dark water

dark water
koji suzuki & meimu
adv manga
published 2004

Inspired by the Japanese thriller of the same name, these pages hold the macabre tales of a mother's psychological torment in a rundown apartment complex, another man's terror upon the open sea, the unshakable lure of the deep, and a message from a watery grave.  A haunting will begin, and these people will learn that no one is safe from the mysteries that lie within the murky depths of Dark Water.

Teeny tiny short stories.  Not quite creepy enough and the art was lacking.  It was as if they really wanted to get this out very fast for some deadline and they just half-assed it.

Some of the stories were trying to be outright creepy.  There's something dangerous in the water.  Then there was the 'water can kill you' one.  Meh.  I've said before that I don't generally find scary books scary so maybe it's just me, but I think this one missed the mark big time.
