'I don't date vampires. I kill them.'My name is Anita Blake. Vampires call me the Executioner. What I call them isn't repeatable. Ever since the Supreme Court granted the undead equal rights, most people think vampires are just ordinary folks with fangs. I know better. I've seen their victims. I carry the scars ... But now a serial killer is murdering vampires - and the most powerful bloodsucker in town wants me to find the killer.

Reviews

Suckers for vampires will find Marvel's adaptation a satisfying rendering of the Hamilton novel. Numerous details from the book turn up faithfully: Anita's stuffed penguins, Jean-Claude's blue eyes, and the same feel of overheated rottenness. Someone is killing St. Louis vampires, which is murder since vampires are now legal U.S. citizens, and the vamps want Anita to find the killer. No friend of fangs, Anita raises the dead for a living and kills criminal vampires as a sideline, but loyalty to a friend convinces her to take the case. Now she's in for wererats, ghoul attacks, vampire "freak" (swinger) parties, and too many encounters with nymphet vampire queen Nikolaos, plus a parade of gorgeous men (some human, some vampire), all trying too hard to be friendly. Interwoven for intellectuals are fascinating pseudoanthropological details about what a modern society with "real" vampires, ghouls, zombies, and werebeings might be like. The color artwork blends standard DC Comics/Marvel realism with a shojo manga swirl, especially with the bishonen men. No nudity or explicitness, but the heavy sexual vibe and later direction of the Anita Blake stories make this best for adult collections.-M.C. Copyright 2007 Reed Business Information.
