Part One: A Slayer takes on a werewolf and the action is intense. The art is amazing as it depicts the vicious werewolf and Slayer. His attitude this Slayer is fun he enjoys what he does and is good at it. Sterling Cross is no ordinary being. He does not look human even. He is definitely something more.
Wolvenheart is a monster-hunting society and Van Helsing leads them and Tesla is also a part of it. Sterling Cross of course is their best slayer.
As we get a glimpse of the Queen in Black you can just feel the evil and danger coming from her. Sterling Cross here too we see he is a huge butt hole.
Part Two: The Queen in Black makes her move against Sterling. The Queen in Black turns out to be a familiar character from history and also one monstrous creature of evil. Things in this world have changed and evil is rising.
Part Three: Here we learn something of Sterling’s beginnings. We also see so many famous people from myth and reality. Dracula is illustrated like an animal.
Part Four: This chapter starts out with a beautifully rendered drawing of a sailing ship.
The villains are truly evil. The Queens each have their own versions of crazy. Dorian, is a calm cool man. Together they are so deadly.
Sterling and Sabina try to get help in their fight against evil. Sterling does care for Sabina and would even fight a mutated raving bull for her.
Part Five: The match-ups here are stunning you will marvel at who is working with whom. It is the ultimate in good vs evil.
Why are the Dimension Keys so important? Why does everyone want them? Yes, they have to do with controlling the timeline but how do they plan to use them exactly?
Part Six: This comic has everything you could want vampires, werewolves, Frankenstein’s Monter, Royalty, a psychic, and a scientist, plus of course a certain vampire slayer. With all these horror icons in one place, this is a Victorian hit the likes of which you are unlikely to ever see again.
Part Seven: So much action and fighting and all beautifully illustrated. Just when you think you have it figured out well time travel can be a tricky thing.
The book will keep you entrapped until the end and have you wanting more. You will feel fear and then hope as Sterling Cross is like no other. You do not want to miss this horror, action, thriller that just keeps giving. All the characters are so perfectly brought to life.
