Midnight Opera, A: Volumes 1 & 2 (2005)
Fiction Review by The Gravedigger

Midnight Opera, A: Volumes 1 & 2 (2005) Written/Illustrated by Hans Steinbach

These two Manga books from TokyoPop are horror on an epic scale, successfully creating a gothic world in which werewolves, vampires and zombies are all too real inhabitants.

The story revolves around two supernatural brothers, Ein DeLalune and Leroux DeLaLune. Ein is the more 'human' of the two, as he's managed to fall in love with human women, an emotion that his kind rarely, if ever, encounters much less embraces.

In fact, in the present day, he has become a Goth Metal sensation. Leroux, on the other hand, has chosen to stay in the background of the city. Oh - and they both can turn into ferocious, towering werewolves.

Their enemy is a fanatical priest who has sold his sole to destroy them - and his allies are a group of the undead, including Viktor Frankenstein. Ein and Leroux must settle their differences and unite in order to fight them and repair this rift that has formed among the undead populace of the city. Elizabeth Bathory, who bathes in the blood of young women, is also on hand - and we're not sure if she's clearly an enemy or an ally.

The artwork is very detailed, particularly with the werewolf transformations (they look more like the 'upright' werewolves in THE HOWLING or THE CURSE) and the pace of the two books is intense. If you haven't had time to read any of the Anne Rice vampire novels and are interested in experiencing a horror story on a grand scale, then this is definitely for you. It also doesn't hurt if you also love the classic monsters - the vampires and werewolves.
