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 J. Rivera - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
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 Rob W M - 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.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Good, but not great 8 décembre 2012
Par QuietNoise - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
I have read this series from Chuck Hogan and Guillermo Del Toro, and I could always see the movie in this. In fact, I thought it had been written to be made into a movie. So when I heard there was a graphic novel coming out, I was somewhat excited by the prospect. I hate to say this, but this one disappointed me. When I got the galley, it had this beautiful, if somewhat scary, cover design. I will show you.

As you can see, lots of style with this and it made me want to open it up. After a few more beautifully painted pages, the graphic novel starts in a totally different style. In my opinion, this did not work for the story line.

Many of the characters did not resemble the picture I had in my head of them. The creatures looked great on the painted pages, but did not work quite as well when in comic style.

The story held true to the book and the action moved very well, so in that aspect it is very good.

I think this is one of those graphic novels that you would want to read before the actual book. I can see, when done in that order, this would be quite a thrill ride but for me, it was good - but not great.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A great read 6 décembre 2012
Par Lakis Fourouklas - Publié sur Amazon.com

The Strain Volume 1 is a graphic novel that combines the genres of traditional vampire literature and ancient folklore in order to deliver a modern day tale of horror and nonstop action.

This is an adaptation of the first novel in the Strain Trilogy by Guillermo Del Toro and Chuck Hogan, or maybe not exactly so, as the authors point out in their introduction.

"This is not an illustrated version of our novels. This is a graphic retelling: a visual translation and a definitive one. As such, we asked only for the application of fresh energy and bold thinking. Other than that, we granted David Lapham and Mike Huddleston free reign and embraced them as true partners in this enterprise."

It all begins with a flashback. We visit a rural scene in the country of Romania in 1927. An old woman tells a boy that goes by the name of Abraham the story of Jusef Sardu, an eccentric nobleman, in order to make him eat his foot. According to her, and local legend, Sardu was a man unlike any other. He was so tall that he looked down on everyone, yet looked down on no one. And the children loved him. He was sick though, but what his illness really was nobody knew.

Sardu used to live a peaceful life, until one day his noble father, decided to take him with him for a wolf hunt that would lead to a disaster and which would change, in unimaginable ways, his life forever.

Young Abraham believed the story, even though at the time he didn't exactly know what had happened to the man. In the years to come he would come to find out, and thus find in a mysterious way his life's true purpose.

And back to the future, which is today, we go. Though we live in an era in which a terrorist attack is always the most frightening thing that could possibly happen, a yet more unusual and terrifying event takes place; an event that will bring the then boy and now elder man Abraham back to action. When an airplane lands in New York and rumors start spreading around about the fate of its passengers, he knows who's behind the whole thing. But how can he help the authorities cope with the threat? And how can he convince them that he, a frail old man, knows more about it than they do?

He has no choice but to risk his freedom in order to save innocent lives. So he comes in contact with the authorities. He tells them his thoughts, he yells at them that they have to do as he says before it's too late, but to no avail.

In the meantime the flashbacks continue and during them we get to know Abraham better, as well as his nemesis, Jusef Sardu, the man he's determined to stop no matter what. But how can one kill the undead? He knows how, but the stubborn young men won't listen to him. They've even thrown him in jail.

Now it's up to Dr. Ephraim Goodweather to save the day. But will he make it? It seems unlikely, since he doesn't really know what he's up against to. However his job is not the only thing in his mind right now; he also thinks about his son Zack and his ex-wife Kelly, whom he still loves, and he secretly mourns about the life that he dreamed about but that wasn't meant to be. He's a brave man, willing to admit his mistakes and do anything to right his wrongs, but at the same time he's just a human being, who's simply trying to make it through another day, and who at moments also seems weak and lost for hope.

This is a story with a good plot, great character built-up and beautifully dark illustrations which bring to life the bleak subject matter. I haven't read the Strain trilogy, but if this graphic novel is any indication about how good the books are, I think that maybe I should at least give them a try.
