Reviews: Unbound, Monster Planet & Van Helsing Vs Dracula’s Daughter

Some thoughts on three of this weeks comics from Zenescope Entertainment – Unbound #2, Monster Planet #2 and Van Helsing Vs Dracula’s Daughter #4

Unbound #2

Lukas re-enters the Ether to hunt down Marna, the woman who betrayed him at Cain’s compound. But when he finds her, Lukas realizes he’s no match for her now and stares certain death in the face. Meanwhile the creepy masked killer takes yet another victim, but begins to explore more disturbing ways of murdering his captors. Something is very wrong inside the Ether, and soon it may be too late to put a stop to the masked killer’s sadistic motives.

We get some real-world information about the game and how it works, there is also some interesting comments on how safe the game is to play. Obviously we know that there is something going on!
X seems to have some control over the game, and things are only going to get worse. He can stop people from exiting the game. So how this links to the real world side is going to be interesting. This issue started off slower, in the real world, but the game world moved pretty quick!

Monster Planet #2

Having formed and uneasy alliance with the vampire lord, Xavier Drake, and the monsters that follow him, Blair Spencer and her human team prepare to escort them to their base where they can use Drake’s blood to create a cure for the virus. But an unexpected attack by Blood Hunters destroys their transport leaving them stranded in Chicago and hundreds of miles from their destination. With the clock ticking Blair and Xavier must figure out a way to bring their teams together in order survive both the blood thirsty creatures created by the virus, and a new enemy that may be more even more deadly.

The team up between the humans and the monsters is pretty tense, but at the moment they have a common cause. it has a nice throwback to the Escape From Monster Island series. There is a nice tight fight sequence in this issue, and it’s this that causes the two groups to team up. The rest of the issue builds up the tension between the two groups, while throwing more problems in their path. The ending gives us more problems for them, and I have a feeling we’re going to have a Mad Max style run!

Van Helsing Vs Dracula’s Daughter #4

Helsing finally comes face-to-face with Dracula’s Daughter and learns the truth behind her nemesis mysterious origins.  Origins that will shake Van Helsing and her universe down to its core.  Don’t miss this action packed issue brought to you by the fan favorite creative team from Revenge of Wonderland, writer Raven Gregory and artist Allan Otero.

This issue is building us up with information for the final issue! I like the way the flashbacks are framed, and there are some unknowns left for us to find! The flashbacks are well told (and a little bloody) but it makes some sense.
We’ve also got the serum as a third party, I have a feeling that this isn’t going to end well, with some being smuggled along for the ride.
A good informative issue!
