Review: DC vs. Vampires #8

DC vs. Vampires #8

I say it with every review of this series but, it might sound silly but DC vs. Vampires is so good. The short version, the vampire nation has had enough. With a new leader, they have slowly turned Earth’s heroes and villains and attacked. Now, they’ve taken over the world and all that’s left is a small group of heroes and villains to stop them. DC vs. Vampires #8 is that moment where the heroes that are left say their good-byes in what is sure to be various missions that some will die. And death is part of what makes this series so good.

Written by James Tynion IV and Matthew Rosenberg, DC vs. Vampires #8 is an issue of desperation and getting things rolling. It’s clear the odds are high. The resistance that remains is fractured in what to do next. There’s multiple missions and each is likely filled with doom and ending in death. But, even bigger, one character gets a beat down and an avenue is closed off.

DC vs. Vampires #8 focuses on Constantine, Green Arrow, Black Canary, Batgirl, and Supergirl. Each has a major role to play in what’s to come and each has very differing opinions in priority. Do they free the humans being used as a blood bank? Do they go after the Vampire King (Nightwing for those not paying attention)? Or do they get their heavy hitter back on the table? How about all of the above? But what’s interesting is Tynion and Rosenberg tease that the arrogance and “I’m right” show by the various groups may lead to their doom. One individual who has been doing his own thing suffers horribly as a major shoe drops. And that’s part of what’s fun with the series. You never know who may turn, who may die, what might happen. This is a series where anything and everything is on the table.

The art by Otto Schmidt and Daniele Di Nicuolo is fantastic as always. There’s a great style to it all and in this case there’s some moments that are brutal. But, through all of the despair and desperation there’s tender moments too. We get a touching moment between two individuals about expectations which another is a sexy night before both go off to war. Colors are handed by Schmidt and Pierluigi Casolino and lettering by Tom Napolitano. It’s fantastic as always and as fun as the story is, the art is right there with it. The visuals do a great job of keeping things dark, gritty, and desperate without being overwhelming.

DC vs. Vampires #8 is another fantastic issue. If you haven’t been reading the series, go out and start from the beginning. For those that have been reading, looks like it’s game on and things are about to get wild.
