    4.5 stars. This totally KICKS ASS. Love the story, love the characters, love the graphic representations of the vampires and zombies. Gruesome and gory yet it all looked so gorgeous cast in deep reds, oranges, blacks and blues. I also thought the story carried well - not highly original mind you - but the delivery is filled with genuine moments of tension and terror. I was especially pleased and surprised by some of the more emotional aspects of the story.These vampires are vicious and merciless yet with a style and intelligence that's intimidating. They can think and plan and execute. These are not brooding, pouting, "conflicted" emo vampires, yet I appreciated that some of the newly turned are haunted by their human memories and the memory of feelings they can no longer feel. Not so grandiosely tormented as Rice's never-ending "whining" Louis from Interview With the Vampire, but still, enough to make these vampires a little more complicated, a bit more rich, than your average blood-sucking creature of the night. There are clans, and rivals, and rogues, and plenty of innocents caught in the cross-fire. Drama! The zombies are sad and heart-breaking (I always seem to find them so - except for Danny Boyle's zombies). The FVZA zombies are very similar to the ones I've seen in The Walking Dead series (I haven't read the graphic novels, so I'm only basing that on Darabont's interpretation). The zombies are shambling and starving, haunted and lost. They ramble and feed, yet there is a hint, always just a hint, of some long lost memory of what they used to be. Romero's zombies treat the mall like Mecca; these zombies hold onto music. It's a nice touch and plays very effective in the story. Just read it! You won't regret it.

    This is comic writing at its best. David Hine took a web page and turned it into one kick-ass comic. I read David Hine's "Spawn series" and was impressed with the writing and the added concept added to "Spawn" I may check out his "Spiderman Noir" jump off as well.The artwork in this graphic novel is pure. All most real at some times. Highly Recommend to Vampire, Zombie and Horror Comic readers.

    Downloaded the ePub from the library. It did not disappoint.The art is spectacular.Radical Studios has some awesome titles ( ). If I could afford comics and graphic novels anymore I'd be stalking their line of books for sure.

    Amazing. Too bad it ends with just the one book. Been a while since I've cried reading a comic. Just go buy it already.My only complaint is lack of background on our lead/ leads.On a side note. Not a sparkly one in the bunch. For those who appreciate their monsters monstrous this will curb your insatiable love for the dark.

    Hine portrays his vampires in FVZA as cruel ferocious killers with little to no regard for humanity. Unlike what you see on TV, Hine's vampires are deliberately ugly. My favorite line in this book was when the head vampire points out once a vampire is turned, he or she loses his/her physical beauty--meaning that the hair falls out, the skin turns ashen, the head starts to shrivel, etc. Gross!Aside from the scary portrayal of vampires which is aided immensely by the terrific artwork, this graphic novel is also strengthen by a well-thought out storyline. The book opens with a FVZA (Federal Vampire Zombie Agency) agent named Landra Pecos ready to shoot her grandfather who has just been turned. In a series of flashbacks, we see her upbringing, her training and subsequent entry into the field, and the tragic deaths of both her brother and her lover which have brought her to this point. Intermingled with these scenes is the return of the vampires who were nearly wiped out by the FVZA in the 60s. This new wave of vampires is now plotting to utilize a zombie plague to bring society's to its knees by unleashing the virus into a small town. Ah, nothing like a little mayhem and chaos thrown in to amp up the adrenaline.The story is obviously well-paced with a number of terrific plot twists at the very end. I won't reveal what happens with Landra and her grandfather but suffice it to say, you will be surprised. This was an enjoyable read from start to finish.

    Radical has been surprising me in these last months every time time a new title comes out. Each title brigs something new to topics and stories already beaten, both in literature or comics.FVZA is another of those titles, vampires, zombies, humanity in the verge of annihilation, and a group ready to deal with it. But as soon as you start reading you become immerse in a new world of vampires and zombies, different habits, different ideals, no self-love what-so-ever, and last but not least, the gothic beauty is an idea which does take part in this story, and you find it an exception rather than the rule.The graphics are great, the script is very good, colouring amazing, a must read.

    It passed some time since I read a good story about vampires. I think, it is the first comic about vampires that I really liked. The characters are very complex, vampires, zombies, and humans. The art is amazing, really dark and with a creepy atmosphere. And, most of all, coming back to the characters, they seam real.Really good comic. I want to read more, but there is only this book (I think ...)

    This was fantastic and the artwork was absolutely spectacular. I thought this was a very realistic portrayal of a world inhabited by vampires zombies and humans. I have yet to visit the website that this is based on, but I have no doubt I will really enjoy it. As another reviewer stated it's a well thought out story and I personally hope there will be more books.

    This was fun - quite a deeply-thought-through world to explore, and evolves like a good, compressed sci-fi novel - seeing how this alternate universe would play out its circumstances. Art was fine but sometimes muddied the scene.

    Genuinely creepy, beautifully illustrated, and not at all cliched.
