Comic Book Cover For Weird Thrillers #3
Weird Thrillers #3 (3 of 5)
   By melbee
Whilst browsing CB+ I came across the five issues of this title. After reading them all, I just have to say that this #3 issue is, in my view, in a class of its own. The writing, artwork, inks and colours are great, and whilst the other four issues are extremely worthy supporters, this particular issue is outstanding. Thank you JonTheScanner for the quality scans which add to our enjoyment of these books- particularly this one- Weird Thrillers#3! Melbee. :D
