    Similarities aside, the issue is well presented. The barren, snow-swept setting of the film is swapped for a different sort of rural, Midwestern desolation. A conflict involving a pushy real estate developer could serve to differentiate Crossroads from its sequel more, but at the moment the villain of the piece is a bit too two-dimensional. Andreyko and artist Patric Reynolds are able to channel the creepy tone of the film, though the comic never packs any particularly scary moments. Hearing Abby feeding from behind a wall is not the same as seeing her pounce on her prey in live-action. Still, Reynolds, art is very dark and moody, and also much more detailed than one might expect from a licensed comic. What Let Me In: Crossroads lacks in originality it makes up for in presentation.

    As a first issue, it would have been nice to get dropped into the tale in media res. Show us exactly what sort of death dealers we are reading about. Instead, this issue spins its wheels setting up external factors effectively but not in the direction that we want from this title. We don't get into the minds of the characters, we don't get a sense of anything too new here, and it's a shame because these characters are interesting. Instead, this just feels like a pretty generic vampire tale, thinly written, and focused in the wrong direction. It does what it does well, but it's not doing much that matches what the comic should.
