and insentient get your juices flowing then i think you'll agree with me that it's bloody marvellous!
