    Despite a few moans on too much narration this one of the best first issues to hit the stands in 2013. Day Men found a new way to flip the old vampire genre on its head it made and delivered a fairly action packed first issue. Read Full Review

    Boom! Studios has unleashed a new vampire series. The great news is Matt Gagnon and Michael Alan Nelson have come up with a different twist on the genre. Rather than focus simply on the bloodsucking creatures, we are introduced to a new world where powerful vampire families rule different territories. In their employ, they have "Day Men" that serve and protect them during the day. Brian Stelfreeze's art creates a great atmosphere with a nice variety of different types of characters as well as details in the background that will catch and hold your attention. If you've ever had any interest in the vampire genre, this is a series to check out. Breathing new life in what has felt like an overplayed concept, DAY MEN shows us there is plenty more to the idea of vampires and the world they live in. Read Full Review

    Right now, Day Men has one advantage going for it " Brian Stelfreeze. Yet the ultimate question that this book poses " namely, is the vampire craze played out? " still doesn't have an answer yet. That said, there's only so much a creative team can pack into a first issue, and there's nothing dragging this opening chapter down " there's action, there's high-concept, and there's a ton of potential here. If Gagnon and Nelson can add their own bite to Stelfreeze's supernatural levels of talent, Day Men could be BOOM! Studios' next big hit. Read Full Review

    "Day Men" #1 is a solid beginning in how it sets up the conflict and sketches out the cast and texture of its world, but to further make its mark in the crime genre or vampire fiction, the Gagnon and Nelson's characterization will need to eventually catch up with the strong pacing, lingo and Stelfreeze's visuals.
