Halloween is just days away and the Bloke’s Terrible Tomb of Terror is just the comic to get you in the morbid mood for some spookiness! As a child of the ‘70’s that grew up reading EC Comics re-prints and everything Warren Publishing put out (Creepy, Eerie, Vampirella, etc.) I really dig horror comics, as a matter of fact I’d say they are my favorite genre of comics and the Bloke’s Terrible Tomb of Terror is a much welcome return to those comics of yesteryear that haunted mine and many other childhoods. Now Jason “The Bloke" Crawley continues the tradition with this ongoing anthology of horror! Jason and fellow horror henchman Mike Hoffman undertake the chores of scribe for the series while a talented group of artists chained deep within the tomb spill the ink from their quills onto the pages of dread.
In this, issue #10 of the Bloke’s Terrible Tomb of Terror, five fright filled tales are told. First up is Parasites, a spaced out story of survival on an alien planet. Then The Bloke takes us along on the dirty job of getting rid of vermin in Exterminate. Later we travel to the days of swords and sandals as a young boy sets out to rescue a princess in One Boys Quest. Then in Beneath the Surface we take a dip into strange waters in search of treasures. And we end our journey through this tome with the futuristic Copycat, a tale of what the future promises…and what it doesn’t.
The writing in the Bloke’s Terrible Tomb of Terror #10 is high quality suspense with ghastly twisted endings. The settings are all well established and the characters are developed fully to invest the reader’s interest in their plight and give the reader insight into their motivations. The artwork complements each story with exquisite imagery executed with impressive skill and talent. Each artist brings their own style and technique to the pages of their story making it uniquely theirs. The artistic styles used in the Bloke’s Terrible Tomb of Terror #10 are an homage to the styles that inspire this series and beautifully echo everything that made that era of comics great.
