Video Nasties.

Well, Chris Doherty has contributed to a number of our past anthologies, and I've always tried to keep up with his work, but it's a challenge as with the works of all Independent creators due to the difficulties with distribution. I finally got around to reading his collected graphic novel of Video Nasties over Easter though, I decided to buy it as I'd managed to miss a few of the single issues, and tracking htem down would be a challenge, and hell ... it's a great looking book. I couldn't believe my luck when I saw the collected edition on the shelf of my local comic shop, an opportunity too good to miss.  
I must say that the book blew me away.
It's a wonderfully dark tale about growing up in today's video culture and despite the clues that Chris left for me as I travelled the pages I was caught out by the twists and turns and the ending wasn't what I expected it to be. It was so much better.
Don't take my word for it though, pick up your own copy at or catch up with Chris through his blog over at and see which Cons he'll be at this year.
You can thank me later.


  1. Just bought it from Lulu on your recommendation.
    Looking forward to a corking read.

  2. You'll love it ... we can discuss it at our next Westernoir meeting ...
