    Geek Dad

    This series has successfully managed to come out of the shadows of the megahit DCeased, despite both being focused on turning famous DC characters into horror villains. The main difference is that this book doesn’t turn them into generic slobbering monstersit turns them into serial killer cult members who wear your loved one’s face and prey upon your trust in them. It adds a whole new sense of horror to the whole thing that works very well.

    As the series flies into its third act, DC vs. Vampires #9 reminds why this is one of the most fun titles DC is putting on stands.

    DC vs. Vampires #9 is a great chapter juggling the badassery of Green Arrow, the sea voyage of Supergirl, and the attempts of the heroes to enter a bordered-up Gotham.

    This issue was a necessary change in course that finally revealed some cracks in the vampires invulnerable armor. Theres still time left for the surviving heroes to turn the tide as this issue helps get the series back on track.

    The Comicbook Dispatch

    If you’re a huge Oliver Queen fan, DC Vs. Vampires #9 will most certainly be your jam. He’s got swagger, attitude, and an almost John Wick appeal. Mix those characteristics with that of an Old Man Hawkeye veneer, and Green Arrow fans will leave DC Vs. Vampires #9 wanting an ongoing of this version of Oliver. Yet, even with the rousing display by Oliver Queen, the rest of the issue was just ok. Not bad by any stretch… just ok.

    Couple this weeks tale with some average renderings that just didnt deliver like last month and I feel readers will see an average issue with a few peak moments. If youre already in on DC Vs. Vampires, hang in there and go pick it up. However, if you’re looking to hop on board, this issue wouldnt be the one to entice you unless you are a Green Arrow fan!

    While this guilty pleasure series might have been a bit long in the tooth when it came to getting its engines firing, the series has picked up speed as its moved along. With the world now completely overrun by super-powered creatures of the night, the ragtag band of resistance fighters are taking things head-on when it comes to taking back their world. Tynion, Rosenberg, and Schmidt wear their love of all things DC Comics on their sleeve with this horror spin-off, making use of lesser-known characters as well as giving fan-favorites some wildly interesting makeovers. Perhaps Green Arrow is the big stand-out here, becoming an adept vampire hunter with a terrifying look to match. If you’re looking for a series to get you into the Halloween spirit, DC Vs. Vampires has hit a point where it’s a worthy comic in this regard.

    Supergirl Comic Box Commentary

    Stymied, Batgirl wonders how she’ll ever get to Nightwing. But then an unlikely ally arrives – a vampire Damian ready to help out. Comics are supposed to entertain and outside of the inanity of Green Arrow’s plan, this book was a fun book to read. A lot of it is buoyed by the dynamic art of Schmidt. But I like Supergirl in this book. I really liked the Mera reveal. And the Gotham storyline sort of crackles.

    Although the Batgirl plot is going nowhere fast, DC Vs. Vampires #9 is a good comic book story. It has really good artwork and really interesting characters. In spite of my enjoyment of the issue, I remain critical of the overall story direction of the series.
