    I like the idea of a revenge story mixed with vampires. For now, both subgenres are playing it close to the chest and not venturing away from the tried and true formulas, but I’d be curious to see where the story goes from here. It would be nice to have some of Noctua’s backstory sprinkled in each issue to make him more likeable to the reader, but maybe that will be covered in the second issue. Overall, I liked it.

    Noctua has some potential, and some will want to stick it out with the title. But with the number of titles I read each month ever growing, it would be hard to add this indie title to my pull list. Read Full Review

    In issue one of Noctua writer Andrew Henderson introduces to a universe where vampires, known as transhumans, co-exist with humans. Instead of running with a very supernatural setting the story takes place in the year 2051 after a virus has mutated 5% of Earth’s population into transhumans. The issue wastes no time in introducing the main characters and getting each of their stories going. First we are introduced to the vigilante Noctua as he stops a group of blood traffickers. In the process he also saves a young girl and takes her into his care. The sequence not only does a great job at showing us how deadly Noctua can be but it gives us a sense of his reputation in the world. One of the traffickers killed by Noctua turns out to be the son of Alucard Constans who aside from being a mob boss is also transhuman rights activist. The issue also introduces us to two detectives who work for the TRT; the Transhuman Relations Taskforce who are assigned to look into the blood traffick
