Captain Black has been placed in charge of Asylum’s police force and given only one order by the mayor: bring the Vampire Slayer to justice. Now, Black is on the warpath. He’s using all of the tools at his disposal to hunt down his former partner, Detective Harper Halloway, and the Ninja Vampire, Toyo Yamamoto, who harbor a truth the world was forced to forget

Bleed Them Dry just keeps getting better and better. Eliot Rahal really has stand out writing, and it’s really easy to see. When a writer can juggle multiple titles involving a similar concept (like in this case, vampires), but keep each story unique and different, it’s really worth applauding. Rahal is one of the best there is, and Bleed Them Dry deserves a well adapted film.

Or at least I’d really like one because I would watch the hell out of it.

The art is still some of the most visually appealing stuff I’ve seen. The combination of Dike Ruan’s art and Miquel Muerto’s colors really fits the story perfectly, and has so much to take in. The lettering Andworld does is fantastic, juggling a character’s inner thoughts, a journal, and dialogue all at the same time and keeping them all different enough to keep readers from getting lost.
