I’ll say this about The Trials and Tribulations of Miss Tilney, it wears its influences thoroughly on its sleeve. Specifically this is heavily inspired by the early volumes of League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, the latest slew of Guy Ritchie-directed Sherlock Holmes movies, and probably just about any fun, Victorian-era, quasi-steampunkish movie or comic that’s come out in the past ten or twelve years. Is it a good read? Eh, you know exactly what you’re getting in this. Oh, and it moves fast. Possibly too fast, it’s hard to say.

There doesn’t appear to be a straightforward pitch for the series’ premise, but to sum up the first issue: the titular character, a newspaper columnist longing to do real journalism, gets the opportunity to do so. Her editor is looking for someone to investigate The Harwood Murders. Lord Beowolf Harwood, a renowned hunter, was at a party in his honor when he suddenly shot up the guests. After a very Silence of The Lambs-esque build-up, Miss Tilney gets an interview with him only to discover that he’s no Hannibal Lecter. Locked up with his accomplice, Dr. Plum, he manages to convince her of his innocence and suggests that there’s a more sinister plot afoot. Escape plans are quickly enacted and before we know it, the three are secluded in Harwoods Manner where things quickly go violent and grim.

Dusk Comics: Fullmoon StoriesFullmoon Stories
Story and Artwork by Johan Hoff
Dusk Comics
Release date August 29, 2011
Cover Price: $11.68

In today’s pop culture, when a story is branded as horror, one thinks of violent serial killers slashing people to bits or monsters chasing teenagers down by a creepy lake. While these elements certainly evoke terror, it is refreshing to see a more classic take on horror every once in a while. In Johan Hoff‘s Fullmoon Stories, the author has collected five short pieces of classically styled horror that have all the best elements of your favorite campfire fare.

In the first story, entitled “She Was Loved”, our mysterious narrator tells a tale of a love lost before it’s time, and the lengths a man would go to to see it restored. The masked narrator then takes us to the world of a lonely young woman who, after finding a companion in an odd place, finds herself doing something she never thought possible. An explorer gets more than he could have asked for in “Her Name Was Tragedy” after unrequited love for a member of his expedition is finally returned in a strange alternate reality. Through the narrator we also meet a projectionist who becomes obsessed with something he can’t explain, and the family of a young girl who has been keeping a terrible secret from her.
