    In perfect synchronization with Sorrentino's art is Fialkov's script, juicy as a freshly dead corpse. The way he makes the story so personal tugs on the reader's heart strings, yet when he reveals that the stakes are far bigger than just the fate of two vampire lovers, it is enough to make the blood rush to your head. It is strange that this book can accurately be defined as a vampire horror romance, especially when Twilight has lowered the quality of the genre by skimping on the blood and instead floundering in emotional woes. Fialkov cuts the sparkles and shows what is really behind such tortured relationships: manipulation, rage, yearning, backstabbing, and lust. Read Full Review

    Overall, I am still a fan of this book and will continue to pick it up. However, unless it starts to widen its range of story, the book will probably not be a hit with the fans. For now, just admire the mesmerizing art, like I do. That alone is worth the price of admission. Read Full Review

    As I noted, this is a heavy vampire horror book but set squarely amidst the DCU. The actions of the first two issues aren't going to remain unnoticed and it'll be interesting to see how Fialkov incorporates the tights and capes into the blood and teeth while still retaining it's chill. While I was two steps away from being done with vampires (they're as overexposed as zombies) I, Vampire has found a way to keep me interested, in spite of its covers. Read Full Review

    Some of the re-launched comics at DC have felt like they're moving a little too slowly, but in the case of "I, Vampire" a slower pace has worked well for these opening two issues. I feel like we're getting a good grasp on a decidedly different corner of the DC Universe, and that Fialkov and Sorrentino have used their pages well. "I, Vampire" would fit comfortably in the Vertigo line, but I must admit that a small attraction to the comic is wondering just how the heck Fialkov will make this connect with its neighbors. Whatever the reason, though, this is an inviting take on vampires, taking them back to their roots. For one of the few new voices to the DC re-launch, Fialkov has wasted no time in making himself an important part of the line. So long as Fialkov and Sorrentino turn out comics like this, I know I'll be thirsting for more. Read Full Review
