To acquire a copy of this title, see the Mail Order page


As with the first issue, another comic which is outside the main corpus of the Horror Mythos. This time Kris Guidio indulges his love of all things Oriental with calligraphic assistance from Susan Leung. A skilful blend of Hokusai elegance, eroticism and violence, this issue also includes a free Lord Horror poster and a supplement featuring more fine Guidio illustrations based on the Lord Horror novel.

The back cover features a photograph showing Mr Guidio standing outside Savoy's Peter Street shop with two members of the Greater Manchester police force. Pictures were being taken of Kris that afternoon to promote Sinister Legends when the two cops happened to be passing in the street. They stood quite happily next to Kris while Mike Butterworth fired off a couple of snaps, unaware of their proximity to two of their Chief Constable's arch-heretics.


"Gore galore, and painstaking artwork."
