Drawn to Mars by an ancient message from Cecile, a girl who could see the future, D arrives to find a colony that is little more than a blood farm. With Left Hand by his side, D sets out to cleanse Mars of the vampiric scourge!
The art was the main draw on this for me as I initially browsed the comic, but I was then drawn in by the story and the world, particularly as presented by the creative team of Easton and Broussard. I cannot speak to how this comic will work for people who have a previous familiarity with the Vampire Hunter D character, but it worked great for me as an introduction to the character and his world. I appreciate the fact that Stranger added a couple of pages at the back of the comic detailing the publication history of the character as well as the basic backstory of the character. This is a seemingly simple thing to add that a lot of comics skip. It added a lot of value for me and I really appreciate it. I'm definitely on board for this 5 issue series. The next issue is due out in January, and it has been added to my pull list! Read Full Review
I wish I had more to say about this issue. The story is pretty straightforward, but it's the narration that makes it so enjoyable. Otherwise, it's a well-handled adaptation that I'm happy to read more of. Hopefully, the second issue will be just as strong and continue the balance between D and our narrator. If so, then this story has a lot of potential. Read Full Review
