As the Justice League Dark team faces the end of all magic and perhaps life itself only one man can challenge the dark force known as Cain: Andrew Bennett. He's back from the dead, but whose side is he on? Regardless of the answer, nothing will be the same for either series when "Rise of the Vampires" is over!

    Fialkov delves out the narrative without a hitch. He is still crossing over with Justice League Dark, but he uses those characters to support and flesh out his immensely strong I, Vampire cast. Even better, despite all of the world-threatening vampire army business, he manages to bring it back to the love story. It is an atypical love story based off of power, lust, and violence, but hey, this is from the guy who wrote Echoes. Read Full Review

    Enjoyable, with plenty of intriguing plotlines to follow, but the issue itself doesn't quite provide the big, splashy ending you expected from this much-hyped story arc. Read Full Review

    "I, Vampire" #9 is going to be quite an issue to watch. The book's leaping off in a new direction and "Rise of the Vampires" brought that about quite nicely. If you've been thinking about trying, "I, Vampire" for yourself, it's on the verge of providing you that perfect opening for a new direction. Read Full Review

    It's that foothold that gives me hope for I, Vampire, even if this chapter is as simple, brutal and bloodless as the undead. The crossover with Justice League Dark isn't putting a Band-Aid on a gunshot wound, but like treating cancer with a pair of crutches " inclusion into the superhero-centric DCU is not the problem this book is struggling with. Identity is. Here's hoping that this new kind of vampire will show us some new and exciting ways to operate. Read Full Review

    Well, here I was hoping this x-over would make JLD better. In actuality, this x-over made I, Vampire worse! How annoying is that! This series was rolling along nicely until the x-over with JLD, let's hope the Rise of the Vampires was just a minor bump in the road and now that it's finished this series will get back on it's roll of solid comics.
