Halloween Graphic Novel Triple Function: ‘Killadelphia’, ‘Blood Stained Enamel’, and ‘Little Monsters’ (overview)

by 7newsentmt_l84je3

In honor of Halloween, I give you a trio of opinions from the fabulous world of vampires.

Who knew vampires might are available in so many desirable variations and varieties?

From the imply streets of Philadelphia to the exploits of a firstborn criminal-minded vampire intent on promoting immortality to any mortal with sufficient coin.

Lastly, we discover ourselves with a bunch of vampire kids deserted and alone someplace after the tip of the world.


Killadelphia: Deluxe Version: Ebook One
Written by Rodney Barnes
Artwork by Jason Shawn Alexander
Printed by Picture Comics


Through the top of the pandemic, I had the pleasure of internet hosting and being featured on a panel with the nice Rodney Barnes.

Barnes, the Eisner Award, nominated Barnes is greatest to know for his work on The Boondocks, HBO’s Successful Time, Marvel Runaways, and Starz American Gods.

I knew little or no about Barnes and his different work on the time.

After the panel, my company champion thanked me for locating Barnes and couldn’t wait to dive into the world of Killadelphia.

Killadelphia: Deluxe Version: Ebook One collects points 1–12 of the acclaimed sequence.

When a small-town beat cop James Sangster Jr. comes house to bury his murdered father, the revered Philadelphia detective James Sangster Sr., he begins to unravel a thriller that leads him down a path of horrors that may shake his beliefs to their core.

As soon as the image of liberty and freedom, town has fallen prey to corruption, poverty, unemployment, brutality… and vampires.

Clocking in at over 360 pages, Killadelphia is a pleasure to learn, simply in time for Halloween.

Rodney Barnes is without doubt one of the best voices in comics right this moment.

His plotting and pacing are good, and I discovered that, apart from the character of Abigail Adams, I couldn’t predict the place the story was going. Abigail, sadly, is a one-note femme-fatale. She is the kind of character I detest, a villain for the sake of being a villain. In distinction, Killadelphia’s different antagonists, John Adams, Jupiter, and Tevin Tompkins, are fleshed-out males on a mission.

One for energy, one for revenge, one for liberty and freedom.

Alexander’s artwork is the proper companion to Barnes’ prose. Alexander has been within the business for over twenty years and has acquired three Eisner Awards nominations throughout these twenty years.

Any streaming service in search of its subsequent huge hit must be 100% lobbying Barnes to choice Killadelphia right into a sequence. It marries the real-world grittiness of The Wire to the macabre and dread-filled horror of Bram Strokers Dracula.

5 out of 5 stars.


Blood Stained Enamel: Ebook One Chunk Me
Written by Christian Ward
Artwork by Patric Reynolds
Printed by Picture Comics


The bloodletting continues in Christian Ward’s Blood Stained Enamel.

Ward is the Eisner Award-winning co-creator of ODY-C, Invisible Kingdom, and Machine Gun Wizards returns to Picture with red-hot artist Patric Reynolds for this all-new sequence—a fast-paced 100 Bullets-style crime saga with fangs!

Atticus Sloane is a firstborn vampire.

Within the Blood Stained Enamel universe, solely firstborn vampires can flip people into vampires.

Sloane is a misanthropic, asshole felony prepared to place the dignity of his heritage apart and promote immortality to the best mortal bidder.

After his newest shopper goes viral for posting her transformation on-line, the First Council captures Atticus and offers him three weeks to kill all of his wayward vampire kids except.

If he fails to take action, Atticus is a “un”-dead man strolling.

Atticus begins looking the world in a determined search of all his wayward kids, in a race in opposition to time, unaware that a number of conspiracies are brewing that threatens to derail his quest.

Blood Stained Enamel was a scary, enjoyable, and humorous thrill experience that deserves a big-screen adaptation.

Like Alexander’s in Killadelphia, Reynolds’ artwork captures the seediness and dirt of the vampire-filled felony underworld. Ward’s prose is fast and straightforward to learn.

A brief 148 pages, the ebook by no means seems like a slog, and I wrapped the story from starting to finish on my hour or so commute house from work.

5 out of 5 stars


Little Monsters, Quantity One
Written by Jeff Lemire
Artwork by Dustin Nguyen
Printed by Picture Comics


Jeff Lemire is one in every of my favourite comedian creators, and within the latest previous, Lemire has solely disenchanted as soon as within the underwhelming and underdeveloped Primordial. Lemire returns to kind in Little Monsters.

300 years into the longer term, a ragtag group are the final kids on Earth… additionally occur to be vampires.

For longer than they’ll bear in mind, these youngster vampires have lived a lifetime of everlasting surprise amongst the ruins of humanity.

However stunning occasions fracture the group and set them on a path of discovery that may shatter their innocence perpetually.

Little Monsters, Quantity One collects points one by way of six of this thrilling sequence.

Described by critics as Lord of the Flies meets vampires, that is an thrilling sequence delivered to you by the Eisner-winning inventive group of Lemire and Nguyen, the identical inventive minds behind the best-selling Descender and Ascender sequence.

Lemire’s writing is good, and he units a tone of each surprise and dread because the vampire kids uncover a bunch of people for the primary time in 300 years and expertise what it means to be a vampire.

Like each Blood Stained Enamel and Killadelphia, Nguyen’s artwork captures the grit and despair of the vampire existence and marries that to a destroyed, ruined and desolate Earth.

The collected quantity ends on a cliffhanger and is the proper jumping-on level when the sequence returns from hiatus on November 2, 2022.

5 out of 5 stars.

It’s Halloween season; y’all must get to studying these earlier than the season of the witch ends!
