Life Sucks

by Jessica Abel, Gabe Soria and Warren Pleece

This story tells the tale of Dave Miller, vampire and night time manager of the Night Stop convenience store. He’s stuck in this dead end job by his boss (and maker) and living off expired blood since he can’t stomach the idea of biting people.  The only thing he looks forward to is seeing Rosa, a goth girl he has been admiring from afar for some time. Life gets much more complicated for Dave, though, when Rosa actually walks into his store and his life.

The art in this novel really conveys the emotions of the characters. The story is interesting and fun. It reminded me of the old adage that the grass is always greener on the other side.

The Unknown

Story by Mark Waid

Art by Minck Oosterveer

Catherine Allingham is know for her ability to solve the unsolvable mysteries, yet her intelligence cannot save her from the tumor in her brain. With six months to live, Cat continues to solve other people’s mysteries while trying to solve her own: what will happen to her after she dies?

I loved the art in this novel. As for the story, it read like a mix between Sherlock Holmes and the X-Files.
