Could there ever be such thing as a vampire virus? Sounds like the stuff of sci-fi and horror all wrapped up in one, and that's what makes Devil such an interesting story. Answers unfold about the government program that created this nasty disease of superhuman power and hunger for blood in the second frantic issue. Who is this Mariko creature? Is she a victim, or is she proud of her new, superevolved existence? And can the government really contain the beautiful monster they've created?

Manga artist Torajiro Kishi (Maka-Maka) and blockbuster anime studio Madhouse (Trigun, Paprika, Ninja Scroll) love comics. So much so that they've decided to publish an original, Western-style comic exclusively with Dark Horse! Enter Devil, a thrilling, sci-fi take on the vampire genre.

    In Devil's first issue, the dialogue was poor, but the fighting was plentiful. Devil #2 drops the gunplay (but not the gore) to focus almost exclusively on the broken writing. However, the second half of this four issue run promises a ballet of kinetic action and explosions. If you want the necessary context behind the ensuing chaos, you're going to have to tough it out and give this one a read, buddy. Read Full Review
