It’s a return of the new reluctant TV host, in Dark Horse’s COUNT CROWLEY: RELUCTANT MIDNIGHT MONSTER HUNTER #2.

In this story by David Dastmalchian, Count Crowley is startled by an encounter with a violent werewolf just outside the TV station. Is she drunk again, or is this real? Is she in a full moon reality show, or imagining her own imminent demise?

Jerri is certainly down on her luck, and Dastmalchian plays it entertainingly. The story flows quickly, just like Jerri’s booze. But try as she might, trouble follows her like a bloodhound’s shadow.

The artwork by Lukas Ketner, with Lauren Affe’s colours, brings us belly up to the bar for this fun story. It’s tongue-in-cheek, heart-in-mouth, as we are both horrified and entertained by the hapless happenings with Count Crowley. Check this one out: good flavour, goes nice with water or a chaser…. a monster of a chaser, that is!

Dark Horse, COUNT CROWLEY: RELUCTANT MIDNIGHT MONSTER HUNTER #2, $3.99 for 24 pages of content.

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!!
