Oh, how I miss this series. From the start of DC’s New 52, Joshua Fialkov and Andrea Sorrentino’s “I, Vampire” bled with furious creativity and a passion for vampire folklore. Fialkov’s love for the undead blood-suckers was ripe from the first issue, and it seems DC allowed him free reign to do whatever he wanted with the title. Unfortunately, the book never found the audience it deserved. Alas, it is no more. Nonetheless, DC is releasing Volume 3 this week and we’ve got the exclusive preview below. READ MORE
Joshua Fialkov’s new creator owned series ‘The Bunker’ launched earlier this month on Comixology. If you haven’t had the pleasure of reading the debut issue, I urge you to check it out. The series is about a group of friends who find a mysterious underground bunker which holds all of their futures.
Failkov’s story never stops building momentum. This comic will be one of the most talked about books this year. The story deals with fate, friendship, and the apocalypse but does so in new and exciting ways.
Sadly we here at Bloody Disgusting missed the opportunity to review this book when it was released. Instead, here is a broad discussion of the book’s themes, ideas, and constructs. We won’t miss ‘The Bunker’ next month. READ MORE
There’s more editorial troubles from DC Comics this week as Rich Johnston at Bleeding Cool reports that Joshua Hale Fialkov has already called the quits on both of the Green Lantern books he was set to be writing, “Green Lantern Corps” and “Red Lanterns”. They have also confirmed that Andy Diggle has walked away from “Action Comics”. READ MORE
We’ve been huge advocates for Joshua Hale Fialkov and Andrea Sorrentino’s I, Vampire since the beginning of the New 52. Fialkov proved that vampires have a place in the DC Universe, brilliantly showcasing how various superheroes would react to bloodsuckers. “I, Vampire Vol. 2: Rise Of The Vampires” hit shops and book stores yesterday, and it’s well worth your time (see our review here). Below, you can check out an exclusive preview, courtesy of your pals at DC Comics. READ MORE
Readers should definitely be sinking their teeth into I, Vampire Vol. 2: Rise Of The Vampires. Andrea Sorrentino’s illustrations brings to life a unique and horrifying vision that could only come from writer Joshua Hale Fialkov. Because of its clever writing and fantastic artwork, this is one of the best titles to have come out of the New 52. READ MORE
We knew this would happen sooner or later, though since the first trade paperback was a bestseller, we were hoping DC would hold of on cancelations for at least another year. Josh Fialkov and Andrea Sorrentino’s I, Vampire ends with issue #19. READ MORE
I’ve been saying this for a while, Josh Fialkov’s I, Vampire is one of the best titles at DC right now. It’s fun, intelligent, fresh, and explores so much vampire mythology that even the most die-hard vamp lovers will appreciate it. Fialkov loves vampires and horror, and he writes his heart into every issue. With Andrew now trying to raise a deadly army of vampires, things are bound to get hairy. Issue #14 drops today, check the preview after the break. READ MORE
Joshua Fialkov turns the tables in I, Vampire #13, completely swapping the roles of protagonist and antagonist. In the aftermath of the zombie vs. vampires war, Andrew Bennett looks to build an evil army for the ages, and the only one willing to step in his way is ex-lover Mary, Queen of Blood. “I, Vampire” is a delightful take on vampirism, having its foundations set in traditional vampire lore. Of DC’s Dark books, “I, Vampire” continuously comes out on top, and I imagine things will only get crazier as the series continues into another year.
“I, Vampire” #13 is a perfect jumping on point and below, you can check out our exclusive preview. The issue drops on October 24th, 2012. READ MORE
Readers will be thirsting for more after they get their hands on I, Vampire Vol. 1: Tainted Love. Whether Joshua Hale Fialkov writes a romantically dramatic or action-packed scene, Andrea Sorrentino’s illustrations are always excellently rendered to compliment the story. Though I have not read any of the original “I, Vampire” issues, there is such an appreciation to the source material from J.M. DeMatteis and Tim Sutton that comes right off the pages. The clever writing and darkly captivating artwork make ‘I, Vampire’ one of the hidden gems of DC’s New 52. This is a vampire comic that ranks up there with the best of them. READ MORE
