Another fun, campy horror comic in the style of those old EC comics, "Video Tape," Issue 5 of the current run of Grimm Tales of Terror,  ​is neither the best nor the worst from the Terror ​series so far. "Video Tape" includes some excellent, creepy art, and a non-linear, neither-the-reader-nor-the-characters-really-know-what's-going-on kind of storyline. Of course, there's a typical, cheesy twist at the ending—you expect that from this style of comic. It's not a good ending, necessarily, but it's not good in a self-aware way, which makes it not bad, either.


Definitely worth reading if you like those campy, old horror comics, but if you're unsure whether you'll like the Tales of Terror ​series, this maybe isn't the best one to start with. There are stronger examples of what this series is really capable of (see my review of Issue 4, for example).
