    Likewise, Maberry shows a deft touch with the story often taking shocking, unexpected turns. Like much great works of genre fiction – and make no mistake this a great work – Bad Blood uses the trappings of the genre to explore universal thoughts and feelings. This melancholy story of loss and revenge is only two issues in and it already has me by the jugular. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Kimberly Gibson Feb 7, 2014

    Maberry is a master at dialogue; I mean a lot of comics out there don't make you feel anything but Maberry is a crafty one, indeed. Trick's utter torment just hits you right in the emotional twisty part of your guts. You just become divulged into a subculture of vampire fetishes and it feels like the myth becomes a reality. Then add Crook's illustrations on top of that and BAM!! You got yourself a gold star dark fantasy comic. Crook always has an eye for color scheme; issue two demonstrates that talent, it's like you fall into this oblivion of horror that only trick feels. Read Full Review

    Bloody Disgusting - Zac Thompson Feb 6, 2014

    This comic is one part truth, one part realism, and one part fantasy. Unless vampires truly exist. Then its three parts scary-as-shit reality. Read Full Review

    This issue is clearly not as action packed as the previous. However, that's not to say that this issue is all character development and setting the scene. Maberry knows how to leave a book on a cliffhanger moment. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - John McCubbin Feb 4, 2014

    Bad Blood continues to build on it's fantastic opening. It had some fabulous interactions and despite there not being a lot of progression till the end I'd still highly recommend this issue. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Sam Roche Feb 5, 2014

    Yes, it is. As Jonathan Maberry said in my interview with him, "It's not the feel good story of the year" but we don't hit anyone over the head with it." This is a depressing, interesting, contemporary look at a different side of the vampire genre. Read Full Review

    Hulking Reviewer - Kareem Ali Feb 6, 2014

    Bad Blood #2 is an ok issue that focuses more on the views of those who worship vampires and believe them to be capable of lifting them out of their daily struggles than dealing with actual vampires. Since all they expressed was speculation it's unclear whether any of it actually applies to the vampires in this series, and so parts of this issue felt redundant. However the growing relationship between Trick and Lolly, and how they come to an understanding of each others lives is what carries this issue as the event that takes place at the end of this issue promises to alter their lives permanently. And that should make the rest of this series very entertaining for readers. Read Full Review
