Another great chapter in one of the years best books. There is a great plot being laid out in front of us with some genuine uneasy scenarios, you have visceral art and a great soup of a book. If I were to give you one bit of advice while reading this book, dont read it in the dark. Read Full Review
Yikes. Things are heating up as newly formed vamps are popping up all over NYC. The tension really starts to build up as this issue serves up plenty of blood & gore for all horror fans like myself. Theres supposedly a movie in the works, but I think a tv series would be the way to go, on AMC or HBO. Taken from the novel of the same name by Guillermo Del Toro & Chuck Hogan. Scripted by David Lapham (Stray Bullets) & illustrated by Mike Huddleston (The Coffin). Suggested for mature readers. From Dark Horse Comics. Read Full Review
While this issue feels a little off compared to the first two, it's still moving the storyline forward and almost showing us a montage style series of events that are going on. I can't help but to view this series in a theatrical way with how it's designed and the general way it reads. That's certainly not a knock on it as it has a good flow overall and the story is unfolding at a good pace. It's less character driven in a way this time but part of that is because it's not doing as much exposition either like it did in the first two which also had to deal with more setup and basic introductions. I felt a bit less connected to events this time around mostly because the book is viewed through Eph's eyes overall and he's a smaller player in this and has less in the way of discovery and revelations. The Strain has a lot to offer and is definitely keeping me interested in seeing where it's all going to go and if it'll go even bigger and further off the rails. Read Full Review
