Story connections become clearer in what has been described as Neil Gibson’s darkest release to date, the third volume of the Twisted Dark series. This time around we’re shown an innovative use for bamboo, and are introduced to a sinister little girl who just wants a bit of peace and quiet.

This is a collection of bizarre short stories often with fairly dark themes. Some of the stories were very overtly obvious in connecting while others were far more subtle. I don’t think I’ve picked up on all of the connections quite yet because they really are that subtle and take quite a bit of thinking. For me, most of these stories were dark, creepy, sometimes macabre enough to be considered in the realm of horror. I do think this is subject to personal taste though. While I enjoyed the very interesting stories and considering how they connected to one another I was a bit underwhelmed with the actual art. It was done very well but wasn’t a style that I personally find very appealing. There were a few scenes when I had trouble being able to tell various characters apart and had to go back and forth and really examine them, especially with men. I even did this between various stories a few times just to check. Overall I think this is a great choice for anyone who enjoys both graphic novels and the horror genre.
