This probably could have gone up on the Independent comics board but since it was written by Scott Allie, colored by Dave Stewart and featured a cover by Mike Mignola I thought it would hold a greater interest to those who regularly post here.
So anyway, I received an email a few weeks back promoting a sale of TFAW about thousands of titles greatly reduced, so I headed over to the site to browse the sale for good buys when I came across a book called The Fog. Now I vaguely remember seeing the John Carpenter movie of the same name at a drive in when I was younger but other than that I had no knowledge of this comic or the 2005 remake of the film that it was intended to tie into, but for a few bucks I figured, "What the heck, I like the creative team so why not?". And I have to say I'm glad I made that choice, the book came in today and it was a really fun read.
As if his work on BPRD wasn't proof enough this book really hammers home the notion that Scott knows horror. It's subtle, and creepy in a very personal way, it's old school horror with out the need for gore though it has it's share at the end. During my subsequent research I've discovered the the film was a critical and commercial failure but man I wish Scott had gone on to do a full adaptation of the film as the prequel he did was really fantastic.
I really can't recommend this book enough, if you're a fan of Hellboy and the BPRD(like I know everyone here reading this is) you should totally track this book down and check it out, especially if you enjoyed the Pickens County story as there is a definite similarity between the two.
