Stephen King said this was "scary as hell." I think this is evidence that either A) he'll say anything for anyone, or B) he doesn't know what the hell he's talking about. this was thoroughly skippable, proving that apparently not all Brazilians are amazing comic guys.

A história não tem nada demais, bonitinha,m porém sem grandes coisas. Entretanto a coloração e a dinâmica de 3 desenhistas (os desenhos do Rafael Albuquerque são extremamente característicos, me sinto lendo vampiro americano por causa das expressões dos personagens) torna um quadrinho único.

Cute, if a bit cheesy. The Stephen King endorsement blurb on the cover is a serious head-scratcher, though: "scary as hell" ? Did you read this book Mr King?

Rafael Albuquerque's art is amazing as always, but the other two artists don't really hold up quite as well. Also I'm not sure where the story is going, or exactly what the significance of a whole lot of the book was. I'm curious enough to read the next volume. All in all, the best part is a foreword by Rafael Grampa, who is pretty much the man.

An interesting concept and a good story somewhat diminished by too many formal experiments. Some really emotional moments.

Not bad. I was particularly impressed with the art-it's amazing what they accomplished with only 2 colors! Cool style.

three stars for the story -- it was alright. four stars for the art, though, I liked the varying styles on display.
