Review: Vampblade #3
As the chaotic new world around comic shop employee turned other-dimensional vampire slayer, Vampblade, starts to come into focus, things continue to be both crazy-weird and stupid-lethal for our blade-brandishing bad girl! And when you’re a 90s comic book character come to life, meeting your “creator” can be a bit meta too…
Vampblade, the perfect balance of cleavage, violence, and humor. Writer Jason Martin continues the story as some of the backstory of Vampblade’s chain blades are revealed. The issue also reveals the backstory of the space vampire worm… things. It’s a strange origin, but nothing in this comic is normal.
The artwork by Winston Young is solid, and slightly cartoon-ish at times. Yet risqué at times, but the covers should tell the readers that. Which is odd but, workable mix as the plot drives this issue. Even the meta moments are well drawn, blending in with the rest of the issue well.
