    Comics: The Gathering - lucstclair Mar 16, 2012

    This series just gets crazier with every issue. The tension is as thick as the blood thats spilled and the vamps look like something out of H.P Lovecrafts worst nightmare. Taken from the novel of the same name by Guillermo Del Toro & Chuck Hogan. Scripted by David Lapham (Crossed Vol. 3 : Psychopath) & illustrated by Mike Huddleston (The Coffin). Suggested for mature readers. From Dark Horse Comics. Read Full Review

    While I felt the series started out strong, it's come across a bit more unfocused in the last couple and this just continues it. While Eph is pretty much the lead, he's getting little time and what we're spending with others is a bit more chaotic. It has its point and it's helping to build the larger narrative, but there still feels like there isn't a driving force that's really moving the story forward. A lot of things are unfolding, and they're interesting and very bloody and violent, but it hasn't come together as a whole yet. I'm enjoying the book for what it's trying to do and the visual style of it all, but it's still lacking something to really move it tot he next level and get it moving in a bigger way.
