Synopsis : Anita Blake is back in the second volume of Marvel’s comic adaptation of Laurell K. Hamilton’s bestselling series of novels! What would you do for a million dollars? Would you resurrect a two-and-one-half-century old corpse? Harold Gaynor poses just that question to Animator and part-time vampire hunter, Anita Blake… Plus, some crime scenes are even too horrible for a vampire slayer, and the worse they are, the more questions they raise.
Review : This time I start with the first volume, and I can tell it was better! One more time, we get into the story very quickly. The meeting with the voodoo priestess is very impressive and we feel all the horror and the feelings that inspire the machinations about the zombies. The dead are very well realized, but I confess the last ones are a little too much green. Shouldn’t they be gray instead?
Otherwise I think the story follows the book very well, and we find Anita in an investigation about some horrific murders. But we can also add Jean Claude, a billionaire man determined to hire Anita even if she doesn’t want it. The end of the comic concludes with the gift of the priestess, and I’m curious to assist to the first meeting between Anita and Jean Claude, I think it will be epic!
This first volume is as good as the others I’ve read. Anita is always the same and I really liked to see her penguins collection.
