BOOM! Studios release a dark horror fantasy graphic novel of The Complete Crimson.

Now, this is almost basically a Halloween story, but there are some different stories than Nosferatu or Dracula, but this comic would take you to a different world between humans and monsters. To begin, there’s nothing unusual to this world, right until God created heaven and earth. But it’s a mystery of how the demons fought a war against the gods, but right until human beings dominated earth as it’s own, but the demons are around in the present day.

First of all, I wouldn’t have known that a human can actually turn into a vampire, the story is about boy named Alex who wanted to go to a party with his friends. Despite his bad attitude and grades, his father scolds him until he ran away from home and joined his friends, after that he was attacked by some monsters, and some vampire took him in for some hospitality and then he turned into a cold-hearted vampire. This is actually the most random shit as it gets, the boy backstabs his father and runs away from home when he ended in some monster’s territory just to have him start his life as a vampire. When does he ever going to survive?

Now, I just wondered at some point, as for any kind of story that I’ve read, vampires can actually suck human’s blood, but Alex is new to this. Even though for now, he’s out there somewhere around the night with Dracula. But there is some confusion from the comic, why in the fuck is Homer Simpson outside in New York? There’s even a sign saying Springfield, I mean does Homer gets a limited time pass to drink Duff until he passes out? It doesn’t make any sense of this. Does this have anything to do with the story? And either way, Alex wears some vampiric clothing just like from the 1994 movie: The Crow, I mean I don’t even know what the plot of this story anymore. Then again, how does the story ever involves with vampires in the first place? It’s not important, this is just another vampire story which basically involves average teenagers who can do whatever they want. This isn’t The Outsiders, what is this?!

Anyway, I’m gonna wrap this up, the story seemed to have any random facts between the teenager boy and a vampire, but it’s more to that this comic is amazing to have as a fantasy genre. And the artwork is too amazing, to begin with because the artist brought up some fascinating details for the characters and creatures from hell. However, on this large graphic novel, it’s too crazy to know that more than one vampire story like this one would actually exist. I wouldn’t mind this graphic novel because it’s too epic to see vampires and monsters in the modern world, if you really want to read another vampire story, then this one is for you.
