Life Sucks (2008)

EW's GRADE
B

Details Release Date: Apr 29, 2008; Writers: Jessica Abel, Gabe Soria; Genres: Comic Books/Graphic Novels, Fiction; Publisher: First Second

As if his 20s weren't hard enough, Dave's boss turns him into a vampire. Even worse, Rosa, the goth girl with a penchant for the undead, won't pay him any attention.

For Fans of...
Buffy; the Twilight saga.

Bottom Line
Although it's refreshing to see a young, working vampire in Jessica Abel, Gabe Soria, and Warren Pleecea's witty story, the art feels unoriginal and the dialogue verges on the corny, especially towards the end. Fans of teen vamps will be sucked in by Life Sucks anyway. B
