Review by: Michael Foster on Aug. 02, 2015 :
Fun! This will make a great graphic novel. I really liked the inventive situations and back-stories. The women in it aren’t weak. You don’t need to be a vampire or steampunk fan to enjoy it. I learned a lot of historical and cultural things as I read, too. Totally worth the $5.
