Dying Breath: 4.5 out of 5
Alright I have to admit I don’t know anything about the I, Vampire storylines that came before. So I think that leads me to a safe introduction to this book. First thing to talk about is the cover by Frison, just stop my heart now beautiful. However it is totally overshadowed by the interiors. Sorrentino did some of the most GORE-Geous work I have seen this year. Visuals alone would make my buy this book. The story by Fialkov has this back and forth pace and setting that worked so well and the intro to the cast was perfect. This is going to be one very intriguing title, that I have to say is at the top of my list alongside Animal Man. For $2.99 don’t pass on this one, I am really dying right now while I wait for #2 to come out.
