Nanosferatu: 02/16/11

cover art

With a title like "Nanosferatu" one might expect a vampire story with modern technology. That's sort of true but it reads more like a Batman Beyond origin story than a modern retelling of a classic vampire film.

The story also suffers from stereotyped characters and piss poor accent writing. Sprachmaus, especially, might as well be one of Goebel's scientists but the story is set in modern or near future times. Even given the conceit of the story, how is that possible?

And then there's the man they work for. Of course he has to try it on himself! He might as well be Derek Powers (minus the glow in the dark skeleton). What's missing is the superhero to put things to rights. Instead, being a horror story, the main character's greed and lust is his downfall.
