Two stories in this mini-series the first is Demon Father John's Pinwheel Blues with the artwork from Ben Templesmith and the story by Amber Benson which is about a young boy named Pinwheel who unwittingly gets sucked into the world of vampires.

I bought it for Ben Templesmith and in that I was right. Although Ashley Wood's art style is nice, I just didn't like the story, sadly.

Ben though, as always makes up for it all.
This is a tough one to rate, because while the stories were weak (one trite and one incomprehensible), they looked awesome.

The Templesmith half was the trite one, some vampire thing with kids. Probably the most interesting thing about the writing is that the writer played that one woman on Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Nice artwork from Templesmith, though - not my favorite, not totally over the top. I guess he dials it back a bit when he's drawing someone else's stuff?

Not so Ashley Wood, though. Hi
I only bought this 'cause Amber Benson wrote a story for it. Turns out it was the only decent thing about it.
Not for the squeamish or the prudish. :-)

Highly unusual book, rather creepy...
