COMIC Review

I, Vampire


This one is an interesting review.
There have been a ton of vampire and zombie comics/TV show/movies coming out, I know.  I will admit now, I really like them!  So, I am a little biased.  But, even I, was reluctant to read this one.  I didn't know anything about the previous series in the Vertigo lot so this was a fresh start for me. 
 i vampire

That being said, I really like this series!  Anytime Batman and vampires are in the same comic, I am there! 


OK, the series starts with a 600 year old vampire, Andrew Bennett.  He is like Blade, in that he is a vampire that doesn't like vampires and he has been going around killing them.  One vampire in particular, Mary, has been causing a ton of trouble and he feels responsible because he created her.  The story leads Andrew and a couple friends to Gotham where a certain super hero confronts him.


Without spoiling anything, they decide to confront the vampires together.  This was a fun read!  Issue #6 ends with the promise of the first DC crossover.  Justice League Dark and I, Vampire will join forces in issues #7.  


I can't wait because issue #6 ends with a big cliffhanger! 



Thank you so much for your support of our new comic and game shop.  We look forward to taking care of all of your comic and game needs.
