A horror comic that launched the careers of two of my favorite comic creators, Peter Milligan and Chris Bachalo, this collection of its first six issues shows some interesting contrasts. The first issue is brilliant, as is the 4th: those both happen to be the beginning of the story arcs gathered here. Unfortunately the denouements of each aren't quite as satisfying. It's a good look at the creators' early careers, and an interesting examination of the psyche of American society -- at a stretch, it could be considered required reading for the comicbook aficionado -- but it's not particularly compelling, in my opinion.
