I’ve really enjoyed this series so far, it has definitely had its own feel to it from the beginning. Kim Newman has crafted a bizarre yet semi-familiar world, full of bizarre, but semi-familiar characters. I am, of course, a bizarre and semi-familiar reviewer. It’s been a blast though, much like the blast the rebels wanted to give Dracula during his anniversary celebrations. Last issue saw us on the evening of the Jubilee itself, with Kate being framed for the planned bombing while actually trying to defuse the bomb. It set this book up for an, ahem, explosive finale.
Although we have a cast of thousands, the main thing to be aware of since last issue is that there seem to be a lot of spies and turncoats everywhere, possibly on both sides. No-one can trust anyone.
