Review - Van Helsing: From The Depths
A new one-shot story featuring Van Helsing from Zenescope Entertainment
Zenescope Entertainment has a new Van Helsing story out this week. What emerges from the water in Van Helsing: From The Depths.
In the shadows of Liesel’s past lurk secrets tied to the legacy of the Van Helsing family. Born from the work of her father, a deadly new adversary rises from depths of the murky waters of the River Thames and only the famed vampire-hunter has the ability to return this twisted creature to the darkness it came from!

Well, that starts out with a suitably classic horror beginning. And, as someone who has been to that area of Dartford, I appreciate the setting. The lighting and colours here work really well, and the light looks just like we have been getting as I write this review.
We return to Van Helsing and what looks like a simple shopping trip - it does lead to something more for her though. It’s kind of mundane for Van Helsing, but it’s good to see her getting back to what she is more well-known for.
This isn’t the main reason why Van Helsing is here though. It leads back to some of her previous adventures and works out well. I like the way that it is leading to this point. The tech and the weapons have had an upgrade here.
What follows is a deeper and more interesting story than I expected. It’s not just a monster-of-the-week for Van Helsing. There is something more to this. It is not only a case of the threat for Van Helsing (and other humans) but there is something more personal for her too. I like the way that this was built up and it has some excellent aspects to it.
It looks like we have a way forward for the character as she now has a new quest by the end of this story.
