When I look for new tarot decks one of the first things I look at is the art work, and the images shown here intrigued me enough to buy the deck (there were not as many pictures up then as there are now). But after the deck arrived and I looked the cards over I immediately found several issues that ruined the cards for me.
First, and least problematic, they are very small, the size of an ordinary deck of playing cards, and the border takes up much of the area on the face of the cards.
Second, not only do the cards not really follow the Rider-Waite system, many of the images do not relate to what the card is supposed to symbolize. Example: a weird little imp sitting on an ink pot for "The Hermit".
Third: the artwork just seems an excuse to put gothic images on paper, and really not even good gothic images. They look like sample art from a tattoo book. None of the female characters appear to be strong, powerful, wise, or insightful; instead they are half-naked bimbos with vacuous expressions. The nudity is not the problem, I have no problem with the nudity,it is, rather, the use of it here. Its kind of like reimagining the Tarot to include pole dancers portraying all of the female images.
Fourth: The minor arcana are just pip cards. Boring, and you better know your cards cold, or you'll be looking them up in the LWB that comes with it (and from going through that, buying an actual book would be a necessity also). The kings are dragons (which I found odd - this isn't a dragon deck), there are both knight and knave (no page) where the grim reaper appears a LOT, and the queens are mostly disappointing, although the queen of swords is, by far, the best female image in the deck.
Although this deck may work for some, it was a disappointment for me. But, at least it is being put to some use. My boyfriend is now going through it looking for tattoo ideas.
