I love Broms concepts, his anti-hero, his dark heroine. Sometimes his work is too dark, too haunting. As a mom with young children, I do not allow his books in the house. But the way his work glows, red, white, and black, and his combination of nightmares and he the Dali for genneration X?

Welcome isoell, certainly Brom has mastered the blend of latent evil and undeniable beauty, its a refreshing genre which i never get tired of. I can't answer your question though..... but the entire genre (gothic art, anime, manga) makes me far more introspective than Dali.
