Dark Fang from Image Comics continues to impress. And issue 5 continues the battle of good/bad/evil!

Dark Fang, the mystical lady vampire, emerges from the deep ocean intent on stopping man’s destruction of this earth. But her foes are in powerful places, and increasingly dangerous. In this issue, we rejoin Dark Fang, who is being held prisoner, maimed, bound and hanging, in front of a sword wielding, magical adversary intent on torturing her to death.

No sooner than the tides begin to turn for Dark Fang, then someone even more ruthless begins to attack her!

This series, written by Miles Gunter, and illustrated by Kelsey Shannon, is a visual treat. Drawn with a strong, fluid style by Shannon, it’s a thrilling tale of astonishing scope. Alternating between moments of extreme violence and quiet sensitivity, this comic is highly recommended.

Issue 5 concludes the current story arc; the creators now take a sabbatical until July, when it resumes where it left off. I loved this arc, maybe you will too!

Image Comics, Dark Fang 5, $3.99 for 27 pages of content. Mature rating.

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!!
