    Cecily Bain is the enforcer for the vampiric clan running the Twin Cities. She finds a newly sired vampire and offers to take her under her wing. Soon, the two of them get embroiled in a plot to overthrow the current head of the clan. Seeley provides enough intrigue to keep me interested. I've never played Vampire: The Masquerade before. That didn't lessen my enjoyment at all. I didn't know what some of the terms used for, but I was able to figure them out with the given context clues.

There's also a backup story by Blake and Tini Howard involving some hick vampires headed to Minneapolis. It was solid. Also included is about 25 pages of RPG materials for the game this story is based in. Received a review copy from Vault and Edelweiss. All thoughts are my own and in no way influenced by the aforementioned.

And my god, I’m so glad I did. We follow Cecily Bain, a vampire who’s basically the one taking care of the ‘dirty work’ in the Twin Cities ruled by Prince Samantha. To me, The Masquerade sounds like a clan that gathers smaller clans. All vampires belong to a different family, and elderly vampires have special abilities such as controlling the pacing of time, super strength or ultimately, they use their own blood magic to control pretty much everything. This volume has action packed scenes and I feel mad at myself because it took me so long to grab it when it’s really good! Cecily is a great MC and I instantly liked her! I’m also intrigued of what will happen with Ali, Cecily’s adopted childe, whose past seemed darker than I thought it would be. The side character’s stories were interesting too and I’m wondering what the anarchy group will do now that the Cities don’t have a governor per se. Last but not least, the art is quite good and I think they did an amazing job coloring the different scenes, giving them adequate atmospheres. Honestly, this was such an interesting comic that I hope we see more of Cecily and Ali in the future! Totally recommend it! I received an e-book ARC in exchange for an honest review via Diamond Comic Distributors and NetGalley.

    Vampire: The Masquerade was a more formative influence on me than I'm entirely comfortable admitting, right down to the fact that it has coloured my phrasing when I say that I haven't played the game this millennium. Not only that; although, as with so many games, I have enormous bundles of the PDFs, I haven't even read them much* – possibly because it is so firmly linked in my mind with that awkward transitional phase of youth. But when I saw a tie-in comic pop up on Netgalley; and that it was Vampire: The Masquerade was a more formative influence on me than I'm entirely comfortable admitting, right down to the fact that it has coloured my phrasing when I say that I haven't played the game this millennium. Not only that; although, as with so many games, I have enormous bundles of the PDFs, I haven't even read them much* – possibly because it is so firmly linked in my mind with that awkward transitional phase of youth. But when I saw a tie-in comic pop up on Netgalley; and that it was written by Tim Seeley, who has promising past form with the undead in Revival; and that the covers were by Aaron Campbell and David Mack, both of them perfect matches for that old White Wolf aesthetic...well, I could hardly resist. Alas, the first stumbling block was that Devmalya Pramanik's interior art was not on the same level; it gets the scratchy nocturnal feel of the world down, but the characters' anatomies and likenesses are inconsistent to the extent that I'm not even sure how old some of the key players are meant to look (something that is important to the story, when you have a vampire lead still interacting with her mortal family). Nor is it exactly letting down top-notch writing. The setting is the Twin Cities, which obviously fired me off on a whole mental tangent of Hold Steady songs reworked to be about vampires**, and it's explained in a very 'As you know, Vlad' page of exposition that after a long time with the two cities run by one vampire Prince, there's now a movement to split. Our lead, an enforcer whose Brujah tendencies extend only as far as not wanting an official title, is meant to help stop that from happening. Oh, and also the vampire civil war is over and there's a Second Inquisition which somehow involves the CIA but this is a bother rather than a crisis? I don't know, maybe this is all part of the standard setting now, the only changes I was really aware of were the ones where they made three of the clans less spectacularly racist***. But judging from the RPG material giving stats &c for the characters which is included as backmatter (a nice touch, that), even some of the basic attributes have changed, never mind the format for NPC descriptions. That said, one of them does describe a character as "a dilatant poseur" and, while I am intrigued by the notion that vampires, like cats, are non-Newtonian fluids, I'm 99% sure they mean 'dilettante', so maybe it's just shoddy editing. Anyway, I digress. The story is trying to be an Ellroy-style murder mystery which leads into a conspiracy thriller, and it makes some interesting choices (including antagonists who are not the obvious choice to an extent they seems a weird place to start and could almost be considered cheating), but for me it never rose past readability to ever grip per se. Tini Howard (some of whose other stuff I've enjoyed) collaborates with Blake Howard on a back-up strip about anarchs, illustrated by Nathan Gooden, and set near enough that we can assume the two will dovetail at some point, as they duly do. This gets points for the deeply 2020s line "I'd always heard 'Life sucks, and then you die.' But the truth is, you die, and it just gets worse." Beyond which, it's just sort of there, really, contributing to the mood but with even less urgency than the main story. *RPG stuff I have been reading lately includes doomy supplements to the last wave of Warhammer 40K roleplaying, which scratch my itch for that world and its gothic strangeness in a way the core game's increasingly silly attempts to flog plastic no longer can; Troika, essentially Fighting Fantasy as reworked by surrealists; and the new edition of Torg, a game I always used to covet but have never previously read, which in some ways shares a kitchen sink aesthetic with Rifts but seems to execute it all so much more elegantly. **They'd do it as the Hold Undeady, obviously. The album is called Almost Killed Me (But Then Brought Me Back). The main track in my head is Your Little Gangrel Friend, but with something like How a Resurrection Really Feels you don't even need to change it. ***Between this and the current Whedon shitstorm, nineties vampires seem to be the new seventies pop when it comes to a sea of awful on which floats the plaintive excuse 'You have to remember, it was a very different time'.

