    Overall though, Ashes was a skillfully-told story with realistic and believable characters. Matt's struggle was no Sisyphean labor by any means, but still maintained a very believable level of strife that served to keep Matt's attitude justified. Ashes is a heartwarming tale that I'd especially recommend to anyone who's overcome (or is still overcoming) their own struggle(s) in life, because you don't need to be an injured firefighter to relate closely to Matt Terwillegar.

    Comments: Ever wonder what it felt like to be a vampire? The guy depicted in this story is wandering the streets, having a burning feeling inside, a craving, a hunger, a thirst. This very strange guy is named Ash. Ash compares his craving to what junkies on heroin feel. So he finds himself going to this large nightclub for Goths. The nightclub is called Hell and he refers the place as the Disney for Goths. The artwork in this comic book is over-the-top!

    From the excessive depictions of blood stained fangs and gore to the creepy zombie like eeriness of the monsters dwelling within its pages, to its treatment of vampirism as an affliction which leaves the protagonist a ravaged corpse, vomiting at every turn, rather than a gift of immortality, Damage takes a crack at reinventing the genre and just barely misses hitting one out of the park.

    In The End: While I may not want to read the next eleven issues I can't say that I feel like I wasted my time. Sanchez obviously has a plan and he is executing it well. Ordaz's art reflects the story and shows an eye for detail that is nice to see in an independent book. Frankly I think I would enjoy this more as a movie, but that probably has more to do with the fact that I don't normally buy comics like this. Read Full Review
