“After a successful raid on the zombie-infected town of Corben, the newly reinstated FVZA recruits are on high alert. But as the agency scans the world for new outbreaks of the undead virus, the vampire high council begins its plan for domination of the United States. Only the knowledge of newly appointed agency adviser Hugo Pecos and the battle skills of his grandchildren, Landra and Vidal, will give the FVZA a fighting chance at extinguishing the undead threat once and for all!“
Artwork: 4.0 out of 5
TI just can’t seem to get over how great this issue looks. While I would have liked some more action scenes in it, I think it did just an amazing job setting the mood. Just as in issue #1, the panels are all so fresh and clean, the colors really pop, and if you like me, you might have to clean up the drool on the horror filled death pages. All in all this lives up to the high quality I expect from Radical.
Story: 4.0 out of 5
The storyline in this issue seemed to just move at a nice steady pace. While it’s not a bad thing I would have liked a little more action to be thrown in to just give it a different edge. I liked this issue though because it just builds a great base for the final issue to stand on. So while it wasn’t as exciting as the first, it gets the job done and I am so hooked on what I have read so far.
Dying Breath: 4.0 out of 5
I know I say it often but I love it. The artwork is amazing. The story is original and compelling. I mean what more can you ask for! I wish it came out everyday because I just want more and more. I have been a big fan of Radical’s books so far. I only passed on two titles , one of which I just read and reviewed (Incarnate), but everything they do in my opinion is just put out winners. Read FVZA and you will know why, this is one sure fire hit that true Vampire fans can not miss.
