    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Aug 10, 2023

    With the basic premise of the series, a fully established priest has a long way to go with it. There is an impossibly large amount of complexity in what he is setting up in the first issue. There are a lot of ways that this could go wrong. However, Priest knows precisely what he's doing from the first issue. There isn't much of a margin of error on this sort of thing. You're dealing with two very powerful and prevalent vampires. It's a daunting task for any author. Read Full Review

    Well I wasn’t expecting to much from this issue and to be honest it was a mix bag of great, good and a bit predictable. Firstly the great is Dracula that is my kind of being straight out of brilliant writing. The problem seems to be as others have said, if you haven’t had 2 or 3 years of the writer’s stories about Ella then you’re left a bit in the dark which for a mini series is a shame. Someone needs to remind Priest about new reader jumping on points????
