I can’t believe that I, Vampire keeps getting better each month.
Adrea Sorrentino handles the art duties again. It’s amazing how good these pages when Sorrentino’s drawn every issue, especially since most other DC books are plauged by fill-in artists. Not that all fill-in artists are bad but Sorrentino’s style perfectly fits the tone of the story Fialkov is telling that I can’t imagine anyone else drawing it.
Fialkov continues to blend some great humour and character work with a dark and compelling story. He’s almost created a whole new kind of vampire story (with zombie vampire vampire hunters) or at least one that feels unique to stand on its own. He ends this issue with another huge, completely unexpected status quo shake-up that should give any curious or sceptacle people a great chance to try out one of DC’s best (and my personal favourite) next issue.
Don’t get me wrong, I love Batman, I love everything Scott Snyder’s been doing on that book, but Batman is Batman. No matter how much hell you put him through he’s going to win. Andrew Bennett and Mary Seward are not Batman. That’s what makes this book so special. I have no clue what is going to happen to these characters, and I can’t wait to find out what does.
