30 Days of Night: Dark Days by Steve Niles and Ben Templesmith

Good art, poor storytelling. The original 30 Days of Night book was much stronger than this sequel and resulted in a no less scary motion picture.

Nothing to report, folks, really – just 120 pages of vampire driven chewing gum – but again, Ben Templesmith's sloppy, raw drawing style fits it perfectly.

So sad very few decent comic books are available for kindle. Yet. Oh well.


American Vampire Vol. 1 by Scott Snyder, Rafael Albuquerque and Stephen King

What pushed Stephen King to co-script a comic book, I don't know. This ain't the Shining, if you ask me.

For my taste, the book is mediocre – not because of art, but due to clumsy text and action. Winner of the Eisner award? Hm. Eisner wouldn't have liked it if he were still alive.

Too little to write home about, really. Roger out.
