    Andrew Bennett evil brings to mind Angelus from Buffy. Absolutely hateful. I didn't enjoy seeing him that way. I think the world is a much better place without an evil Andrew Bennett!This is definitely dark Vampire-themed horror. The storyline is twisty and it's not in any way predictable. Villains become heroic and vice versa. We get a little backstory on how human Andrew Bennett became a vampire long ago, and why Mary, his eternal bride, hates ...

    I was not very excited by the 2nd Volume of this series. But, being a sucker for vampire stories (no pun intended), I saw the cover and decided "oh let's give it a chance". Well I wasn't really surprised that it wasn't amazing. The sad part is, just like vol 2, it could have been.The way the story starts out-with the History of Andrew Bennet is excellent. The parts set in the "current" time are a bit of a mess. Andrew is evil now. Again. Mary (th...

    Andrew's origin story explains his link with Cain and how the latter's imprisonment occured. And that's the best part, sadly. Andrew has a new personality and is annoyingly confident in his abilities. Since when do vampires generate deadly blasts of energy from their hands? The story gets so convoluted at the end that I just skimmed through it, rooting for a slow death for all the characters. Constantine is by far the coolest, so I guess I could ...

    Oeh, I felt a little confused at times (switching sides, who's with who,...) but still a strong finish!!Also a minor issue that the artwork kept changing ... They should have stuck with Andrea Sorrentino.. Definitely too bad to see it go though. Would loved to have been able to read more "I, vampire".. It's one of the more grittier, darker comics, and just the way I like it!Who knows, maybe they'll pick it back up in the future? :) I can only dre...

    Thank god that's over. I feel like this entire series was just them checking off a list of the most cliched vampire tropes ever and then also deciding that every character should turn back and forth from good to evil every other issue because reasons. You know what was infinitely more interesting than this entire series? The idea of Cain and Lilith as vampires. Not the actual few panels that we got in the comic because those basically consisted o...

    Really good, and sad to see it go. The gritty artwork is appropriate and doesn't detract, but various artists make it a little dirorienting. A nice portrayal of John Constantine, Hellblazer (view spoiler)[ (NOT Constantine: at this point, they are seeming like two separate entities) (hide spoiler)]. The last few ishes seemed dense and a little too easy as far as resolutions, but as the series was closing, it makes sense.

    Great way to end the series!This is a series that has progressively gotten better as I read it. I wasn't that fussed with the first volume, but thought it had potential. I'm glad I continued cause the second book picked up it game and got really interesting. And this volume is even better still, definitely the climax the series needed. At the end of the last book we saw Andrew Bennett suck in all the evil "voodoo" from every vampire in the world,...

    Strong finish. Amusing, action-packed, dark. Self-aware, bit tongue-in-cheek at times. Sad to see it go, but think they finished it right. Bit of a Buffy-esque Big Ending, too.

    The final and best volume of Joshua Hale Fialkov's I, Vampire, Wave of Mutilation spells and rounds out the whole mythology of the series.The "New 52" era at DC ended up somewhat ridiculously derided for its creative choices. I never understood that. Fans certainly quibbled, however, and lost a lot of great reading opportunities as a result. On the first anniversary of the era, there was an origins month, where every title had an opportunity to l...

    Andrew is now bad, Mary is now good (sort of) and the world has changed. Mary finds herself allying with old enemies and rivals in order to stop Andrew from creating a dangerous core of vampire allies and opening the Van Helsing secret toybox of high powered weapons. Only other people have plans for that toybox. The scuffle for it is going to be otherwordly and bloody. I enjoyed how Andrew’s slashy side come out to play with his old friend turn...

    Okay, so I was very unimpressed by the first volume of this New 52 title. Like a lot of New 52 books, it depends on you being already somewhat familiar with the characters and general idea of the book, and I wasn't. Consequently, I was totally lost as far as who the characters were and why I was supposed to care about them. And then (Spoiler alert, but it's for Vol. 1 so really I'm not worried about it) (view spoiler)[the protagonist gets his hea...

    SO DAMN GOOD. The only reason I'm giving this four stars instead of five is that they fell for the mistake of overdoing the plot by the end - which is pretty common. You start with small and as a series goes, you always have to up your game but by the end, this was a big mess. But not big enough so that I don't like it. We've got a glimpse at Andrew's past, how he was turned - and I enjoyed this part a lot. Big evil Andrew wasn't necessarily this...

    I am so backlogged on my reviews of Comic book trades, I want to make a rating system to make things a little simpler. Honestly, I forget a lot of what happens in these trades. They all start to blend together.QUALITY OF ART (Out of 10) 9 ---- When Andrea Sorrentino is drawing the bookQUALITY OF DIALOGUE (Out of 10) 7---- Just above generic.

