The second and final part of ‘The Nocturnes’ story, and it delivers some exciting moments. The action was strong, and I particularly liked how Snyder explained that the ‘Werewolves’ were merely another strain of Vampire. Or more precisely, the actual species is ‘abominus’ and under that umbrella are all sorts of monsters, mainly Vampires, but also these Werewolves and even Zombies. It’s great how this title takes such a scientific approach to a subject that is normally much more mystical and magical. It looks like this story will be running straight on to the next one, as we revisit Pearl right at the end, which is a good thing, AV stories are always better when either Pearl or Skinner are involved. Riccardo Burchielli on art was a bonus too, I was a huge fan of DMZ so it’s good to see him working on another high-quality Vertigo series.
