Dracula, Motherf**ker

Amazing neonoir expressionistic art by Henderson (Unbeatable Squirrel Girl) is unfortunately fatally drained of lifeblood by undernourished characters and the uneven narrative of de Campi (Archie vs. Predator). Still, die-hard Dracula fans and enthusiasts of the award-winning creators may want to give this a try.

Blackwood: Vol. 1: The Mourning After

With this second in an ongoing series, veteran scribe Dorkin (Beasts of Burden) unleashes his trademark humor and honest humanity in a spellbinding horror adventure, while Veronica and Andy Fish’s (Sabrina the Teenage Witch: Something Wicked) evocative and impressionistic art uses a blacklight color scheme that perfectly complements the carnival atmosphere and graveyard thrills.

Ghosted in L.A. Vol. 2

Filled with likable, sensitive characters, this spookily romantic tale from Grace (Iceman), combined with Keenan’s (Jem and the Holograms) luxurious and expressive art, makes this second in an ongoing series a scrumptious, séance-like delight.

The Silent Invasion. Vol. 3: The Abductions

Following up their previous two volumes in the series (Red Shadows and The Great Fear), Cherkas and Hancock continue their exploration of Cold War–era sf paranoia with just the right amount of rich film noir sensibility combined with a striking artistic grafting of midcentury modern cartooning with expressively sinewy line work. Recommended for collections with the earlier books in the series.

Jughead: The Hunger vs. Vampironica

Unexpected humor complements this cracking good horror adventure yarn from Tieri (Absolute Carnage) and Eisma (Riverdale. Vol. 1), which unites multiple strands of the Archie multiverse of characters with subtle nods to the long-developed continuity of the Archie books.
