Boneyard #19

Posted: Saturday, October 8, 2005

Writer/Artist: Richard Moore
Publisher: NBM

Richard Moore pulls a fast one with the resolution to last issue’s cliffhanger, but readers won’t feel cheated. Later, the promise of the cover to Boneyard is met.

Boneyard can go to high drama or high comedy at the drop of a stovepipe hat. This issue Moore creates primo comedy bits and sweet character interaction, but he also directs Abbey the vampire in a knockdown drag-out fight against a thinly disguised Jason Vorhees.

Meanwhile back at the cemetery, the Jack O’ Lantern creature invades the dreams of the cast. Moore uses the opportunity to deepen the histories of his players and hint at some of the tragedies behind the laughter.

Moore concludes the book with another welcome quartet of Hogsbreath comic strips that are mere footfalls away from Berke Breathed’s Bloom County.
