Review of Interview with the Vampire: Claudia’s Story

A graphic novel adaptation of Anne Rice’s Interview with the Vampire told in Claudia’s point of view – it’s almost too good to be true! But it is indeed real and at long last I have my very own copy of Interview with the Vampire: Claudia’s Story by Anne Rice and Ashley Marie Witter. While…

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,…

Review of The Fangtastic Graphic Novel ‘Tales of the Slayers’

I am a hardcore Buffy the Vampire Slayer fangirl who feasts on every bit of Buffy-goodness I can get – the show (obviously), books, and comics – like Tales of the Slayers. As we all know, Buffy is the chosen one, the one to battle vampires and other dark forces. But before her there were…

A few months back I excitedly reported that Anne Rice’s influential vampire novel, Interview with the Vampire, is being adapted into a graphic novel. What made this news so fantastic is that while the graphic novel will tell the story we fans know and love, it’s going to be told from Claudia’s point of view…

Raptors

Stories about the undead grow in number every day.  Most remain forgettable.  Nantier Beall Minoustchine Publishing’s four part Raptors graphic novel turns out to be anything but. A few words about the artwork.  Something about it feels European, and indeed such proves to be the case.  What I read was an English translation, but the…

Review of ‘Little Bite: Vampire Detective’ by Bryan Golden

I have owned a Kindle for some time now and while I have known that you can get certain comics and graphic novels on it I had never bothered doing so, until today. I figured I’d give it a shot and see how it is reading a comic on a Kindle so I purchased an…

Vampires Have Been “Done to Death” Says Andrew Foley

As you can see by the book posts I do every month on  new vampire releases, vampires appear to be author’s favorite subject to write about – does that mean vampires have been done to death? Well Andrew Foley thinks so, which is why he created Done to Death, a graphic novel about an editor…

Every time I visit the local bookstore I head over to the wonderfully wonderful comic book section, turn into a little kid, and get lost in the magical world of comics. While scanning the section on my last trip I was surprised by how many vampire books, movies and TV shows have been adapted into…
