Death Ship wasn't terrible or anything, but I didn't really like it. It wasn't a remarkable or even memorable story, it got off to a really slow start, and the whole vampire thing has been done a million times before.

This book fails the rape test. In fact it fails it in both ways possible, on about page three no less.

The first way to fail is to portray a rape scene in a sexy or alluring way. Very early on, there's a rape scene that takes up about a third of the page and is drawn is such a sexy way that if you were to change the dialog bubble to say something other than a protestation, it would just be an erotic scene. Fail.

The second way to fail is for the rape survivor to fall in love with or desire her/his

I thought it was pretty good but maybe could have been a bit better. I wasn't always able to follow the story, and after reading the section about how the story was constructed at the end I realized I'd missed a few things. The idea was pretty cool, and the art was good. The front and back covers were just amazing.

The artwork, while almost fitting to the tone of the story, was too murky; mere impressions of outlines, shadowy faces lacking details.
I understand that the story itself is dark and murky but that artwork confused me more often than not, as characters were over similar in looks with few distinguishing marks/details. I like for the art to further the story, not hinder it.
(But I guess, it is easier to swallow some of the more grisly bits when done in undefined hazyness.)
But the cover and "art gall

Interesting adaptation of a brief scene that has been depicted in all the Dracula tellings, about the ship Demeter from Russia/Transylvania/Poland that travels across the water to deliver cargo to England. As the voyage takes place there is almost a mutiny, crew members slowly disappear, and in the end it seems as though the captain of the ship has gone mad after tying his hands to the wheel and ensuring the boat docks in England. This novel follows the brief period where Dracula was able to ...more

I didn't like the art work and the story, while an interesting idea, never really came together for me. Oh well.

This was a fascinating (and chilling) look aboard the last fateful voyage of the Demeter and it's doomed crew. Loved the artwork.

Great job fleshing out the sea faring portion Bram Stoker's novel into a full fledged story.
