Steven Weissman’s Yikes comics have garnered critical acclaim but haven’t hit the mainstream quite yet. There are other collections of his comics available from Fantagraphics, but this collection of stories is from Weissman’s archive, either previously unpublished or only printed on a small scale.

Weissman takes horror clichés (vampires, Frankenstein’s monster, Medusa etc) and recasts them as children, mixing bizarre kiddie horror with the cute, knowingly innocent humour of Peanuts. In this collection you can see his early takes on these and other characters.
