This final issue does a very good job of finishing off some existing issues and storylines, while building up for the future. Of course there are losses – these are done well and are kind of expected. There are some interesting twists and turns too.
This is more of an ensemble book than just Van Helsing – Van Helsing is the connective tissue here, and the one that brings both the humans and villains together.
Robyn really has some time to shine here – she does seem a lot more chirpy than she is in her own mini-series. That is saying something as she has to deal with a pack of werewolves here.
Hellchild is well done too – she has other powers and this links in nicely with them all. I like the reveal though and there’s a good ‘of course’ moment for the reader.
As I say there are thing to look forward to in the future. There is the Jekyll and Hyde problem – I expect that will be a long, ongoing problem with its ups and downs.
Then there is the classic dusting off at the end – that may be more of an immediate problem.
I also like the way that the main villains were put away – certainly there must be a door for them to return in the future.
Nevertheless, this issue finishes things off well and Van Helsing should have a nice rest. An excellent finish!
