A review by Sandra Scholes

When people think of the United States, they think of all the good bits: writers, artists, musicians, and places like Mount Rushmore, and landmarks like The Statue of Liberty, but in this graphic novel of tales, writer and artist, Andy Fish explores the darker side of its history with the ghosts and monsters hidden around every corner.

The book takes the reader through the werewolves that reside in Wisconsin, the Bell Witch of Tennessee, and a haunted cemetery in Massachusetts. Fish sets the scene for these short comic strips with character Baron Samedi introducing them like the Crypt Keeper did in the Tales from the Crypt. They are well written, grip the reader and contain a clever twist at the end. Some stories you will know, some you won't, but it won't matter as they are all fun to read. Some are based on rumour, urban myth, while others are eyewitness statements from people who have allegedly seen the monsters or ghosts while on their travels.

The stories blend into each other nicely, as you hardly notice the gap between one ending and the other beginning. The atmosphere of the strips is deliciously spooky, and will leave a chill running down the spine, but they will also leave you wanting more of the same, and there will be the hope that Fish will write another sequel to Werewolves of Wisconsin and Other American Myths, Monsters and Ghosts as it is enjoyable and thrilling to read.
