For hundreds of years, vampire Andrew Stanton kept mankind safe from the horrors of the supernatural world, thanks to a truce he made with his ex-lover Mary, the Queen of the Damned. But now that truce has reached a bloody end and Andrew must do everything in his power to stop Mary and her dark forces from going on a killing spree – and she plans to start with the heroes of the DCU!

BONUS REVIEW by JOHN SCHAEFER

One of the only titles, I was really on board for at the start of the new 52 hype. The return of Andrew Benett and his somewhat troubled girlfriend Mary was a bright light at the end of the tunnel. Who could forget the elegantly dressed Benett as he passed through the world trying the stop Mary in her quest to destroy mankind in the pages of House of Mystery. So to find that this wonderfully well-rounded character had been turned into some shirtless Twilight wanabee (including the werewolf transformations...eeekk, Jacob,oh we love you!) and Mary into some naked body tattooed harlet was a true slap in the face. Sure times change but this was embarassing, not that there is anything wrong with body tattooed harlets. But the worst thing about this book (and no I'm not going to say the Walking Dead Suburban Vampire Army imagary) is that the world weary Andrew Benett's contemplation of what he had released in Mary has been replaced with a teenager's brooding. It is a subtle difference but it is there and it irritates the hell out of me! Excuse me, I have to head down to the comic shop and pick up some old House of Mystery issues to wash the taste of this book out of my mouth.
