In My Not So Humble Opinion reviews FEAR, MY DEAR

"Haspiel’s illustration is beautiful, as well as beautifully grotesque. I’ve always found his art to be impressive, but this is undoubtedly some of his strongest work.

You can certainly see the influence to the two gods of Silver Age comic books, Jack Kirby and Steve Ditko, in Haspiel’s work. At times Billy brings to mind Kirby’s two iconic tough guys, Ben Grimm / The Thing and Sgt. Fury. Jane somewhat resembles the curvy, wide-hipped, big-haired groovy gals that The King so evocatively rendered. The “space-god” which is awakened by Billy and Jane’s tempestuous love recalls something from one of Ditko’s Doctor Strange stories.

Nevertheless, despite those clear influences, Haspiel possesses a style all his own. Like all the best artists, he is inspired by elements from those who went before him, experiments with them, takes them in different directions, and creates something new & distinctive in the process."
