I, Vampire #2 (Healthy Breakfast Spoilers)

A good issue, and one that makes #1 much better in retrospect. I liked the first issue, but not as much as most people, and I think that was down to the book leaving perhaps too much left unexplained, but this issue goes into more detail about Mary, Queen Of Blood and who she is and what her plans are. I like how Fialkov is re-interpreting Vampires here, and how he’s drawing parallels with other oppressed minorities who want to rise up against persecution. It’s not a perfect allegory with black people and homosexuals because, well, as far as I know those groups don’t want to kill me and drink my blood! Although some conservatives may think differently! Hah, a little satire for you there. Sorrentino’s art is decent again, but I do think it got a bit muddled at times, All Star Western sorted out it’s ‘brown problem’ with it’s second issue, but I, Vampire hasn’t yet.

I am enjoying this series, but while I think the art is good, it does have a tendency to get a bit TOO murky, I mean, at least 3 times this issue I had to double check to make sure it wasn't the protagonist who got beheaded.
