Mignola brings the character from a novel to life, as the we take a, perhaps, temporary step out of the larger B.P.R.D and Hellboy universe to watch a man hunt for the ultimate vampire. Ben Stenbeck does a decent job of giving the comics the creepy-crawlies, but the characters themselves seem to be shadows of characters in The Rime of the Ancient Mariner and the Nutcracker (and my apologies for the oh-don’t-we-think-we’re-smart references). It’s entertaining, but for me, at least, not as original as Mignola’s other works. Give it a chance if it you like a bit of a twist with the vampire hunter storylines.

I give it 6 out of 10 Grahams
