Haunt, Volume 1 by Robert Kirkman
My rating: 1 of 5 stars
I think it's safe to say now that I don't like Robert Kirkman's storytelling. The Walking Dead left me cold (no pun intended), Outcast could have potential but not enough to keep me coming back for more, and this... Well, this is just bad. The pacing is wildly fast and sporadic, to the point that I felt I had missed huge chunks of story; none of the characters are all that fleshed out; Haunt feels like the love child of 90s Spawn and Venom. Basically, what this really feels like to me is all the terrible aspects of McFarlane's writing and character development with Kirkman valiantly trying to shine it up a bit, and it does not work. Needless to say, I will not be pursuing this series further, nor much else by Kirkman.

I simply want to read.
I'll more than likely occasionally post on here what I've been reading, and if there is something that really blows my mind, I'll probably have more to say about it and may write up a proper post, but for right now, things are going to be very quiet around here.
As always, happy reading!
2017 editI will continue to blog according to my health and ability, and connecting my posts thru Goodreads, so please be patient if things get quiet around here again this year. 2017 edit #2I am happy to report that my bone marrow transplant was a success and that I'm feeling more like myself everyday. That said, I'm going to try to start blogging a little more frequently, but please bare with me as I still continue to recover.
