I checked this out last week and thought it was pretty cool. Tim Seely returns to horror with Vertigo's Imaginary Fiends. I'm a big fan of Revival so I was excited to check this out. The Stephen Molnar artwork is sufficiently creepy and the character designs are interesting. The solicit teases that "the Boogeyman is more than a figment of a child's imagination" and the story is set in a world where children's' imaginary friends are actually inter-dimensional parasites that feed off of people. Some parasites can become so strong that they can effect the real world. There is a special unit of law enforcement that deals with them and they recruit a young woman who spends her life in a mental institution for stabbing her friend because a parasite named Polly Peachpit told her to. Right away I couldn't help but notice to similarities to the real life Slender Man case that involves similar circumstances which I think is obviously intentional.
I wish I could say I loved it - I wanted to. The synopsis really had me intrigued - a combination of a dark, gritty murder investigation and a horror story. I can't really fault the plot, writing, or artwork in themselves, but by the end I just felt I guess unfulfilled. I remember putting it down after the first time I read it and thinking "Oh, okay." And that was that. It didn't really make any great impression on me, or cause me to ponder on it over the next few days, it was just kinda instantly forgettable. That's why I reread it, hoping this time I'd see something more in it. Sadly no. I give it maybe 6.5/10
