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

Not for the squeamish or the prudish. :-)
