Dying Breath: 4.5 out of 5
Rose Black: Demon Seed is an action packed thrill ride that combines horror and intense drama like I have not seen before. The artwork in this book is GORE-Geous. Carpenter’s cast is near perfect page after page. A big highlight to me was his representation of the vampires themselves. Giving them what I would consider more of a spider face, with very large fangs, they easily stand out in the crowded genre. I also want to throw mention to colorist Derek Dow, because his work on these pages was outstanding. While the artwork is great, the story is what really won me over here. Murphy and Campbell did a fantastic job on this book. The pacing is great, and there is no such thing as a dull moment with this book. The dialogue is sharp, and the whole package comes off so well. I definitely think that this book falls into the line of something like the new Vampirella and the Anita Blake books. Mixing military with vampires could only work if done right, and this creative team nailed it. When you see this book it doesn’t look to overwhelming, but it seriously took me 2 hours to read it. It is packed with story. This is a great read that looks beautiful, and I am proud to have siting on my shelf.
