Big Breasted Vampire Death by Nik Havert & Renatus
Go ahead, just try to not judge a book by its cover after seeing that. I dare you. As a reviewer, it's a little tricky to tackle something like this, as reasoned analysis has very little place next to enormous breasts, so I'll try to simplify this for potential buyers of this book. Is there nudity? Yes, plenty of it, and some sex too. Hm. Come to think of it, that's probably the only question for a whole lot of people. OK, for whoever is still reading, how about this one: is there a good story? Surprisingly, yes. Well, at least mostly. It isn't going to win any awards, that's for sure, but I found myself surprised by a few swerves here and there and loved the ending. Overall, there's not a whole lot going on. The comic is about four female vampires with very large breasts who are traveling to see a country music band. I know, it ruined some vampire stereotypes for me too. Three brothers are also driving to see the show, and they happen upon a massacre from the ladies along the way. It was a little odd how their constant murdering was met with a general "meh" from the guys once they met, but maybe the giant breasts had something to do with that lenient reaction. Anyway, one of the vampires left a memento from an old lover at the scene, one of the guys picks it up, and a budding romance is born. The rest of the book involves them all getting to the concert, plenty of fights along the way, and the possible death of one of the characters. I say "possible" not to be vague and avoid spoilers but simply because I don't know. Things didn't look good for this character, but then there was a distant shot of them all together before the comic ended, so who knows. Overall? Overall I can't believe anybody is still reading this review, as your mind was probably made up one way or the other pretty early on. It's occasionally fun and smart, but it's also occasionally trite and silly, and not necessarily in a good way. It's a decent book, if you were judging it as a regular book, but nothing that will set the world on fire, even if it is in its second printing already.
