Writer Miles Gunter and artist Kelsey Shannon continue their vampiric tale in issue 2 of Image Comics’ Dark Fang.

As we saw in issue 1, our main character is a shapely young woman, who fished for a living long ago but was attacked and made into a vampire. Many years later, after her ocean home was destroyed, she is adapting to modern day life on land. But she’s angry, and wants to lash out against those who have ruined “her” ocean! Let’s put it this way: stay out of her way, and you don’t want to be on the receiving end of her wrath.

This is a delightfully told tale, told ‘cold’, as they say about revenge. This issue takes is all up a notch. The creepy elements that play into the story’s sidelines are wonderful, and well thought out. Writing is smooth, art is gorgeous; colour is really really good too.

If you like Vampirella and other modern vampire stories, you will likely enjoy this title, it’s recommended.

About Alan Spinney

After a career of graphic design, art direction and copywriting, I still have a passion for words and pictures. I love it when a comic book comes together; the story is tight, and the drawings lead me forward. Art with words... the toughest storytelling technique to get right. Was this comic book worth your money? Let's see!!
