Review – Van Helsing: Bloodborne

A new one-shot story from Zenescope Entertainment. This is Van Helsing: Bloodborne.

Liesel Van Helsing has always been driven by two things: science and hunting vampires. Although she inherited both interests from her father, one is a calling, while the other is her passion. But, when the supernatural and scientific parts of her life collide to take a twisted turn, Liesel is caught in the middle and must deal with the results of a failed, but very deadly, experiment. Who–or what–is Bloodborne? What does it want? And, most importantly, can Liesel stop this mysterious new creature before it gets out into the world?

STORY – DAVE FRANCHINI, DAVID WOHL & PAT SHAND
WRITER – PAT SHAND
ARTWORK – ALLAN OTERO
COLORS – WALTER PEREYRA
LETTERS – TAYLOR ESPOSITO OF GHOST GLYPH STUDIOS

This is an interesting one. Linking together with the recent losses Van Helsing has had, we meet another of her friends from a previous adventure. Igor is a scientist, and as we learn, he participating in some seriously dangerous science. The introduction to this issue gives us a good idea as to what it is.

Building up relatively slowly after the initial flash-forward, we get a good look as to what this problem is – after that, things rapidly degenerate from there.

The action is well told, with multiple gruesome fatalities. It is well done in some tight spaces – including the catacombs of Paris (somewhere I would like to see) the claustrophobic spaces are well shown and have some good aspects to it.

This is an interesting stop-gap for Van Helsing and I wonder where she will be next…

The thoughts that Igor may have should be tempered with the fact that if Van Helsing wasn’t there – things would have been worse.
