Review: Blood & Lust: The Life & Undeath of Judd Glenny #2
40 years ago the first American vampire became the unlikely savior to the children of Boggy Depot and forged an unlikely agreement with the town. They leave him and his family alone, and he’ll save any children from whatever lives in the swamp. But now Judd needs saving, and his grandkids only hope is their mother. Only problem is she’s more dangerous than the swamp.
I’m really shocked the cover of Blood & Lust: The Life & Undeath of Judd Glenny #2 doesn’t say, guest starring the swamp creature. While the focus is on Judd trying to save his grandchildren there is a focus on the history between him and whatever lives in the swamp. Yet I’m curious as to what the swamp creature is since all it reveals is a being covered in vines and not much more.
Darkness seems to carry throughout the issue in both the art and the story. The team manages to show some of Judd’s life in a flashback sequence which fills some things in. The art manages to blend past and present in superb fashion. There’s little difference between them as both times lead to the swamp.
