Barbara Gordon and Harley Quinn make it to the inner sanctum of the vampires – but can they do what they need to in order to stop the Vampire King, Dick Grayson? Meanwhile, Constantine’s last ditch plan to save the world hits a serious snag and Oliver Queen’s humans rally together for one last attempt at thinning out the vampire hordes.

For a good chunk of this climactic issue, there’s a more measured, dialogue based scene that’s brilliantly tense and uses the characters to perfection. The action scenes are still less clear in terms of their storytelling, but it’s a definite improvement on the previous few issues, which were an absolute mess and incredibly hard to follow.

DC vs Vampires ends with a slightly optimistic cliffhanger, but given how inconsistent the series has been, I’m not sure that I’d be particularly interested in seeing the story continue.

It’s a real shame, as the out of continuity premise – which meant that anyone was in danger and anything could happen – was great to begin with. It suffered from a visual style that often obscured what was going on, as well as a cast that was far too bloated to keep track of.

Overall, DC vs Vampires was too busy and perhaps too ambitious for its own good overall, though it wasn’t without bright spots.
