Spoiler-Free Review:

 Horror has many forms. People fear many different things. Fear of water & deep ocean full of unknown is rattling, especially among those who can’t swim. Just imagine what if you combine this fear with the paranormal? The result is breathtaking and entertaining horror comic anthology- A Lungful of Brine: Nautical Horror Anthology by Dan Tappan.


  The horror comic anthology (92 pages) starts with the scary story of “The Angler” about fishing and a fisherman’s luck which leads a young man to a diner where he gets some work for food that seems too tasty to be true. So is the offer. A great twist in the end that turns the tables! “Whispers from the Deep” story is about a shell that gets discovered in the belly of dead whale found on a beach. A  man brings home that shell and his kid starts to play with it but then he starts acting in a weird way. What’s the secret of the shell? The story has a great ending to it. Super adventurous.


   Mermaid fans have something to cherish in the story called “The Man & The Mermaid“. It’s a beautiful story of love that takes a sad turn thanks to greed. It’s like a lesson for the readers who love to keep giving just to make someone happy. The real question is, do they deserve it? I was pleasantly surprised to see such a story with a deep meaning. The ending is super scary and unexpected!  “First Contact with Pod X” is an adventurous and most realistic of all. Scuba divers, deep sea discovery and an important message about saving the ocean and the life that resides in it. “Skin Graft” is a tale of accident, transformation and perhaps a take on aliens but with an oceanic twist. Shocking, funny and surprising!
 All five tales are enjoyable and each has a unique value. Each story has different art style and are bound together by their common link to the ocean. You also get some extra artworks and sketches with this Anthology!


    The illustrations suit the stories well. There is a lot of horror, some humor, mild non-suggestive nudity and action. A great treat for teens and above. The stories are well lettered, and editing is also sharp.
  Too many chefs spoil the broth is not the case here as over 9 creators from around the world have made nothing short of a masterpiece. A unique anthology which explores nautical horror. Entertaining, compelling, scary and filled with hauntingly beautiful illustrations, A Lungful of Brine is highly recommended for horror and ocean fans!
