Pretty decent issue. The Topaz character makes a big difference to this series, exerting control over the previously savage werewolf. 7/10

  Ok, it can be a little annoying when there's a scene change and the person's dialog in one scene that is ending seems to be continued or responded to in the next panel (which is a different scene), but in this book this annoyance turns into a mess as the characters switched to have almost identical hair! Bad, confusing writing! Awesome cover though.

  Yeah I know what you mean about the scene change.. I had to go back and re-read it before I realised what had happened, even after reading your comment!

  I enjoyed how Wolfman wrote the Werewolf in the ToD issue, but here he returns to that awful 1st person narration which doesn't make any sense since Jack doesn't remember his actions when he wakes up after a full moon.

  So Dracula destroys the controls in the helicopter, but somehow they still fly away in it as if nothing's wrong with it?

  Not the ending I was hoping for, but a decent tale of Jack vs. Drac.

  This was both more and less interesting than I thought it would be. It was cool that they connected the werewolf curse back to Dracula, but that was hardly a fight to the finish. Other than a few bursts of energy, Wolfie was manhandled by Drac too.

  Why shoot an arrow through the book instead of Dracula? A clear shoot, Dracula doesn't know your there and you shoot the stupid book?

  Went downhill with the helicopter.

  I just don't like this series, and the first person narration is the major reason

Ploog's art wasn't that good either

  Part 2 wasn't as good as part 1 was. Odd that each adversary had the chance to knock off their opponents and didn't do it, obviously to keep each series going. All it's doing is making everyone look like idiots. Drac. Frank. Rachel. Jack. Topaz. All of them.

2 stars. The crossover wasn't bad, but clearly didn't live up to its potential.

  I wonder what would happen if Dracula killed the werewolf? Vampire werewolf?

  I think Marv lost control over this one. It's too muddy and the ending was no where satisfying.

"I was so busy monologuing that I forgot to wreck the helicopter! Damn my dramatic needs!"

Two stars. :-(
