Since every other volume in the Collection has a review (at the time of this writing), this will be the last in my review series. For anyone interested, I will be making a blog post ranking each volume, as soon as I complete the remaining two.
This volume itself is again more concerned with unexplained phenomena and ventures into sci-fi at times (aided by the recurring appearance of doctors or scientists in several chapters).
Story, 6: The premises were interesting, but I was fairly underwhelmed in their executions. Each one was longer than a typical one-shot (compared to previous volumes), which gave them time to
develop, but the results at the end were not particularly satisfying for me.
Art, 7: Good as always. This volume has significantly more gore than the previous volumes, so fans of that may appreciate this volume in particular.
Characters, 6: Most of the characters were fairly flat (even the protagonists). With the longer stories, I had assumed they would be a bit more fleshed out, but I didn't find that to be the case.
Enjoyment, 6: It was an entertaining read, but I don't think I'll be coming back any time soon. I enjoyed other volumes much more.
Overall, 6: As mentioned previously, gore fans will probably enjoy this simply for the artwork. Horror fans may appreciate the originality of the stories presented, but I would not necessarily recommend this if you have not read other volumes in the Collection.
Closing Thoughts: Thank you to anyone that read these reviews and found them helpful. I enjoyed writing them, and I simply hope somebody gets some use from them.
Favorite Chapter: "Long Dream"; Least Favorite: "The Bronze Statue"
