Review – Nosferatu


Bookmark and Share

There’s a lot I liked about Nosferatu.  95% of it is great, but there’s some issues I have with the ending.   Written by Chris Wolf and art by Justin Wayne, the story is inspired by the movie of the same name, this vampire tale is set in modern times with some interesting plots involving Homeland Security and a biological attack thrown in.

“Nosferatu” is a dark, edgy tale inspired by the film of the same name. This modern spin on the timeless horror story follows Tommy and her roommate Elle as the nefarious vampire Count Orlok draws them into his obsession with death and disease. Old-world magic combines with technology and terror alerts when Orlok, the Nosferatu, pays our shores a visit.

I liked it, a lot.  The characters are nice.  The fact that lesbians are thrust front and center is good as well.  It’s just the ending seemed a bit rushed and the attack seemed rushed as well.  The lead up is perfect, just my issue is there’s some plots are rushed.  Justice isn’t done and even with it clocking in at 112 pages it could of benefited from another 30 or 40 pages.

Overall, entertaining and worth checking out.  There’s tons of originality here and it’s very fun and it’s an original take on the vampire mythos.  Can we get an extended version?
