Superman and Batman Vs. Vampires and Werewolves Graphic Novel

Over the past couple of days I have been sitting around wondering what sort of “Halloweeney” post I could put up here. Then I remembered that a couple of weeks ago I picked up the Superman and Batman vs. Vampires and Werewolves graphic novel.

Now if you pick this up expecting this to be the next “killing Joke” or “V for Vendetta” than you will be sorely disappointed. This will most likely not go down in the history of comics as an incredible story that changed or added to the ongoing stories of Batman, Superman or the DC universe.  If you pick this up because you want to see Batman and Superman beat on Vampires and Werewolves than you most certainly will not disappointed. I’ll confess that is exactly why I picked this up.

The art is gritty and the story moves along at the pace of an action packed horror movie. The writer manages to spin a yarn that combines gothic horror with Super heroics which end up being just plain old fashioned good fun.

Of course as the book progresses the World’s Finest ends up with more to worry about than just Vampires and Werewolves.  They have to worry about a crazy mad scientist and at one point a giant lovecraftian demon. As I said before it is all good fun.

What I liked most about this book was that it made use of several guest stars. Wonder Women gets into a fist fight with a vampire and Nightwing tangles with a werewolf. Also making an appearence are the Demon and Green Arrow. The latters wooden arrows are paticularly handy when dispatching Vampire hordes.

By the way the majority of the Vampires in this book are viscious creatures. None of that twilight sparkly gaynes!

I’ll give this a solid 7 out of 10.

    Woot! Glad to hear that the vampires are actually monsters and not angst-ridden teens or wine-swilling debutantes pondering the loneliness and isolation of immortality.
