Haunted by the catastrophe that tore his city apart ten years ago, Coast Guard veteran Virgil Lafleur struggles daily with the hardships of a post-Katrina New Orleans. But when his younger brother's murder leads him into a vortex of intrigue, corruption, and violence, Virgil becomes obsessed with bringing the killers to justice and exposing the horrific secret hiding beneath the Mississippi. From screenwriter Mark Landry and artist extraordinaire Ashley Marie Witter comes this visceral revenge thriller that merges the real-world hopes and horrors of a post-disaster community with an engaging thread of political corruption, class divide, and blood-curdling terror!

    Altogether, this tale already reminds me so much of In the Garden of Good and Evil, but has a flavor all its own. The story by Mark Landry, unfolds at a steady pace but one that I already feel will more than satisfy the reader. The art by Ashley Witter is really the star here, as it feels so visceral and definitely will have me looking for more of her work. Overall, an excellent beginning to a promising story, supported by extraordinary illustrations, makes for a killer debut. Read Full Review

    I don't read many Titan books, but when I do, they never disappoint. Blood Thirsty is an amazing book, with action, gore, and a whole lot of mystery. The fun has just begun, so make sure to keep up and see what happens next! Read Full Review

    I really wanted to like this issue. I liked the concept and the of course the art, but the narration and dialogue make it pretty damn impossible to enjoy. It's getting a mid-range score from me, but that's all because of the art. Hell on its own I give the art a perfect score, but that's not how we review around here so it gets what it gets. It's only a five issue mini-series so I'll continue to check it out, but I have a feeling not much is going to change with the narration in the next four issues. Read Full Review
