Stranded at the top of the world, Liesel Van Helsing works to uncover the source of centuries old vampire clan high in the frozen heights of the Himalayas. Newly allied with Chinese agent Wu Shen Hao, the greatest vampire hunter of them all faces a horde of the undead while a bestial lycanthrope stalks the mountain passes. Chuck Dixon (BANE: Conquest) brings all the blood, bullets and brutality you’re looking for as this horror epic builds toward its violent climax.
The battle against the vampires in the frozen mountains continues. There is a fair amount of action here, and we get a new character added to the board. He says that he isn’t welcome in the monastery, is this because he is the wolf-man? maybe? The Werewolf does make a rather violent appearance at the end, and it looks like we will have the showdown with Van Helsing and the Werewolf in the next issue. There is a little politics here, with the Chinese agent getting a frosty reception from the monks and the reasoning is sound from Van Helsing too!.
I’m still enjoying the battles in the snow and the colour palette works really well – even in the monastery, which is rich in golds, yellows and reds.
There’s still a lot more going on behind the scenes – not just with the Werewolf, but also with the guiding mind/leader of the vampires.
