I am a sucker for the lycanthrope set. While Kiss Me, Satan! does indeed feature them, it is one of those mishmashes of traditional Horror creatures that also includes witches, vampires, and demons all fighting side by side and one another. It all makes sense and is done competently enough but it never gets out of second gear. It's good but not good enough for me to come back for more.
Junk Food For Thought rating: 3 out of 5.

Paper rating: 5 out of 5. Thick semi-glossy stock, with an unusual scent to it. Perhaps the Chinese sweatshop ran out of virgin Amazon rainforest trees to use and instead made this out of bamboo. The scent is probably the blood of the panda bears captured in the culling.
Binding rating: 4 out of 5. Perfect bound trade paperback.
Cardstock cover coating rating: 5 out of 5. Thick waxlike lamination.
