Review: Night Club #4
Out this week from Image Comics
The vampire heroics continue in Night Club #4 from Image Comics.
This is already your favorite book. Do we even NEED to write this text anymore? Okay, well, discover the origin of the evil vampire Biker Gang and the truth behind the vampire who bit Danny back in issue one. What was he up to? It’s not what you think. Note: This book is half the price of less good ones!
by Mark Millar (Author), Matteo Scalera (Cover Art), Juanan Ramirez (Artist)
Hmmm! First, I have to say that the blurb doesn’t match up with what happens in this issue - I’m pretty sure what is promised above will happen in the next issue, and this issue does a grand job of building up to this point.
In this issue, we get the fallout of their heroics. There are some survivors, and I like how it all plays out with the emergency services. The first responders are doing their jobs but don’t know what they are dealing with. It is slightly comic, looking for a pulse from someone who is (un)dead. Of course, there is a degree of panic from both sides, and this makes for a fast-paced and entertaining issue as we lead up to the big reveal that we knew was coming.
There is plenty of action and vampire-type powers going on. I like how the restrictions come into play - with the sunlight and the lack of blood.
The art is highly entertaining - working in the daylight as well as in the darker aspects. I especially liked the catching fire and that last panel.
Next issue - things WILL be revealed!
