Issue Review

It's really two stories, but it works well as one.

The first 15 pages (by Roger McKenzie) put the focus on the newly-resurrected Dracula, and are quite dark and gruesome. After we see some innocents meeting a terrible fate, we watch a very disillusioned Dracula bringing death down on his own followers.

After that, two different writers take over and shift the focus to Dracula's estranged daughter.

This part of the script uses her continuity/backstory well to bring a palpable fury to her desire to kill her father.

That journey brings a new character into the story, and his very shocking methods.

The Angel O'Hara character appears (briefly) for the last time.

Finally, there's a confrontation/fight between father and daughter. It's been so well set up, it really feels like a fight to the death.

But there's a twist. And it's a good one at that. Ending the tale in a downbeat way.

8/10

  -Cool transition between the two stories.
-I must say I preferred Lilith's old look to the new "Bat Girl" outfit.

  After reading, it's not so much livin' large as living angry! He was in a particularly foul mood it seemed.
