Or – “I Wonder If This Ending Wasn’t Planned…” Change is inevitable, say the sooth-sayers, but I’m still a little bummed to see another of my favorite DC New 52 titles go the way of the Skateman. Will Andrew Bennett go out with a bang or a whimper? Your Major Spoilers review awaits!
Definitely a niche book, DC’s horror title I, VAMPIRE has struggled to find its audience, and is quickly approaching its last issue with #19. However, the other horror books of the New 52, including Swamp Thing, and Justice League Dark have all met with critical acclaim. With the end of the series nearing, should latecomers give this book a chance? Major Spoilers has your review…
Or – “I’m Always Pleasantly Surprised When This One Doesn’t Get Cancelled…” The original ‘I… Vampire’ series fell right in the time when I was first exposed to comics, a time when I would buy anything stapled at the spine, regardless of content or genre. I vaguely remember those stories as the standout tales from the House of Mystery issues of my youth, and I was very impressed by the launch of Andrew Bennett’s revived book in the New 52. Will this origin issue continue to impress? Your Major Spoilers review awaits!
Or – “It Can’t Rain All The Time…” After the threat of the Enchantress and the vampire war, John Constantine’s team is short a few members and facing a greater threat than ever. Will a little new blood (both figuratively and literally) get things back on track?
Or – “Titles With Commas Are Harder To Alphabetize…” Part of me wanted to dismiss this book as nothing more than an attempt to cash in on the post-Twilight vampire proliferation, but then I remember how good the original run of “I, Vampire” was back in the day. To put this in perspective: With the sole exception of the issue featuring ‘The Poster Plague,’ I do NOT own an issue of House of Mystery that doesn’t feature I, Vampire or Dial H For Hero (and those Dial H issues are usually too spendy for my comic spending habits.)
