Reviews – Van Helsing: Sword Of Heaven & Hellchild: Blood Money

Some thoughts on the final part of Van Helsing’s latest adventure and the first part of Hellchild’s new adventure!

Van Helsing: Sword Of Heaven #6

Trapped in a palace of the dead, the immortal and malignant Prine Sawar thinks he’ll hold Liesel captive for the rest of her life, but nobody puts the legendary vampire killer in the corner. With the help of an unlikely ally, Liesel Van Helsing must escape this madhouse of horror before she loses her mind or even her life!

Writer: Chuck Dixon

 Julius Abrera

Van Helsing’s battle against the demon finishes here, and the fabled sword does do its part in the battle. This was quite a logical conclusion to the ending of the story, and I enjoyed the way it was all laid out!
There were some bits which were interesting – including the true death of Dara and the conclusion.
The vampire is an interesting addition, with some more teasing of vampire lore – I liked the way this was throughout the series.
This was a good series and now we see what’s next!

Hellchild: Blood Money #1

Angelica Blackstone, A.K.A. “Hellchild”, is the half-vampire daughter of the Greek god, Hades, and currently a gun-for-hire. She spends her days offering her unique strength and abilities to the highest bidder, but after her next gig, she may come to realize that this new job might be more than she signed up for.

Writer: Ralph Tedesco

After some short cameos, Hellchild is back for a new mini series.
Interestingly enough, Angelica doesn’t have too much action herself in this issue. That is all done by the mob she is surely going to come up against.
It’s a slower setup than most, but serves well to see the stakes of the operation she is up against – it also shows what she thinks about the matters.
Looking after the son of a businessman seems boring enough, but this son has annoyed the wrong people, and it looks like they are on his tail. They are violent and sadistic, and it looks like there are going to be more problems on the way.
As I say, this was a slow start for the story, but has enough bangs to keep you interested!
