More fantastic tales straight from Robert Ripley himself, told by legendary talents and rising stars alike! 48 pulse-pounding pages of magic and mystery featuring Howard Mackie, The Legend of Stingy Jack, Tony Isabella, The Inexplicable Winchester Mansion, and much, much more! Even when you see it, you won't believe it!

I’ve been a fan of Ripley’s Belive it or Not for years. I’m not kidding, I used to watch episodes then go to school and start talking to my friends about all the weird but true things I’d seen. Of course, my friends were less than interested in anything that didn’t have to do with makeup or boys so I was pretty much on my own there.

Now Ripley’s is in comic form and I couldn’t be more thrilled! Zenescope is bringing some of the most captivating and unforgettable stories to life with writers Howard Mackie, Victoria Rau, Ben Meares, and more. I enjoyed the straight-to-the-good-stuff style of writing in this issue, there wasn’t a lot of droning on and on about things that weren’t relevant to the story and while the stories were kept brief, they were no less interesting. I found myself turning to Google to look up some of these stories just because I wanted more information.

As for the illustrations, they were on point for sure and each artist made sure to emphasize the important parts of each odd but true tale. I had just as much fun looking over the artwork as I did reading the story. Fans of Ripley’s Believe it or Not will enjoy this new take as will people who just like to read strange but true stories. The added benefit is that there are some great illustrations to go with the stories.
