Jonathan Romero, aka "Dead Romeo," was the lead singer of the '80s rock band "The Dead Romeos." But that was before a mysterious set of circumstances turned him into a vampire and sent him straight to Hell. Now he's back on Earth and he has a difficult choice to make: Kill his true love and earn his permanent release from eternal damnation or protect her and burn for eternity. Either way, someone is going to die!It's vampires, romance, rock and dismemberment like you've never seen before! New writer Jesse Blaze Snider joins artist Ryan Benjamin for a bloodsucking good time in this all-new 6-issue miniseries.

    This new mystery series comes just after DC Comic's latest foray in the genre-- namely, "Simon Dark". There are a little too many similarities between the two titles: both have mysterious protagonists who live on the margins of society, protecting the innocent from unholy conspiracies. Even the titles are similar. Maybe next we will have "Mystery Melvin" or "Sherman O'Shadows". At least "Dead Romeo" reveals more about its hero and leaves enough hints in the first issue to have the audience wanting more. It also has a powerful, frightening cover. It is a pity the interior art did not match it-- even if they were done by the same person. Read Full Review
