Captain Kronos Vampire Hunter #4

   This issue wraps up the first story arc for Captain Kronos, and it's been a fun ride.

   The story revolves around his battle against a small army of vampires, with only the help of his fellow Vampire Hunters, the beautiful and deadly Carla and the cunning Grost.

   It brings the Captain face-to-face with the monstrous Slake, who commands vampires that show (almost) no typical weaknesses (sunlight, crosses, etc).

   But what seems like a straightforward story has a few surprises to share, and lots of action and adventure along the way.

   With a terrific script by Dan Abnett and powerful, moody artwork by Tom Mandrake (skillfully channelling Gene Colan here), this series has been a blast to read.

   It manages to channel the best elements of comics horror in the '70s and '80s into an edge-of-your-seat adventure.

   Highly recommended!

Grade: A
