Castlevania: The Belmont Legacy is anyone reading this great series?
I've recently gotten into the new, Castlevania: The Belmont Legacy, series by IDW. The second issue was just released a few weeks back and like the majority of the games the comic is really good. I highly recommend checking it out especially if your a fan of the Castlevania games.
I passed this title on the stands the other day. The name caught my attention, but I didn't pick it up and look through it.
What's the artwork like? Is it manga style? Or like a Vertigo Horror book? Or something else?
What's the writing like? A fast paced action story, or a creepy horror atmosphere?
I'd say the art style is very similar to that of the older Castlevania games and not like the newer more anime looking art seen in the more recent games in the series.

I read the first issue, and thought it was kind of bland. The art in the second issue looked too cartoony for a horror comic, so I passed on it.

Spiral out. Keep going"