So, ho 4/5 http://booknest.eu/reviews/charles/21... VAMPIRE: THE MASQUERADE: WINTER'S TEETH VOLUME 1 is a collection of the first five issues of the Vampire: The Masquerade comic book by Tim Seeley, Blake Howard, and Tini Howard. It is set in the World of Darkness universe, popularized by the Vamire: The Masquerade tabletop and video games. We've been reviewing all of the issues here at Grimdark Magazine and think it would be inappropriate not to cover the graphic novel that was recently released. So, how is it? In general, Winter's Teeth is a very solid and entertaining throwback to the Nineties Gothic Punk genre that eventually spawned things like Underworld as well as True Blood. It is a masqued world where the supernatural do their best to protect themselves from the prying eyes of mortals while carrying out sinister plots against, well, mostly each other. Vampires are fiercely competitive with one faction (The Camarilla) having a feudal structure and the other faction (The Anarchs) being, well, anarchic. The comic is set within the Twin Cities of Saint Louis and Minneapolis. The cities have traditionally been considered seperate domains but there's movement to combine them under one single Prince who will rule them all. Completely uncaring about these politics is protagonist, Cecily Bane, who is a former Anarch who has allowed herself to become a traitor to the cause in order to look after her ailing geriatric sister. What follows is a complicated and entertaining set of events that reminds me very much of my tabletop RPG sessions for reasons both good as well as bad. There's a lot of really interesting storytelling going on but I also feel like the Storyteller (Tim Seeley in this case) occassionally throws in ramdom crazy stuff to spice things up. At one point, a bunch of organ-harvesting cyborgs show up and I wondered if someone had been using their homebrew Mage/Vampire crossover material. Cecily is a character that bounces between incredibly unlikable and entertaining in equal measures, which I think is the intent. She's someone who has become jaded on the conflicts of Anarch vs. Camarilla and it has burned her out. Unfortunately, that means she's unwittingly making enemies and does a few things that are just genuinely evil. Very true to the game but sometimes I felt like I wanted to see Cecily staked and left out for the sun. Despite my issues, I absolutely did love the Byzantine plots and betrayals that fill up the story. Cecily recruits a young fledgling in hopes of restoring some of her lost humanity but secretly having let a snake into her home. There's a lot of humor to be had from the fact Cecily doesn't know how to deal with someone from the modern world even though she was Embraced in the Eighties. Really, I actually enjoyed the back-up stories a bit more than the main story and I didn't dislike the main story. The Anarchs are a wonderful collection of oddballs and misfits trying to find their place in the world. Colleen is a fantastic Thin Blooded vampire (basically more human than monster) that is trying to serve as den mother to a bunch of dysfunctional monsters. In conclusion, I really do recommend this book but with some caveats that a slower pace might have actually been better. I wanted to follow up Cordell's vengeance scheme and get to know the Prince more. Vampire: The Masquerade is frequently about getting to know the major players of a single city. Even so, I very much enjoyed this and will be picking up the series as it continues on.

