Pete Von Sholly's Extremely Weird Stories [Comics]

This is a very over-the-top collection of horror/weird comic book stories using an interesting technique. Sholly hires actors and then photographs them performing scenes from his sketched layouts. Later, he adds word bubbles to the photos and puts them in sequence to create a story. There's custom artwork for the monsters and a lot of strange special effects. It's very creative, even though the plots don't really get beyond the EC horror "twist-in-the-tail" style. The TPB is worth picking up cheap if you're interested in something a little different . . .
