With Baron Cinder and his lieutenants kept occupied by the mother of all diversions, the team attempts a daring raid on the Blood Farm to retrieve the one person who can bring sunlight back to the world. However, they have not reckoned on the terrifying presence of the Baron's vampire knights-familiar faces whose blades are every bit as bloodthirsty as they are. And in the backup, we learn the sad fate of the King of Cities, Jack Hawksmoor!

    It can be a little hard to follow at times due to the fast pace, but the last page has a shocking cliffhanger. Read Full Review

    DC Vs. Vampires is more often not, hit or miss. Issue #4 is a hit, but not by much. The highlights include the artwork, the use of certain characters, and overall tone. The plot is still doing a handstand on the side of the Hoover dam, and has the structure of a standard zombie flick, but like a man doing a handstand on the side of the Hoover dam: it's hanging in there. In the penultimate issue, the suicide mission against "Baron Cinder will need to push things to a satisfying climax. Read Full Review

    All-Out War has become a cause for cleverness in combining vampire lore with DC superheroes and, in this regard, it largely succeeds. Read Full Review

    The main story has gotten strong. First time both the main story and the backup are pretty good.

    Mary Marvel is by far the best part in this story, I'm actually invested in her part. Midnighter and Starfire were fun as well.

    The backup is excellent as usual.

    Another great issue, once again I must point out the consistency in pretty much everything. The humor continues to be spot on, I think it is safe to affirm that the jokes are the highlight of this series. Alongside with the plot that just moves at the right pace. And last but not least, the action. That fight between Midnighter and Prometheus... Now that's why I read comics. And that also serves to encapsulate everything this series gets right. This is a short one since I'm late and probably everyone already gave this a read, regardless of that, another recommendation.

    The main story is getting better, but it feels very decompressed, hope it can stick the landing and be a stronger read when put together. The artwork also flip-flops between absolutely breathtaking amazing pages and pages that are pretty messy in terms of panel reading.

    While the action was fast-paced and fun in this issue, the writing was a bit scattered. There were some plot-holes that kind of bothered e too, but nothing that killed the story for me.

    Gets a 4.0 thanks to the backup which isn't great but is readable.

    As for the main story, no comic has ever left me feeling this stupid. The artwork leaves me lost, the plot and dialog confused. It all goes right over my head. I have a feeling everything is actually quite simple, but obscured due to art I find difficult to understand despite the use of shading and some tones, and dialog that I think is trying to be clever but comes off to me as oblique.

    I keep buying this to stick it out, as I have good will based on enjoying the main series, but this is the last book I read each week, and I approach it with a big sigh, like taking bitter medicine, knowing that each issue is likely to baffle me more than the prior one. more

    It’s rare to have a comic that is this much of an unreadable mess!
