Revue de presse

"David Lapham adapts the popular horror book series with his signature style of grit, terror, and tension."--IGN.com

Présentation de l'éditeur

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. In one week, Manhattan will be gone. In one month, the country. In two months--the world. This horrifying first chapter introduces an outbreak of diabolical proportions that puts a terrifying twist on the vampire genre! Collects issues #1 through #11.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Blood, violence and Apocalyptic demise! 15 juillet 2014
Par Jamie E. - Publié sur Amazon.com
Death, horror, and vampires all wrapped up in a graphic novel! This is the first TWO original volumes combined into one book! This was something I could not pass up. Although, I must confess, when I first got this, I had not fully read the summary so based on the covers and images I had scene with the biohazard warnings, I expected zombies. Still, I was very happy to have read this and more to come below and the vampire/zombie confusion.

The book centers mostly on CDC expert Dr. Goodweather and his partner. They are on assignment to figured out why a plane lands and then suddenly everyone in the plane mysteriously dies. But as the doctor and his partner investigate further, they learn the passengers are not "dead" for long. They come back as vampires and start attacking others. A race against time with enemies on all sides.

We mainly follow The good doctor as he struggles to balance his home life and work. He is in an ugly custody battle for his son when this all goes down. There is some great personal relations going on in the book. At first he is facing a medical mystery. Then a violent nightmare! In addition to his character we also get snippets into other officers, doctors, victims and a villain who is using his power and money to destroy mankind.

The art is very well done. Each character unique and very expressive. The violence is very graphic. And please note, very mature artwork containing violence and nudity. While I can enjoy what is in this, I would be horrified if a child got their hands on this! Great detail is given on every image. And it is very well done. The full page inserts were especially well done! The characters looked almost real. The only thing less that thrilling were that many of the "vampires" looked the same. But I will blame that on the transformation they undergo.

Speaking of the vampire concept, I still think of them as more zombie like. Besides their blood being drained and then filled with a white fluid replacement they are more zombie in reactions, behavior and overall looks. The exception is the "Masters." They way the move and attack very zombie like. Although they do burn in sunlight. Still, with how their stinger/tongues work these are some nasty, weird creatures of the night!

Now I love the concept! It is dark, fast-paced and will have you on edge and looking at the images with a twisted sense of glee. I love how the doctor meets one who is well familiar with the vampires but by doing so has even more consequences. Lots of action and great characterization fill these pages. My favorite character so far is the rat exterminator. Smart, logical, level headed and witty. I hope to see more of him in the future volumes.

Fans of the Walking Dead will likely enjoy this. The characters do not have quite the depth yet, but they and the story are constantly improving as it moves along. I will definitely be keeping an eye out for future volumes.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Graphic Novel 23 juillet 2014
Par Adam Hasser - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
The 3 star rating is strictly so that I can comment on people unhappy/unaware they bought, or are considering buying, this Graphic Novel. Below are some ways to tell the difference between Novels and Graphic Novels.

When a book is listed at 120-240 pages and has illustrator/s listed under the title, that should be a good indication that said book is a graphic novel. Here's another give away "Due to its large file size, this book may take longer to download." Also Paperback Graphic Novels have a list price of $15-$25 and are typically 10x7.

Dark Horse is smartly splitting each book into 2 volumes. This way they can tell the whole story with out glossing over all of the details. In other words don't expect to buy the first 3 volumes and be done with the story. It's going to be 6 volumes.

I've read the first issue of this volume and thought it was pretty good. I've read the books and I'm now watching the show as well. It seems like most people who have read the books, and like comics, enjoy the series.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A Solid and Entertaining Vampire Comic 12 juillet 2013
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
THE STRAIN is a solid vampire thriller and is excellent in graphic novel form. Some reviewers have complained that the story is cliche, and to some extent they are right in that THE STRAIN is not completely original -- it is a story clearly in the tradition of Stoker's DRACULA.

The tale begins with a plane landing in at the JFK with its crew and passengers mysteriously dead and a coffin full of dirt stowed away in its cargo hold -- a scene that pays homage to Count Dracula's infamous landing in London. The rest of the story proceeds similarly, the scenes and characters repeatedly tying back to Stoker's classic tale of vampirism (including a vampire-slayer/professor) while still remaining refreshingly modern.

Although good, THE STRAIN, VOLUME 1 is not without its flaws. The story itself is strong, but most of characters (including the lead) are somewhat bland; however, since this volume is just the beginning of the tale, hopefully they'll be more fully fleshed-out in future volumes. Additionally, the artwork takes some getting used to -- the covers are fantastic, but Huddleston's work is a bit inconsistent. Mostly the characters and figures are relatively detailed and well-drawn, but sometimes panels feature oddly distorted figures that seem out of place. This distracted me at first, but by the end of the book I scarcely noticed.

THE STRAIN is perhaps not the best vampire comic out there (that would probably be Snyder's AMERICAN VAMPIRE), but it is nonetheless solid, entertaining, and horrific enough to be a welcome break from more sparkly vampire fiction.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Viral-zombie-worm-vampire graphic fiction 23 juillet 2014
Par Alt - Publié sur Amazon.com

Based on the novel and television series of the same name, The Strain features everyone's favorite abominations: zombies and vampires. As if the world hasn't seen enough of those stories, this one combines the two to give us -- wait for it -- zombie vampires. What more could you ask? Nazi death camps? Yes, that abomination also makes an appearance. While The Strain isn't particularly original, the story is capably executed and the art is suitably gory, and some aspects of the story seem fresh despite the book's overall familiarity.

