Everyone’s favorite cute little dead girl, Lenore, returns in Purple Nurples.
When Titan Books asked me if I would like a copy of Lenore – Purple Nurples to review, I jumped at the chance. Admittedly, it has been awhile since I’ve read any Lenore, but I’ve always been a fan. How can you not be? She’s so cute? And dead!
For those not familiar with Lenore, she’s a staple with the goth crowd. Written by Roman Dirge, she has a unique sense of life and humor that is all her own. She could have easily been made into a Tim Burton movie (back when his films were good). And now she’s back in new adventures in Purple Nurples.
Lenore – Purple Nurples features some new stories, including one about a homicidal pig ghost, which is definitely my favorite. If you want macabre giggles, you’ll want to read that one. I also especially liked the story titled “The Dweller in the Fridge,” which had some cute surprises, especially at the end. All of these stories, though, are what you expect from Dirge: they are twisted and funny. The book also features the very first sketch that Dirge drew of Lenore, along with some other nice additional artwork.
If you’re a Lenore fan, pick this one up, but even if you’re new to the title and like your humor on the dark side, you’ll appreciate Lenore – Purple Nurples.
