Four pages from I, VAMPIRE 2 (plus three from issue 1)...

Flashback to forty-five minutes ago, when "mommy" Mary bids silent good-bye to her lover/arch-enemy Andrew Bennett, as she prepares to begin her war against humanity.

This looks like a beautiful series. And I usually detest vampires, feeling as if there's nothing more to be written about them.

Clearly, I was wrong.

Again, another great series that annoys me with the "They're right behind me, aren't they?" joke.

It's one of those rule-of-plot things--no matter how sensitive the character, there's time when much weaker, dumber, clumsier characters will be able to sneak up on them. Otherwise, not much of a challenge for him to notice the set-up.

I do think I'll love this series. Goddammit DC, first you pull me in with the promise of refined continuity, then you piss me off with too many bad titles, then you bankrupt me with too many good titles, and pretty soon I think you might pull the whole "don't call me, I'll call you" and I totally won't hear from you ever again.

Hang on, might've confused a comic-book publisher with a one-night stand.

I get that. Its just there are far more ways to do that than using a unfunny, overused cliche to do it. It really isn't hard to illustrate that people can be snuck up on. This is almost always used as a way to try and inject a little bit of humor into the situation. Except it doesn't, because its used to an absurd extent.

This is more Jae Lee than Jae Lee is, these days. Gorgeous stuff, though, and I actually like the work on putting a seemingly well-written female villain out there, which is something.

I also think that now was the best time to put out a series like this, that establishes vampires as something of a threat in the DCU. Otherwise it would've seemed about as silly as the way Marvel switched out Dracula's appearance and launched that dull story that gave us Jubilee's new status quo.

Looks like another one to add to the trade pile along with Animal Man and others.

Exactly what I was thinking to myself!

I dig the If only I could bring myself not hate Mary with every fiber of my being. For some reason I just can't stand her.

Isn't that the sign on a successful villain?

When a villain takes me out of a story no...I have my reasons for it but I find it hard to take her seriously as a villain.

There's a difference between disliking a villain for being villainous, and disliking a villain because they're just bloody annoying.

Sunlight wasn't actually a lethal vampire weakness until the movie "Nosferatu." Until then sunlight was a minor annoyance at best. It's generally a Hollywood/American thing.

In the original book Dracula, Drac could walk around in broad day light with no problems. He just didn't have any of his powers, and was bound to his human form.

As alexanderlucard pointed out it wasn't really until the silent film Nosferatu that sunlight was considered a lethal thing for vampires.

I love that these Vampires are more Dracula-style than the modern-style.

Seeing vampires turn into animals, mist, and other people is pretty cool.

Really? We're aping WANTED now? Really? (that's at least how I read that line)

And no, poor, deluded Mary, the one-against-many is not a coward. He is legend/icon/champion. You are so going to lose if you think this will work. He'll kick every single minion's ass, and then you'll mew you were "just having fun," and then he'll take your head off.

Honestly, Mary's personality and blithe attitude to all the destruction her actions cause just make me hate her. She's like Quentin fucking Quire.

And yes, the art is lovely.
