Pinocchio: Vampire Slayer

This isn’t the Disney Pinocchio…
When I tell people about this graphic novel, they say “heh, what’s he do, use his nose?”
And I say yes!
This simple premise works by the art and the story telling. Gepetto is dead, killed by vampires, Pinocchio (with some help) hunts them. He tells a lie and his nose grows, breaking it off he stabs the vampires.
In this story Pinocchio has grown older, more mature – from his previously documented adventures. Some of those are referenced here.

The story moves on in a fast pace, which made the 126 pages fly by!
Although the ending was a little predictable, it was still dramatic and it the right tone.
The art was in black and white, and this in no way detracts from the story – I often find that b&w can either be too crowded or too sparse (the eye is lazy) not here – the vampires are nasty, and Pinocchio is young by body, but still showing a sadness.
