32 PAGES, FC, $2.99

“ONCE UPON A TIME IN HARLEM”
New York in February is never great, but back in 1929 it was unbearable. The weather sucked, of course, and prohibition meant it was hard to get a stiff drink in a hurry. But the Dragonmirs, a vampire clan from Romania really made life tough. Once they finished wiping out New York’s gangs, they turned their attention to the Police. Their plan: to take over the city, keep humans like livestock and wake up the oldest vampire in existence to seal the deal. Mankind’s feeble hopes lie with a young female newspaper reporter, a weak and dying member of the Dragonmir family, and a one-eared, one-eyed former gang boss named Eddie Falco, who hopes to persuade Samuel Kane and his gang of Harlem racketeers to join them.

Oh, add in a giant alien with unbelievable weapons called Squeed. Sounds about even, then…

    It’s kind of nice to see that Image has been taking steps away from it’s 90’s stable of properties. Books like Morning Glories, Term Life and Turf, while not being completely original, at least show a level of creativity and range that was really missing for awhile. On the other hand Haunt looks really bad.
