Boneyard Volume Three Richard Moore

I can't say enough good things about this book. The art is solid. The characters are well delineated and lots of fun. There's a story and it holds everything together, but the book is really about the people and their interactions.

In a nutshell, Michael Paris has inherited a Graveyard in the town of Raven's Hollow. The boneyard, as it's known locally, is inhabited by monsters. Paris sides with the monsters against the townfolk who want to clean them out. There's also a small matter of the Devil who wants to get his hands on the graveyard for reasons unknown. The heart of the book though is the relationship between Paris and Abby, a sexy little vampire who happens to be over 2000 years old. Sound like a horor book? Not really. There's lots of comedy and the art is is stylized and cartoony.

If you like your Universal movie monsters and a good laugh along with a huge helping of pure charm, I highly recommend you take a look at Boneyard. Volumes one two and three are all in print and available from NBM Publishing on their web site.
