    V-Wars has grabbed hold of me and has not let go since the first shot was fired.  There's a deeper story here and Maberry appears to just be scraping the service.  I can't wait to see what else is coming down the line, as these first couple issues have provided a full background to both sides of the war.

    Rarely does the second issue outdo the first, but V-Wars #2 does it and does it well. A very well written story, particularly because there's no action, but ever so interesting. Read Full Review

    V-Wars #2 is a great addition to the story but does it reveal too much. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Samantha Roehrig May 21, 2014

    All and all, my mind finally absorbed the issue, and it just didn't agree with me. The story didn't seem unique at all and lost all its wow factor from the first issue. I may see what happens next, but for a new series to hit such a sour spot with me so soon isn't a good sign. I didn't mind the jumping of characters, as with these widespread panic, it is nice to see all perspectives. I hope that maybe this storyline was just missing for me, and when we move on I can enjoy V Wars as much as I did with the first issue. Read Full Review

    V-Wars remains, for now, a series with some interesting ideas but a haphazard execution. Read Full Review

    I really like the series so far with the exception of one panel in issue #2. What was the intent on the "gay, interracial, vampire" couple? Were you inferring that the God of the human church was an "a**hole"? Are you saying that all of the "Bloods" are tolerant to "homosexuals" whether or not they are vampires? Does this have anything to to with the falling sales?
