I’m not sure whether it was a great idea to do a fairly lengthy origin flashback for a character that was going to die 2 pages later, but this was still a strong issue. The art from Jordi Bernet was of course excellent, but we got some more of Snyder’s slowly developing world and back-story, included some more hints about the nature and origins of the ‘Vassals Of The Morning Star’, is there a place called Morning Star then? Or did she just mishear? I’m not sure about the Skinner/Book stuff, it seems to be pretty aimless.

I haven't read this issue so I don't have the context, but 'The Morningstar' usually refers to Lucifer, as he was the lightbringer and brightest of all stars before the war in heaven.

The organisation that hunts Vampires in this book is 'The Vassals Of The Morning Star'.

That's interesting. It suggests that they may not be the as pure of motive as the more traditional Vampire Hunters. The name is pretty explicit in suggesting that they owe their allegiance to Satan.

Scott Snyder FB'd me this message

please pass along to Niam that I appreciate the read for AV 20 - sorry it didn't do it for him. Telling you, I think we get tougher reviews from you guys than anywhere.
