Pinocchio: Vampire Slayer - Van Jensen, Dusty Higgins Pinocchio is all grown up (well, sort of,) and has found honest work, and a never-ending supply of... wait for it... vampire killing stakes. Oh, I guess you got that part from the title and cover art? So the hook is obvious, Pinocchio, the wooden boy of the original story, finds his purpose in life when he accidentally discovers that his nose is a danger to bloodsucking fiends who have moved into his village. The art is bold and starkly drawn, not usually my favorite artistic style, but it just works so well here. The dialogue is noir-sparse. The best part is the redux of the original story as the intro to the piece, it had me laughing. Scenes with Fox and Cat, and the Four Rabbits were also great, but all too short, which is really my only complaint.
