It’s come down to this: an all-out attack on the vampires’ city stronghold, with the fate of the planet hanging in the balance.

Broken Moon #3

Story: Steve Niles

In dire need of an army, werewolves and humans searched for Frankenstein—and found him… in a city alongside scores of other patchwork people he’s sewn up along the way. But this mad, broken doctor is only interested in experimenting—quite possibly on Rantz’s and Avery’s friends—and it will take a dangerous journey to the Vampire City to convince him that the destruction of the world is at hand.

Review: Broken Moon #1

Broken Moon #1 coverAfter explosions on the moon cause the earth’s tides to wipe out most of humanity and civilization, monsters of legend rise to take their place. Broken Moon opens in a massive city of vampires who have taken to polluting the skies to block out the danger of the sun. A human spy, Avery, escapes the city with valuable information about the vampires’ plans and reconvenes with her small tribe—few of whom escape with their lives following a confrontation between the vampires and a pack of werewolves.

Steve Niles and vampires, go together like peanut butter and jelly. In contrast to his other his other well known works 30 days of Night, this book has werewolves as well. While the vampires in this may have a heavy a more thought out system of ruling their cities. Using humans more like cattle, and factory workers than just slaughtering them like madman. However, there is some human resistance who live outside of the vampire cities. Even the werewolves have various stages of their change. Which defiantly works with the story, giving the story a classical blend of monsters.

The art by Nat Jones is dark, yet realistic. For the most part there is very little use of color. Most of the world is done as various shades of black, and grey with only a little red and oranges. However there is some demonstrations of color as the story progresses. It injects some color into a very dark world. The series begins a bit more colorful, with those reds and oranges, but progresses to a gray color palette, playing more with the idea that humans literally break the moon, hence the title Broken Moon.

This is a new take on the classic monsters we all grew up with.

Trapped in a snow bound cabin somewhere outside Black Falls, Canada, a group of terrified survivors must battle more than the blizzard outside to keep their pulses. A maniacal, gun-toting mountain man, an undead Mountie, and a mob of shambling, rotting, reanimated corpses all want inside. As Vietnam-era draft cards burn, horror mounts…and blood will stain the snow.
