    I was really jazzed to find this one at a dollar store seeing as how I enjoyed the first one. I love the art style and the Vladimir Tod books are very fun and light hearted, kind of like Buffy which is why I really appreciated the references thrown in there. The beginning of this one did feel a bit slower and it had been a while since I read the first one so the first half was kind of confusing but then everything started moving fast like bang bang bang! And the whole Vlads friend being a hunter I was really jazzed to find this one at a dollar store seeing as how I enjoyed the first one.

    Had many typos It was hard to keep track of what character said what and so many typos. Other than that it followed the story pretty well.

    [Possible small spoiler ahead] Art is still good, the colors good, anatomy [for the most part] good. This book follows the same story as in the second novel of the series, so the story is very good. My lower rating is because we're facing the same issue of comic building as we did in the first graphic novelization. It's not that the way they did this comic is bad necessarily. It's the fact that the buildup of the story feels very rushed. There aren't any proper transitions between the time frames.

It's the fact that the buildup of the story feels very rushed. There aren't any proper transitions between the time frames. You don't have to separate things by chapter but you still should separate them with something to show us that we're changing areas, or time, or who the focus is now. One of the biggest things no-no's in comic making is bad transitions or no transitions. The worst offense of this occurred in this comic. Vlad reads his uncles newest letter and then later that night he has a nightmare. Now in between the end of the letter reading and the nightmare should be a transition, even a simple one, even if it's the most basic transition like fading off, there needs to be SOMETHING. Instead we get on the left hand page Vlad finishing the letter, on the right hand page we get the entirety of the nightmare. That's not ok, it's too incoherent, it's too all over the place. Those two scenes, while they do follow each other, should not be facing each other, and only be on 2 pages. It's just bad book planning. This is why we thumbnail an outline of how it should go, to make sure that we never put 2 scenes facing each other that are going to confuse the reader. It's the best process for finding out where transitions are needed, since it will let you see which scenes are gunna touch each other [by touching I mean one scene will be end on the left page and the other starts on the right page]. If you can't place a transition between those 2 pages, stretching the scene on the left page a little more so that it ends on the right page, thus letting the next scene start on the next left page is an adequate way to handle moving from one scene to another without placing an actual transition in. It's so easy, and by stretching a scene you can make it more dynamic, you can add tension, you can add emotion. Instead we're just rushed right on through and it just makes me sad. We could have had an amazing adventure with so many details, so much tension, it could just be so much more than it is. And I wish it was. I figure the rushed story telling may be a reason why they stopped at 2 graphic editions instead of doing the full series. Maybe we could reboot it someday, give it a second chance. I still believe this can be an awesome comic.

    This is one of my Dollar Tree finds. I have heard of the novels, but never read them. I figured a $1 graphic would be a decent introduction to the characters and the overall story arc with out spoiling anything too major due to how graphics tend to compact the story and at times, leave out key plot points. I am glad this was only a $1 as I was not impressed with the artwork of Julia Laud. It seems that only boys have short hair and girls have long hair, not to mention the fact that I thought the This is one of my Dollar Tree finds. I have heard of the novels, but never read them. I figured a $1 graphic would be a decent introduction to the characters and the overall story arc with out spoiling anything too major due to how graphics tend to compact the story and at times, leave out key plot points. I am glad this was only a $1 as I was not impressed with the artwork of Julia Laud. It seems that only boys have short hair and girls have long hair, not to mention the fact that I thought the character of Joss was a female, even with the short hair. Features vary very little from character to character, with hair color being the main distinguishing quality. Backgrounds are plain, lacking detail. The colors flex with the overall tone of the story which was nice, and at least the lines are clean. However, I feel that the artwork mad a confusing story even more so. This is my first run-in with Heather Brewer and it was through the adaptive storytelling of Tony Lee. Having never read the first graphic or any of the novels, I wasn't sure how I would be dumped into the story and that was a risk that I was willing to take for a buck. It wasn't so bad, except that I had a bit of trouble knowing who the characters were. I thought at first that perhaps Henry and Vlad were cousins, but then Joss is Henry's cousin. I realize you can have different sets of cousins, but I thought that Henry and Vlad lived together, but then Henry has an older brother that we only see at school... so yeah, I am a little lost. I didn't like the speak bubbles. At times, I feel that they point to the wrong person, as in NOT the person that is talking. Some of the dialogue was hard to follow, but for the most part well-written, if that makes sense. I am intrigued enough by the overall plot line to consider checking out the full-length novels, but I am not rushing out to the local bookstore or even Amazon to buy them. I believe that this is the last of the graphics that is available right now, but even if more are released, I don't think that I will bother with reading them.

    I really enjoyed the Vladamir Tod series and I was pleasantly surprised to find this at Dollar Tree. I liked reading about these characters again and the illustrated version of Vlad is pretty much how I pictured him. The art is nice and the story is the same as the paperback book, with some stuff thrown in like "That's right. So and so did this." Those moments seemed out of place and kind of cheesy, but I've seen comic books use that method of storytelling too. Overall, it was a nice read.

    Vladimir Tod is a charming young man, for a vampire. While I haven't read the books, I really enjoy the graphic novels. The illustrations are beautiful, and the character expressions add more levity to the story. In this installment, Vlad learns valuable vampire skills and begins to understand his significance among vampires.

    Le voy a poner un cuatro porque no tengo idea de si continuaran publicando la novela gráfica xD Sería una pena que no. Es verdad que en la adaptación se pierden algunos detalles, pero la ilustración es muy buena y la línea de la historia es exactamente la misma. A mí me encanta cómo interpretaron a los personajes. Quiero leer el tercer libro y la tercera novela gráfica :3

    It's really good, though there are a couple things that were missing but I understand why. I would really like to see us get the 3rd book make into one of these.