I was introduced to the World of Darkness properties in my late teens and have played several of them both tabletop and LARP style, but V:TM is the one I'm most familiar with, owing to the fact that my college boyfriend was the local LARP group's storyteller.

I've both played genuinely and served as an NPC many times. I've only just started to embrace graphic novels and I was so excited to see a V:TM offering available that I snapped it up and immediately started reading. The art style is dark, gritty, and beautiful. It's reminiscent of the player manuals, but also has that 80s and 90s Buffy, Lost Boys feel. This is the version of vampires I default to when asked to think of vampires. Bravo to the artist(s), very well done! I do appreciate the fact that this novel remains true to its source material to the extent that the leader is the Prince even if she's a woman, and every vampire who's every created another is a sire, even if they're women. Vampires don't care about gender enough to have gendered labels. Part of me has always wanted the terms princess and dam to be used and just given equal power, but this simplified way of doing things also emphasizes how old vampire society is. A princess does not outrank a prince, so the leader must be titled prince. Simple. I do wish this read more like LitRPG with characters levelling up and gaining new skills and abilities as the story progressed. This is built on the lore of an RPG property and we have a brand new vampire learning the ropes. It would have been so easy to do! Aside from that, the story is well thought out and does feel like it could have been a possible play-through of some storyteller's plan, but I wish it had been presented in a more linear fashion. A lot of people get staked and then show up again a few pages later, and I was left unsure which ones weren't staked correctly and which ones were only "alive again" because of timeline jumping. I love the fact that not all of the vampires are purely former humans. A lot of times people playing WoD properties forget that you can mix and match a bit, and that it's absolutely possible to turn something else into a vampire. It's great to see weres and other creatures, and I love how much fun was had with Mitch's forms. (How perfect that he sleeps in dog form!) I also loved the fact that the artwork turned all of the blood on the page into its own character. It moves, it dances. When vampires use it, it's magic. These illustrations actually show that. Overall this is darkly beautiful and a great start to an interesting storyline. Despite my wishes for what I thought was lacking, I do intend to read on when future volumes come out, and I'd also love to read graphic novels from other WoD properties. (Changeling, perhaps?) I recommend this to all gritty vampires lovers and to all fans new and old of WoD and similar RPG systems. In fact, I'm going to tell that old college boyfriend who used to run the local V:TM LARP about it next time we chat!

It was easy to keep up with, and everything made sense without any plot holes or unanswered questions remaining. While the world-building is amazing and full, the characters were even better. Each and every one of them was complex, and it showed their personality, goals, and struggles enough, that the reader can't do much but care about them and their future. Overall, it was a really well-crafted and intriguing book, that I'm sure every comic lover with a taste for dark tales will cherish.

    An absorbing tale for long-time fans of the World of Darkness or people new to it. If you're not familiar with the WoD, you get thrown in just like a newly-embraced vampire. Plenty of action, interesting motivations, and vampire politics seen from an interesting POV. It's not all fancy gatherings and high-level manipulation of mortals. There are two stories.

One is of the Prince's "dirty book" Cecily Bain--a former Anarch who does the dirty work of the Camarilla-aligned Prince and Primogen. Cecily is complicated--connected to her human life but with no illusions about being a monster, cold-blooded but with a soft spot, singing one moment and voicing her monster the next. The other story is of a group of vampires not aligned with any faction and doing their best to survive. The stories show a variety of types of vampires and ways/reasons they were made. They're interesting for me as a fan but also a good example of how varied vampires are. I want to know more about many of the characters and I'm invested in what happens next in the Twin Cities.

    Did I enjoy this book? yes. Do I think it could have done a fantastically better job at being an introduction to Vampirine the Masquerade? YES. This has an incredibly interesting storyline, with really awesome characters, and being set in the Twin Cities it feels different from where Vampire Games are typically set since at their core Political due to "The Masquerade".

