Bad Blood


Main Plot Points:

  • Life was hard enough for Trick Croft as a college student and a cancer patient—then the vampires attacked and slaughtered his best friend.
  • Now Trick knows that his blood is poison to the bloodsuckers, and he will stop at nothing to eradicate them.


What We Thought:

  • Delved into the many current, diverse views of vampires, before presenting an altogether believable mythology that I really enjoyed uncovering over the course of the book.
  • The ending was almost too much pathos for me. I had an idea of what Vale was up to, but the amount of emotion I had invested in these characters took me by surprise
  • Loved the art and the watercolor style of the colors. I know the end page was just Tyler Crook showing off his coloring style, but I really kinda wanted it to be a teaser for a sequel.
  • The 10-page sketchbook is really cool, and the comments illuminating.


What It Includes:

  • Collects issues #1–#5 of the miniseries.
  • 10-page sketchbook



  • Written by Bram StokerAward winner Jonathan Maberry (V-Wars)
