    Agreed. I thought it was at least a four star effort; perhaps 4.5.
    Be careful when speaking. You create the world around you with your words.

    I'm planning on buying the Vol 1 trade, is this a good issue to read beforehand?

    I agree. I would have given it four stars. I know there was limited space to tell the story, but it still felt a bit rushed. I didn't feel that we got a good enough picture of how he processed becoming a vampire.

    I don't believe there were any spoilers in it, so you could read it before volume one if you want. Or you could wait to read it until after #12 (or even after the trade). It's up to you. I don't know when the trade comes out, but if you want a taste of the series before you read it, then I say go for it.

    I'm still waiting for a new Wonder Twins ongoing. Let's make it happen, DC.

    The trade will be out next week, and the rest of the issues up to #12 will be collected in a second trade in March.

    Good story and great art. My one complaint about Sorrentino's art, however, is that I have often found it too dark, i.e., nearly impossible to figure out what is going on. Whoever is doing the colors needs to lighten up (pun intended) just a bit.
