Continuing on from Dead Space, Spreading the Disease follows FBI agent Michael Henson as he endeavours against all sorts of carnage to prove the existence of vampires. Transferred from Washington to Alabama he is contacted by a mysterious benefactor and he goes in search of the female vampire responsible for the space shuttle disaster.
I wasn't a big fan of Dead Space and the series as a whole is on a downward spiral, more so without the artwork of Ben Templesmith and some of the reading was diff...more

i'll give this one four stars for the concept, and not the actual storytelling. the plot was fantastic, as good as could have been expected as the succession of the series and the progression, but fell flat in the finished version. also, the art by sandoval is completely worthless. who told you to draw all of your female characters with inflated foreheads and distended arms so that they looked like joseph merrick? however, the art by sanchez is first rate.
Well, this edition covers the idea of vampirism spreading under the guise of religion. Agent Henson is trying to discover the priest Gant's plan to spread the disease throughout the general populace. A strange 'friend' keeps calling Henson, and helping him find where Gant will strike next... and covering it up. So, what's going on? Why not read the volume?

While the ideas were fairly fresh, I felt that it was a bit too easy. Vampires in space? That's a fun concept. Vampires in Alaska? Why not? Th...more

I don't know what to think of this story, or of this series ... Like in almost all 30DON there are good ideas (in this case, a very good idea) but the storytelling is just bad, add to this that in this book I mostly couldn't stand the art. Is not that the art is bad, but, there are only a few panels that I liked ...

The story talks about religion fanatics, and the turn in this book is pretty interesting, but, like I just wrote, the storytelling is not so good ...

... And the dialogues, wow, there...more
The plot and artwork both leave much to be desired, especially compared to the Niles/Templesmith stuff earlier in the series. Sometimes too much of a good thing can be bad.
The 30 Days crew tackles the spread of the vampirism under the notions of religion. In search of answers to the "vampire in space" questions of the previous volume, Agent Henson is finding out that no one wants to listen; even his government is out to shut down this investigation. In order to uncover the truth, Henson must drop into the lion's den and hope to come out alive.
UGH. with the original writers now NOT writing, these are getting quite tedious. The artist switched from Alex Sanchez - who was not too bad to Tony Sandoval midway through which messed a lot with the continuity. It's not that I don't like his work.... they are both great illustrators in different ways, but eh. I yearn for Ben Templesmith to return. And Steve Niles.
Wow! The art work in this graphic novel was just god-awful - I couldn't tell the humans from the vamps!
The story was a good idea, but poorly executed. The dialogue read like something out of a ghost-written celebrity memoir.
Very weak compared to the first one. The art wasn't my favorite either. Decent story though. Almost a three star because of it, but didn't quite make up for it.
Blah, getting boring.
