Are you tired of vampires glittering in the sunlight and displaying basic tendencies of stalker like behavior? Do you want your vampires to ummm ……you know……actually kill some one? If you answered yes then I present to you The Strain adapted from the novel trilogy by Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan into a comic by David Lapham. The spoiler free plot synopsis is the following: When a Boeing 777 lands at JFK International Airport and goes dark on the runway, the Center for Disease Control, fearing a terrorist attack, calls in Dr. Ephraim Goodweather and his team of expert biological-threat first responders. Only an elderly pawnbroker from Spanish Harlem suspects a darker purpose behind the event-an ancient threat intent on covering mankind in darkness. I’ve read the first two novels in the series and trust me when I tell you that things get real violent real quick, so if you’re into vampires that aren’t in love with emotionally inept pale chicks then you will enjoy The Strain comic or novel.
