Volume 6 of the graphic novel series Vincent Price Presents features classic gothic horror! One of classic Hollywood's most famous scary men, Vincent Price made a name for himself in classic mysteries and thrillers throughout the 1940s, 50s and 60s. The series will feature some of Price's films as well as developing new frightening ones with his estate. Welcome back to the macabre world of Vincent Price. Story include My Dame, Orok and more!

Vincent Price is my favorite horror actor from old films. He was a renaissance man. He acted, collected artwork, and had a recipe book out (my high school friend had this book). He enjoyed doing comedic roles as much as horror. His films included The Tower of London, The Invisible Man Returns, The Ten Commandments, House of Wax (1953), House on Haunted Hill (1958), The Fly (1958), The Tingler, The Comedy of Terrors, Edward Scissorhands, Peter Cottontail, The Great Mouse Detective, and more , many more, ending at the Heart of Justice. You can find out the other films and more at .

So that there are a comic series attached to him and his estate, well, I gladly took to reviewing this comic and two others. This one contains two detective crossed with the supernatural stories, a twist on the werewolf tale, and a story that shows how dreams and reality can be one and the same sometimes.

The first two have a private detective, Peter Wood who resembles somewhat Price himself, hired to do investigations. The first one a man hires him to find his wife who had disappeared after they saw a movie at the cinema. The man stopped at the restroom while she waited for him outside. All the police found is a few spots of blood. The only clue P.I. Wood found is a coin with blood on it. From there he makes stops around town, then he checks out Romero Park. He finds her all right—no longer alive and just killed two people, eating them. He enclosed her in the trunk of his car and calls the husband. This where there is a twist to the zombie story. And as is quoted in the beginning, “the course to true love never did run smooth.”

The second story has P.I. Peter Wood involved again, this time the theme about what would happen if memories were lost. His client, Jack is a man who seems to forget quite easily. But there is a woman who keeps breaking into his house and he wants her caught. The police haven’t been much help, and he wants his house monitored closely and constantly. Wood stays the night, but the woman gets by him to call the old man by name and tell him she misses him. Then vanish. Though Wood wonders if the old man is losing it, he investigates to see if any enemies and discovered he’d been married. His wife died, but the daughter is alive. She looks like the picture the P.I, found in the house, too. He learns of what is truly haunting Jack. More than ghosts can haunt us.

The third story has Orok, a man of a primitive society who has a young daughter, Do. They live with their clan in a jungle or forest. One night a werewolf attacks them and steals the little girl away. Orok goes after her. Intermingling with his hunting the werewolf who has his child, is the one where his twin brother is attacked and killed by a werewolf and buried, But the werewolf awakens and digs its way out. An elder of the tribe calls his daughter from the belly of the moon. Her spirit will lead him to his twin, who he must slay. This story also has a twist to it. One I didn’t expect. But I admit the werewolf’s story told at the same time as Orok’s confused me. It could have been separated. But that is my only complaint.

The last tale, “The Hampster,” begins with three hamsters in a cage. A white hamster has a nightmare where he is a man killed by another man. He tries to explain this to the two others, Bernard and Ricky when he awakes. Tells them he is not really a hamster. The other two also say they are not. Becomes agitated when two young men enter the room they are in, telling Bernard and Ricky that is him and his killer. The teens call up Bloody Mary and will sacrifice a hamster in the microwave. This time though, the hamster convinces his human self to stop the other as he will grow up to be the Bloody Mary killer. He kills the killers, but ends up in prison. And like the other two, there is a twist ending.

Just be sure to read “Vincent Presents. Volume 6” in the light of day; it’s a nightmare of an anthology.

I give “Vincent Presents. Volume 6” 4 sheep.

  1. I really like the graphics and it sounds like the stories are twisted funny :) Thank you for sharing with us.

  2. I've never really been into the whole comic or graphic novel thing but I loved Vincent Price so I might get this one.
