Machines and Bloodlust Collide in the Innovative Tale of ‘Transfusion’

Very rarely do I come across a vampire story that is completely new to me, one that is truly innovative and unlike anything I have read before.transfusion I recently came across such a story in the IDW comic Transfusion. Transfusion is a 3-issue miniseries, as of right now issues #1 and 2 have been released, with the third hitting stores February 27, 2013. Check out my review of Issue #1 below.


“In a future overrun by out-of-control machines and monsters, a handful of human survivors try to fight their way back to a normal life. But what is normal in a world where both monsters and machines need human blood? And which are the real bad guys? Find out in this horrific new series by 30 Days of Night co-creator Steve Niles and menton3, the demented artist behind Monocyte.”

dec120487Love! I am not a fan of cookie cutter comic book art, I love when artists add their own flair and style to a comic. It makes it so much more visually appealing. menton3’s art in this comic is phenomenal. I loved how wickedly dark and grungy it was. The style was perfect to the story and each page he created added to the story in ways words couldn’t. I was impressed.

Story 5 out of 5
So twisted, yet so wonderful. A world taken over by robots isn’t actually a new storyline. But a world taken over by robots that run on blood most certainty is. Vampire robots – that is a new one for me. Place them in a post-apocalyptic setting with only a few remaining humans and you’ve got a combination I can’t resist. I am a happy happy woman.

After one issue I am in love with Transfusion. It’s definitely a comic I recommend.
