Graphic Novel Friday Dusk David Doub
I have been fortunate to begin to find alternatives to the Marvel and Dc stable of superheroes. I am looking forward to meeting many more when I go to the New York City Comic Con Friday October 8th.Finding these gems is part of what makes doing this fun, besides reading a good graphic novel. Dusk by David Doub is just that a well written, well put together graphic novel, which utilizes different forms of artwork.
Here is a little something from the graphic novel to best explain the story of Dusk as seen through the eyes of the characters creator, David Doub: “As a battered Wife Eve’s only concern was to keep her marriage together. But when she is kidnapped in to the sordid supernatural world of vampires and foul magic, Eve finds she doesn’t want to leave. Her mysterious benefactor, the Vampire Lord Ash, wish her to have a normal life but Eve choses to stay in the service of Ash. Dusk is the stories about Eve and her challenges living in the darkness. Dusk is a supernatural action/ drama story done in a dramatic blending of the sequential art style of American Comics and Japanese Manga. Several artists help tell these stark noir tales of Vampires and unrequited love.”
I think that is a pretty full description and I like that it comes from the author himself. He is sharing his vision and having the graphic novel I would say that he fulfilled that vision and more. Dusk is a different sort of supernatural story I feel because of its deeper dark side. It separates itself in that manner from what I am used to in the more commercial/conventional/ mainstream graphic novel world. Don’t misunderstand me, I mean it in the best possible context, not in an unflattering way, quite the opposite. If you are looking for something with an edge, moxie, a little kick in the pants, different styles of art, then this is your type of graphic novel, pick it up and enjoy it.
News Flash straight from the man himself, David Doub: Dusk #2 is out and here is the back cover blurb of the book -Eve is still in a trap of her own devising. She tries to find her place in a horrid supernatural world that does not want her. She thinks she loves a vampire and is definitely addicted to the power of his blood. She encounters everything from Zombies to Demons and the morality of her life is always murky at best. Dusk continues to explore the dark recesses of the Vampire mythos, mining out a hauntingly entertaining read. Come join in Eve's continuing journey of damnation and possible redemption. 150 Pages
