The Good Times Are Killing Me

I'm a nerdy girl with too much time on her hands, and too many books on her to-read pile.

Batman Bloodstorm SC

Batman: Bloodstorm - Doug Moench, Kelley Jones, John Beatty, Les Dorscheid, Dennis O'Neil This comic creeped me out in a good way. The art is powerful (much more so than in Batman/Dracula: Red Rain) and it enhances the plot. In Bloodstorm, we meet a Batman that has been turned into a vampire and that is determined to finish those who share his curse, while fighting the thirst of blood that threatens to consume him. It's so interesting to see how he tries to abide by the same rules that governed him when he was alive, not noticing that he's breaking them with every breath. That being said, I also have to say that I found catwoman's interaction with Batman to be a bit too cheesy, and lacking the love/hate relationship that I enjoy so much in them. The Joker, on the other hand, was perfect.
