Characters speaking in long flowery speeches, never seeming like real people. Awful. 2/10

  While the story actually in the order wasn't bad, a bit wordy and pretentious, the other non-Order stories in this one were all really good.

  To be honest, I kind of breezed over this one after the first couple of pages. Kind of a boring story line.

  Am I the only one who had no clue at all what was going on in this story?

  I guess it's too much to ask for backstory, character development and story depth and quality. What is this, late 1960's Marvel?

  Loved this one, but agree the last page was difficult to read.

  I think I understood everything, except for why her father was actually there. When he first showed up I thought he must be working with the cult, but it sure doesn't seem that way by the end. So again, why was he there at all?
So the cult is named Demon-Fire, and the henchman is called Devil-Flame? Who's the next one? Fiend-Blaze? Ghoul-Torch?

  I'm quite beyond done with vampires, zombies, werewolves, mummies, and other horror themes. Please go away horror books.

  The second part of the question posed in the title was not answered to my satisfaction.

  "This is not the time for us to attack one another," says Morbius, immediately after physically attacking his friend.

  The Morbius story was terrible. Nice art all throughout the magazine though. Some early Chaykin that looks like Chaykin with the Highwaymen story. I enjoy the lists of books and movies, gives me things to hunt down.

  I think my biggest problem with Morbius are his looks. The guy just Looks so damn ridiculous!
I find it impossible to take him seriously, which makes all of his stories - despite their seriousness - seem nothing but silly to me.

  I do think the magazine format serves a Morbius series well, but this story was quite a mess. The title pretty much speaks for me: what the Hell am I doing here? It may have continued the Demon-Fire arc, but didn't really advance the story. In spite of all that, however, I thought Amanda offering herself to Morbius was worth the price of admission alone.

And yeah, Morbius's looks are a little ridiculous. I understand Sutton was probably going for a more menacing, grotesque look, but that was a little over the top.

2 stars. Wasn't great, but I don't quite get the really low rating here. Maybe some horror title burnout?

  Almost fell asleep reading that and I rally don't think I missed anything. The fact that some of the words were illegible didn't help.
