I initially bemoaned the fact that, due to the comic taking place out of continuity, the high stakes (pun unintentional), surprise character deaths and even vampire reveals made DC vs Vampires feel a little bit pointless.
I’ll admit that was short-sighted of me; though the series has had its ups and downs, on the whole it’s been a pretty damn good read – and, shackled from the chains of continuity, it’s been able to go to some pretty batshit (again, unintentional pun) crazy places.
The Bat family are escaping the destruction of their home – with two of the most powerful vampires in pursuit. Meanwhile, Batgirl has her hands full alongside half of the Suicide Squad, with the other half of Task Force X sprouting fangs and needing to be dealt with permanently. A revelation about who the King of the Vampires is also causes a bit of an upset, to say the least.
Despite the issues I had with the art in the last comic, it was still a pretty fun read. I didn’t have the same problems with the art this time around, so hopefully that was just a blip – on the whole, issue six is a lot more consistent in terms of its visuals.
The twists and unforeseen events keep on coming – and this issue really builds up to one hell of an ending to close off the first half of the series. It’s a lot of fun – and it’s pretty damn unpredictable too, which is extremely refreshing.
