This is not how I was expecting this story to go!

I was expecting your garden variety vampire tale, animalistic vampires hell-bent on killing everyone and one man to stop them. I like this version, normal folk stepping WAY out of their comfort zone and just getting on with it I mean just chilling out in the kitchen with your recently turned father while he sips on a glass of blood calmly discussing the vampire problem is just brilliant.

The artwork is still really gritty and dark which maintains the horror of the tale and you are always kept on your toes, you cant relax especially not with a room full of vamps crowding below a victim reminding you that this is still a horror tale. The implication of a very famous figure brings home the seriousness of the situation they are facing and the danger they are in. There is hope however and I think a key character will be Tevin a vamp that seems to buck the curve and could possibly sway to fight on the side of Jimmy, if not he could be dangerous for humans and vampires alike!

A 34 year old manchild from Scotland, bravely fighting the on going war between a love of comics and space to keep them. Boxes are filling and thanks to the digital age we live in so is the harddrive! I love finding a new comic to obsess over and rediscovering old comics to immerse myself in from the very first issue. A healthy mix of the seven dwarves of geekdom all wrapped up in one kilted bundle of amusement
