The Ghastly Ones and Other Fiendish Frolics follows in the grand and ghoulish tradition of Edward Gorey and Charles Addams in a delightfully gruesome and fanciful, tongue-in-cheek look at maniacs, monsters, and mayhem. Creeping through the pages are lurking beasties, axe-swinging psychos, and pouncing bloodsuckers - each one described in darkly witty verse and captured in

"The Ghastly Ones" is a book of short rhymes accompanied with excellent illustrations of murder and monsters by the brilliant Richard Sala. Fans of Sala's gothic horror comics will enjoy this as well though it is much shorter than his previous books.

It's a small paperback book with a rhyme, usually a sentence or so on one page, and an illustration on the opposite page. You can get through it in no time but Sala's unique drawing style is what makes the book.

It's hard to say what to put The Ghastly Ones under. It's not really a comic, but it's not really an art book. A little collection of rhymes about murderers and monsters accompanying illustrations by Richard Sala, whose work continues to grow on me the more I delve into it. This is a great, cute little thing, and I'm really glad I picked up a copy.

He has written and drawn a number of unusual graphic novels which often combine elements of classic mystery and horror stories and which have been known to cause readers to emit chuckles as well as gas ...more
