Vampire the Masquerade : Nosferatu
And yes, like EverquestÖ huh? Oh. Yeah.
Everquest DOES have a Tabletop RPG version, if you are only familiar with the PC series of games you probably didnít know that (I didnít know that until recently). Itís under the Sword & Sorcery banner of games, if youíre wondering where to find them.
And like Vampire the Masquerade, both have comics. Overpriced short comics in this prestige format square bound print or whatever. The only difference being Vampire was done by Moonstone in 2002 while Everquest was a better known title from DC/Wildstorm (in, oddly enough, 2002).
But weíre not talking Everquest here, weíre talking Vampire.
Nosferatu is about a beauty pagent winner named Athena Ortiz.
She tries to be beautiful, and is beautifulÖ even though she is hiding a very very ugly secret. Her family, you see, is quite dysfunctional to an extreme. So is it any wonder she ends up spending time with the vampiric undead, forming lifelong undead bondsÖ getting her own personal demons out of her inner closet to exorcise themÖ then sheís turned and gets back at daddy dearest. Yeah.
The artwork is nice, and the story is actually engaging as you read about this gal and ultimately her inner demons which drive her to become a creature of the night.
If you are not a fan of the series I donít see you being ďturnedĒ by this comic, and at a price of $7 for only so few pages I really donít see anyone but either fans of White Wolf, Vampire the Masquerade, or of vampires in general getting this.
On the bright side I have to dig deeper into Moonstone.
I always did want to review Kolchak : The Night Stalker (hope itís based on the original series and not the recent revamp which I never did like very much).
Oh, and if you arenít into vampires or Werewolf the Apocalypse youíll be pleased to learn Moonstone has a license for a modern revamp of the classic ďPhantomĒ (you know, as in the character who was portrayed by Billy Zane in that live action movie if I remember right), classic monsters of old in ďMoonstone MonstersĒ (like the Mummy for instance), and a ďpulpĒ title in ďNoir FictionĒ.
See what youíre missing out on by not looking outside of the box and at smaller companies wares? HmmÖ that seems to be the theme of this weekís reviews in a sense, looking outside of the box (and the traditional major companies of comics and manga slash AmeriManga). As for this book? Letís say it gets a 4 out of 5 with a warning label attached. Itís good, but if you are not a major fan of either the RPG or the overall concept of vampires then you are probably not the audience this book is out to appeal to.
If you are? Then enjoy, people, enjoy.
