With the opening 'origin' arc behind us, we now begin a new one
- Spoiler: show
This is a very Halloween-appropriate issue! I am looking forward to this arc. Funny for Gail to play off of Neena's paleness lol. I do hope Blade shows up as I am a fan and it is nice to see him pop-up in different titles since he doesn't have his own these days (fix this Marvel).
I did find the writing a little uneven though to be honest. The scenes in Norway were creepy and there was a horror vibe, but then the vampires were actually kind of playful it seemed. I mean playing with their prey so still horror, but then there was a tragic moment with the bride as a victim, only to be followed by her stated desire for people to be cattle. It just seemed tonally off to me. But I don't know the complexities of emotion involved with turning from alive to undead I guess.
Still as I said I am excited for this arc and the guest stars that are coming.

Yeah I did find it weird the bride vampires were almost in some kind of fugue state at the start, kinda reliving the wedding. But all of a sudden they were cognative enough to explain the ultimate plan.
Also, Domino was surprised at seeing vampires and had heard that Jubilee was one. They served on the same team together on Utopia and Domino even helped Jubilee deal with a vampiric sect during X-Men 3rd series.
Everybody is entitled you their opinion...but yours is wrong.

I kind of enjoyed this. I liked that it was a bit silly and didn’t take itself too seriously, which? With a character like Domino, is a real risk. Although i DID think that Morbius had been de-vamped...
