“Vampires Versus Robots”
Zombies are played out, vampires are now a joke, and robots are old news. IDW believes none of this and brings us the ultimate and unlikeliest match up yet, vampires versus robots. I saw this book sitting on the shelf at Cosmic Comics!, and knew I immediately knew I had to have it. Have these two ever clashed before? I have no idea, but Steve Niles with a lot of help from menton3 (has to be a douche btw) bring these two horror titans head to head in a battle for humanities blood.
Transfusion is a post-apocalyptic world where the nights are brazenly cold and the days are scorching hot, leaving the world almost uninhabitable. The humans who have survived are constantly hunted by the abominations they created not more than four years earlier. The robots are fueled by blood, somehow, it really doesn’t explain how, and I don’t know why you would give your lifeblood to something you know would eventually kill you or be your all powerful overlord. Nomadic vampires thirst for this same lifeblood and are in an all out war with the robots for what little blood is left on the desolate planet.
Steve Niles doesn’t have to write much for this book to be utterly amazing. This isn’t a book that just has vampires and robots punching each other, this is a book full of experienced hunters tracking down and decimating what small groups of humans remain. It’s menton3′s art (writing his name makes me a little sick, like really? Use your real name, c’mon) that really makes this book. The art is like a nightmare happening right in front of you. The pages are gray and foggy, gigantic robots come out of nowhere and disappear in the same fog, death happens quickly and without warning, making the feeling of helplessness even more apparent. The book is down right frightening.
Back to the Farm.
