The Lost Girls

The Blood Belles are out and ready to play, and by play I mean kill… kill everyone. The hunters are all together to witness this unleashing of evil; now they must find their way out of the cave and into the sunlight. Survival must come before trying to hatch any sort of plan of attack on these evil ladies. On their road to the exit, Sam brings out his inner badass. He kills Andi, the burned bloodsucker, therefore releasing the anklebitters from the vamp curse. Now Star, Michael, Sam, and the brother hurry to get themselves and these kids the hell out of there. At the top Billy waits for them. But she has been scorned by the Belles so instead of a threat she heads a warning. Kill Agnes Underwood before Anges kills Lucy Emerson.

The Confessional

This has gone from a pleasant nod to nostalgia to a really great book. Now I will say this, if Lucy dies, I RIOT! Okay, I’m done. My heart did break a little at Niko’s death. There’s a part of me that’s really hoping somehow he survived, which I doubt with the whole being impaled thing. Horror has to be one of my favorite genres and Tim Seeley is doing it justice! Each issue the stakes get a little higher and the anticipation of what is to come sky rockets. I wish we could go back in time to the lovely 80’s just to be able to turn this arc into an actual sequel to the movie. I hope somewhere Cory Fieldman is reading this book with a big smile on his face.  The character development is happening so smoothly that you almost don’t see it. But one of the biggest reason we become fans of characters is watching them grow. I see Sam, who lives in his brother’s shadow, unsure of himself, gaining more confidence and growing into a certified badass. Michael, who has for a long time struggled with the evil inside him is gaining better control over it. Star is still a little sketchy for me, but we’ll see what happens with her. The art is fantastic. I love the cooler tones and quick line strokes giving it this 80’s feel. If I could buy a thousand copies of this book and start throwing it at people on the street yelling “READ THIS” I would. I love it that much!