A plane lands at JFK and six minutes later, nearly every passenger appears to be dead. The star of The Strain is a CDC investigator who is divorced from (and in a custody dispute with) another CDC investigator. So far, The Strain sounds like the movie Outbreak -- except for the vampire. One of the three survivors has a pasty complexion, spooky eyes, and dresses goth, but that's because he's in a band. No, the coffin in the cargo hold provides a better clue to the plane's fate -- that, and the fact that the corpses on the plane never enter rigor mortis or attract flies.

Of course, there's a Romanian with a cane that conceals a silver sword who is mistaken for a batty old coot when he tries to warn the doctors about the vampire coffin. He's too late, as reanimated corpses return to life at night with a thirst for blood. The zombie-vampires are hosting things that come out of their mouths like really long tongues, so they are sort of zombie-worm-vampires, easily mistaken for space aliens. The head vampire, known as "the Master," seems to be the focal point of an evil conspiracy that, like all evil conspiracies, is being furthered by a group of rich old "I want to rule the world" types.

The family drama that surrounds the key character is trite but appealing. The best characters, however, are a streetwise dude and a pest control rat specialist. Some clever touches and colorful dialog make it easy to overlook the fact that this has mostly been done (and overdone) before. I just couldn't help myself -- I enjoyed it despite my sense of having overdosed on viral-zombie-worm-vampire fiction. And the covers are suitable for framing -- at least if framed nightmare-inspiring art is your thing.
3.0 étoiles sur 5 Visceral vampire story 12 novembre 2015

I sometimes wonder what Bram Stoker would think about the fact that his work spurred an entire industry of copy-cats. Everybody thinks that they can make an interesting and novel contribution to this vampiric genre. In very few cases, see: Richard Matheson’s “I am Legend”, they are correct. However, even though most of these works don’t take us into uncharted territory, they can still be entertaining. In fact, some of the versions that stay true to the concept seem more entertaining than others that moved into new territory but are patently stupid. I’m speaking, of course, of “Twilight” and other vampire-as-romance books that feed a widespread malady of the age afflicting teenage girls and, sadly, middle-aged women. I think “The Strain, Volume 1” makes for an interesting and entertaining modern-day vampire story, without being particularly brilliant or groundbreaking.

“The Strain, Volume 1” is the first installment of a graphic novel adaptation of the novel written by Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan. The Introduction states that the graphic novel isn’t meant to precisely mirror del Toro and Hogan’s prose novel. I haven’t read the del Toro / Hogan book, but the synopsis indicates that at least the beginning and the characters are largely the same. I can’t comment as to how much the two works differ in detail, and whether the authors of the first book emphasized the difference so as to encourage readers to pick up both books (instead of cannibalizing each other), versus because the works are truly substantively different.

The inciting incident, apparently for the novel as well as the comic, occurs when a commercial jet liner lands in New York, coming to a stop and going out of contact with the tower. It turns out that all but three of the individuals on the plane are dead.

The graphic novel weaves together the story from two perspectives. First, the lead in the story is Dr. Ephraim Goodweather, a Center for Disease Control (CDC) employee who heads a rapid response team. As circumstances somehow indicate that this event involves a biological or toxic substance—though they have no ability to see into the plane, Goodweather’s team is called to investigate. (How they concluded with such high certainty that it was a substance in CDC’s bailiwick and not smoke inhalation or a terrorist hijacking is beyond me. But the CDC team enters on the heels of SWAT, and with operational control.) However, it’s a graphic novel with limited page constraints, so I didn’t grade too harshly on this particular type of credulity stretcher.

Second, the graphic novel begins with a vignette from the point of view of Abraham Setrakian who is a holocaust survivor and former Vampire hunter. Setrakian knows what is going on from his experience in the old world. It’s this odd couple pairing of an old man who knows an unbelievable truth and a scientist who doesn’t believe in the supernatural that makes this work interesting. The latter anchors the work in the world as we know it, but the former adds an element of mystery and charm. These mixed atmospherics are where this work really excels. The two men end up teaming up to fight a threat that will spread with unchecked fury unless they do something about it.

Unlike the hunky Vampires of “Twilight” fame, the vampires in Lapham’s work are meant to be as repulsive as possible. They have six foot tongues with stingers by which they take their blood meals, and the giant slobbery maws necessary to accommodate such an appendage. Instead of having a new twist on the Vampire story, this work attempts to create value added in part by putting the horror back into Vampires in a big way (also, through skillful atmospherics.)

It should also be noted that this isn’t a work for young kids. That should go without saying, I know. Freak-show parents who reason that it’s only violence, and who have no problem with their child seeing someone take a shotgun blast to the chest, but who’ll write a death threat to networks, publishers, or congressmen if said shotgun blast exposes a nipple should be forewarned that the work has a short but sexually graphic section in it—in addition to all the stakings and proboscis stabbings.

This was an entertaining enough horror-genre take on the Vampire. Scientists may find it a bit ridiculous that their comic book counterparts go about their jobs sticking their hands in unknown substances found at the site of the mysterious deaths of almost 200 people. However, despite some credulity challenges, the book creates an interesting atmosphere for a vampire story.
