Neil Gaiman and Alice Cooper team up in this creepy comic book. The Showman (Alice Cooper in appearance) invites a young man into view his delightful show of horror and the macabre. The boy, in an attempt to prove his bravery to his less than savory friends, goes with the Showman and watches his show, but even once he escapes the theater the show seems to go on. Not only a comic about an ancient evil, but a coming-of-age story as well. It is also a perfect read for the October season, due to the timeliness of the story (taking place right at Halloween). The imagery and artwork is superb, details keep popping out every time you scan the page.
