3.0 out of 5 stars Gangsters v vampires v aliens., 9 Sept. 2011
This review is from: Turf (Hardcover)
A nice concept with some cracking art from Edwards but the problem is that there are too many ideas floating about which ultimately harm the overall story. The first chapter is dialogue heavy which sets the scene for the coming events and is easily the most interesting part of the story. Alas as the story moves on it becomes slightly run of the mill and cliched. Set in early 20th century New York, the story picks up with a new gang on the block. This gang hail from Eastern Europe and plan to take the city and ultimately the country for themselves. Whilst the gangsters bootleg booze, the new guys want blood. Add into the mix sibling rivalry and a mysterious vampire god, the eastern Europeans plan to make big, big changes. This is only part of the problem as more unexpected visitors arrive in New York only this time they are from another world. But maybe they may just be part of the solution and not the problem and might just be able to help turn the tide.

So all in all the story features many, many interesting ingredients which unfortunately becomes part of the problem with just too many things going on which dilutes the initial impact. The final page possibly gives a hint of things to come should there be a sequel but Ross has already shot down this idea as just a little bit of mischief. It's a bright and positive start for Ross's comic writing career but just a tad cluttered.
