Jamie Madrox is back with yet another Dark Horse Comics review. This time around he tackles the vampire series everyone is talking about, Guillermo del Toro’s “The Strain” Volume 1 as adapted by David Lapham and Mike Huddleston.
From Jamie Madrox:
The third comic title I chose to read and review from Dark Horse Books was The Strain story by Guillermo Del Toro and Chuck Hogan, Script by David Lapham with art by Mike Huddleston.
A virus has been unleashed on the people of Manhattan that seems to be turning into a vampiric invasion with plans on taking over the world.
A team of four down to earth and reasonably believable characters comprised of Dr. Ephraim Goodweather, Dr. Nora Martinez, Abraham Stetrakian, and Vasiliy Fet plan to put a stop to (the Master) and his ultimate goal of a new vampire world.
A plan easier said than accomplished but it appears that despite the Master’s alliances who have created a conspiracy to shroud this invasion, Goodweather and company may find allies of their own to aid them in the battle with the Master and his ever growing children.
Adapted from the New York Times Bestselling Trilogy by Del Toro & Hogan, David Lapham and Mike Huddleston successfully bring The Strain to comic book readers.
Artist Mike Huddleston’s artwork is really cool, and his images of the Vampires are creepy and disturbing especially their stingers with the lung sacks hanging out of their mouths. The next generation of the vampire.
Pick-up ‘The Strain’ Volume 1 for $8.99 from the Dark Horse digital store.
