After huge delay the fourth installment of Jonathan Ross and Tommy Lee Edwards’ debut comic was released a couple of weeks ago. I have loved the series so far, however, things have seemed to be moving quite slowly and the same reoccurring details seem to be brought back with each issue. The leadership battle in the Strigoli (the Vampires) tribe, for example, has been thrown around from character to character, even though we know who is actually directing the proverbial show.
Anyhow, for anyone who hasn’t been reading this series, I’ll let you know what you need to know, spoiler-free of course. In 1920s New York, Gangsters own the place. Until a strange new family moves into town and mob killings take place, that family is the Strigoli and they are in New York to claim the land that was once theirs. A young female reporter named Susie is trying to get a big scoop on what’s going on, but gets in deeper than she could have imagined and uncovers the strange truth of these killings. Meanwhile, an alien spaceship has crash landed and is found by a wounded Mob Boss, Eddie Falco, who gets healed and becomes half alien. Prin, the alien, decides to help Eddie take back the city from the Strigoli family. That is pretty much where we are up to at this point in the story, so read on to see what I thought of this issue.
