Review of Virgin Vampires

Way back in the 1970s, Hammer films had plans (never realized) to make a fourth Karnstein film as a follow-up to Twins of Evil.  The title was to have been Vampire Virgins. When I heard of the following graphic novel, little wonder if I wondered about any possible connection! Virgin Vampires (or Once Upon a…

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,…

American Wasteland is One Helluva Bloody Ride

Coooomiiiiics! I came across another vampire comic that I had never read (Gasp!)! While scanning my comic app I discovered American Wasteland, a comic about a vampire apocalypse. For those who don’t know me (hey, I’m Amanda aka Moonlight)), I have a semi-disturbing love for stories of the apocalypse, particularly post-apocalypse. American Wasteland is set…

All Action Classic Dracula

Like many a vampire fan, I own multiple adaptations of Bram Stoker’s seminal novel Dracula.  They vary considerably in style, medium, approach and (of course) quality.  But several are graphic novels, and one of these maybe deserves a bit more publicity.  I refer to the All Action Classics version from Sterling Publishing, written by Michael…

Vampires Attack Land and Sea in ‘Namor: The First Mutant’

I just got my hands on the incredible, yet short-lived, Marvel comic Namor: The First Mutant Issue #1. The second I heard of Namor, who is half Atlantean and half mutant, I HAD to give his comic a read – especially when I learned they threw vampires into the story as well. “Spinning out of…

‘Buffy The Vampire Slayer’ Comic Series To Introduce First Gay Character

Joss Whedon’s Buffy the Vampire Slayer has always been forward-thinking with its storylines and the wide variety of characters found in both the show and the comic series (which picked up where the show left off). It’s one of the many reasons the show, and now the comics, have had such a diverse fanbase. Buffy…
