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. 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.”

Love! 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. menton3âs 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 couldnât. I was impressed.

So twisted, yet so wonderful. A world taken over by robots isnât actually a new storyline. But a world taken over by robots that run on blood most certainty is. Vampire robots â that is a new one for me. Place them in a post-apocalyptic setting with only a few remaining humans and youâve got a combination I canât resist. I am a happy happy woman.
After one issue I am in love with Transfusion. Itâs definitely a comic I recommend.
Moonlight (aka Amanda) loves to write about, read about and learn about everything pertaining to vampires. You will most likely find her huddled over a book of vampire folklore with coffee in hand. Touch her coffee and she may bite you (and not in the fun way).
