    Unleash The Fanboy - John McCubbin Mar 4, 2014

    Bad Blood has reached it's midpoint, and what a way to do so. The introduction of a new character as well as the mindset of the vampires has added a lot of intensity to this unique series, and I for one look forward to seeing what Maberry produces next. Read Full Review

    Bad Blood #3 gets the series back on track and is an exciting issue as the action picks up and a new character is introduced. The relationship between Trick and Lolly continues to be strong in the sense that it's consistent and therefore the developments are easy to follow and understand, and actually root for them to overcome despite their individual struggles. And with the conclusion of this issue it appears that things will be only better next issue. Read Full Review

    Florida Geek Scene - Peter Schmeiser Mar 5, 2014

    Jonathan Maberry I able to craft a story in real time that is able to bridge silly rules from hundreds of years ago, and introduce new elements like drug abuse and Chemo therapy. Using modern communication technology people can ask for help, spread warnings, and gather to fight against anything these days. Maberry has to walk a fine line to make sure the Vampires are actually a threat, and to keep a level playing field to make sure we don't lose interest. With Lolly's prototypical pity-party backstory almost causing me to lose interest, I was happy to see the vampire hunter make an appearance and give the story some direction. Read Full Review

    Bloody Disgusting - Bree Ogden Mar 6, 2014

    Maberry peppers in jokes about Van Helsing, Buffy, Angel, and Hellboy, among others. Adding a snarky meta element to the comic draws the reading in even more because, hey! we relate to those things. We watch those shows. We see those movies. Its material like that, combined with the reality of Tricks cancer and Lollys abusive childhood that keeps us firmly planted in the now, with present day pop culture and present day issuesdespite the fact that a fantastical vampire plot is woven throughout.

    Comic Bastards - Kimberly Gibson Mar 5, 2014

    Bad Blood has come to be one of my new favorite comics but this issue was a little lost on me. I mean the plot progressed well and I think I like were Bad Blood is going to take us; Maberry's storytelling is always spot on but I guess I found some things to be a bit problematic. For example, I like Lolly's character but I feel that she's not as deep as Maberry is trying to make her. Besides the vampire fetish, her backstory isn't very creative for reasons that I've talked about in other reviews. [TW] Let me just leave it at: the sexual violence perpetrated on female characters is not creative, it perpetuates rape culture and desensitizes a society, and it's just shitty for writers to constantly use it to define a character. If you are going to make a story about sexual violence make it a compelling survivor story not filler and put a fucking trigger warning on it. Read Full Review