    Very good. This was much better. Everyone's motivations were clear and became clear. I enjoyed the origins of Cain, Andrew and Mary. Lilith is introduced too. Constantine and the House of Mystery show up. I like when mystical lore is introduced, so we get a brick from the biblical Tower of Babel that opens portals to heaven and hell. Lucifer makes a brief appearance. The art starts to slide here and there in some of the panels especially near the...

    What started off as a very promising new series suffered from publishing issues and ends with a confusing chapter. The series was obviously rushed to a conclusion and made the last collection a confounding nightmare. It was a muddled mess that made nonsensical moves just for the sake of a big change. It accomplished nothing. The bright side was the art, especially the work by Andrea Sorrentino. Overall, a sad misstep.

    Andrew Bennett, evil again, forms a new team of vampires.Ugh. That's my summation. Yuck might be added. The first volume of this series had promise, the second was slow and clunky but ok, and this one was just a total explosion of clichés and vampires tropes combined with needless pages to pull it out longer. This was the end of the series and, in this case, it was deserved.

    Took some bizarre turns, but I enjoyed how it finished out.

    Ich bin wirklich ein großer Fan von Andrea Sorrentino, seine Zeichnungen sind reduziert, aber atmosphärisch, sehr markant und düster und arbeiten viel mit Schatten, womit sie perfekt zu einer Horror-Story wie "Ich, der Vampir" passen. Dieser Zeichenstil ist unverkennbar und definitiv der Grund, warum ich an dieser Serie drangeblieben bin. Das Finale der Reihe ist interessant gemacht, seine Stärke liegt für mich aber weniger im Inhalt als vie...

    Reprints I, Vampire #0, and #13-19 (June 2013-November 2012). Andrew Bennett is now the only vampire on Earth and evil. His former lover Mary finds herself in the unique position of being a hero and sets off with Andrew’s former allies John Troughton and Deborah Dancer to restore Andrew. Andrew however has a plan and the gates to Hell might be opened once again…unfortunately, the original vampire Cain might have something to do about it if Jo...

    I enjoyed this. Definitely. But it was far from perfect. For one, the art was terrible. Sorrentino's style has grown on me, but then, IN THE LAST 3 ISSUES OF THE SERIES, they switch artists. What's worse is that they had one issue that had about 4 different artists and they were switching on every other freaking page. It was terrible. Not only did I hate the inconsistency, but the individual styles weren't that great anyway. On top if that, the s...

    Considering where the second volume ended, I didn't know what to expect with this. What I got was a great follow-up; the role switch between Mary and Andrew is interesting, and the villain's plans are an intelligent indictment of normal super-villain plans. Also, Constantine shows up for several issues, and this is some of the best characterization I've seen for him outside of Hellblazer. The climax is appropriately over the top, although the res...

    Huh. I think that Andrew makes a better villain and that Mary makes a better hero, and as a result, this finale is the best volume in the series.It's got a great, expanding look at our core characters and terrific action adventure. Along the way it manages to touch upon old I, Vampire lore and old DC universe lore alike, resulting in a story that actually has some depth, unlike most of the New 52.Overall, this is a strong (and definitive) end for...

    Wait, we're doing what now? And how come they're all topsy-turvey?This volume didn't take the story where I thought it would (not a bad thing).I don't think this is a spoiler, but the series ended with this volume, but the story didn't end. I don't know if it was a sales thing or if they will bring it back or just have them pop up in other series.

    Better than American Vampire? Dare I say yes? Certainly flawed as well, but I find its flaws more interesting, and it definitely just got stronger as it went on. And yet I feel that it had a good run, it may well have been on the way to a downturn before cancellation. Interested to checking out more from Fialkov (and Sorrentino and Blanco).
  • Christopher
    1970-01-01
    A bit more of the same good stuff from the last volume, except with better use of Constantine and a bit more plot and more story concepts packed in. Only towards the end did that extra stuff start to make those latter chapters feel overstuffed.
  • Ritinha

    O cancelamento obrigou a uma arrumadela apressada das linhas narrativas e isso não ajudou. Até as tiradas de humor negro foram menores, o que é lamentável.É impossível perceber que All-Star Western e I, Vampire sejam títulos cancelados e Nightwing e Batgirl continuem por aí.

    Andrew is bad, Mary is good. Wait…what? I really don’t like to see a bad Andrew but I have to say he is way better at being a villain than Mary ever was, honestly.

    Letting Fialkov's walk was is just one of the many ways in which DC comics has fucked up lately. This volume was just incredible.
