VINDICATION #1

Written by MD Marie

THE DEAL: On the day Turn Washington is released from prison after a wrongful conviction is overturned, one of his former jurors winds up dead – and it’s exactly what Detective Christopher was hoping for. Which one is the cat and which the mouse, however, is still up for debate.

THE GOOD: Art and colours are wonderful in this day-in-a-life mystery; it reminds me of Sean Philips’ work on Ed Brubaker’s various series, particularly Fatale and Kill Or Be Killed, with its dialogue close-ups and emphasis on the flow of action.

Letters by Adam Wollet

THE DEAL: A group of sexy supernaturals with a whole mess of mystical weapons slice a path of gore through geriatrics in the closest place to Hell on Earth: Florida.

Guys, I wish I was being hyperbolic here (actually I don’t), but I’m not. In fact, I’m being polite about what I just read – but was it a problem?

THE GOOD: NO! IT IS AWESOME! This is my first exposure to Vampblade (which is connected to a much larger universe, from what I’ve gathered), so like any decent comic critic, I flipped to the first page with my skeptic knob cranked to 11...