I am honestly excited to see where this story goes, because I am in love with Ali and Cicely. My one gripe with the actual story was the overall lack of diversity, as well as who was written to be the overall mastermind of the conflict. What IAM UPSET about is that this piece of fiction expects you to inherently know about this world. So instead of working as a way to bring more people into this fandom. Which with more explanation, or some pre-face could be covered to help facilitate just that. Given that Ali is literally a fledgling and was thrown into this world, Ali could have acted as a fill-in for a better run down of the Masquerade and Clans at least, With their being video games, and table top rpgs, (including resources for said rpg in the back of THIS book) it could definitely have been way more accessible to people and ends up feeling like they made the choice not to be.

The volume is split into five chapters and between each one ‘The Anarch Tales’, a five part story about a group of vampire cast-outs. I was somewhat of a disadvantage as although years ago I occasionally played the tabletop game and also watched ‘Kindred: the Embraced’, the tv series inspired by it, I quickly realised that I was not that familiar with the world of the Masquerade. So I was a little lost as to what was going on. However, I did quite enjoy the main story with Cecily, Alejandra, and the amazing Prince Samantha. I thought the artwork was good with some panels stunning. Following the comic there is a 17-page Role-Playing Supplement. 2.5 stars rounded up to 3.

    You know what's really disappointing? Trying to adapt a TRPG and failing to do that without needless exposition. Most of the main story felt really boring. Too much exposition and not enough feeling the rush of being a vampire. The stories that come at the end of each were generally more interesting, but maybe that's because they were shorter. What's missing from all of it are the sense of improv theater the best TRPG comics have. This felt like the game master was just putting in as much fanservi You know what's really disappointing?

What's missing from all of it are the sense of improv theater the best TRPG comics have. This felt like the game master was just putting in as much fanservice as possible.

    I received this and as an eARC to read for free in exchange for my honest review. Thank you to NetGalley and Diamond Book Distributors for giving me access. I struggled with this one as I needed some more information but I was also left with wanting more. I want't to know what happens next as I have a ton of questions about some characters. As for the story, it jumped around a lot and just when I was getting comfortable with one POV, we jump to a completely different set of characters just to get I received this and as an eARC to read for free in exchange for my honest review.

    To be honest, I asked to review this graphc novel because I love vampires ad the entire 'Realm' they come from and in that aspect, I loved the book. However there were a few times when things just didnt add up or the story skipped too much for me to make sence. I love the storyline between all characters and the few twists and turns added in. I did however think the book would finish at one stage (it made a clean break to end the story), however it carried on. I loved the art style and it worked To be honest, I asked to review this graphc novel because I love vampires ad the entire 'Realm' they come from and in that aspect, I loved the book.

    I love vampires and the art is beautiful, Jut a solid read and honestly, I am excited to read more! Being based on a well-known franchise, I think it will appeal to fans of all sorts and even if it is not for all fans, it can still be enjoyed by many. As always thank you NetGalley for an ARC to review!

    I thoroughly enjoyed this! This adds new elements, species & realism to the world of vampires. The fact that there are different types of vampires and hunters is the real uniqueness, I usually read about on or two types of vampires, but this took influences from many cultures and added them into this story. The political and government was also s interesting. Can't wait to continue this! I thoroughly enjoyed this! This adds new elements, species & realism to the world of vampires.

    I really had fun with this graphic novel filled with different vampire realms, rules and roles. The artwork was really good, and the characters were really well developed. I thought the different types and levels of hunters was really inventive. I would read more of this series if available. I want to thank Edelweiss and the publisher, Vault Comics, for providing me with a copy of this book. This does not affect my opinion regarding the book.

    This comic is based on the TTRPG with the same name. Cecily Bain helps a new vampire and ends up being dragged into a conspiracy. I really wanted to like this book. I loved the art and the character sheets included in the back were a really cool touch. Maybe I didn't enjoy this as much as I had hoped because I was unfamiliar with the game or the world. The dark colors really made the bright red blood pop off the page. I just couldn't get into it. 3 stars Creative Team: Winter's Teeth: Written by Tim This comic is based on the TTRPG with the same name.
