    Horror DNA - Ricardo Serrano Denis Jun 1, 2022

    Blood Stained Teeth #1 is another great vampire comic in what can be argued as a new golden age of vampire comics. It holds its own alongside books like Killadelphia, Out, and Redneck. Ward and Reynolds are out to tinker with old traditions, to mess around with formulas and come up with new configurations. The creative team behind Blood Stained Teeth is quite simply dead set on tapping into veins that are bursting with fresh plasma, and they're not afraid to leave a dark and bloody mess behind.

    Sequential Planet - Danilo To May 2, 2022

    This comic stuck with me. Not only because of the plot, the characters or the artwork but how well it is so much better than the sum of his parts. I highly recommend this, especially for fans of Vampire the Masquerade who need to fill the void of a cool vampire secret clan. Read Full Review

    The Comicbook Dispatch - kcscribbles Apr 27, 2022

    The best part of the artwork is the way the city is drawn throughout the story.  The art style works here, because it really shows how far this city has fallen, with massive ugly neon lights seeming to blend with the grime of the streets to form a character in itself. Read Full Review

    Really loving the art here. Reminds me of Vertigo's good old days.
    The story here is promising. The pop art aesthetics bodes well for a pop story like this. Even the title of the book sounds like album name.
    Can't say I have a full feel for the world and the rich vampire folk being hateful towards another of their kind is an interesting take on the mythos, though it does remind me of the vampire races from American Vampire.
    Let's see where this goes.

    Vampires have been a high form of entertainment over the last century, BST is another entry to try and leave a bite in a heavily saturated field.

    As always, the art is my first step to look at. I wasn't too keen upon the first few pages but as the issue went on, I found the contrast to really start hitting home, very bright colours competing against each other with shadows creating a dark mood around them. It is something that the more I saw, the more I appreciated. The pencils are very rough, but that makes it all pop that much more.

    As for the story... It is another vampire story. Sloane is a bit of singleton from the looks of the issue but he's way of making money has left a bad taste with the pure bloods. He has be more
