"New York Times" bestselling author Laurell K. Hamilton brings Anita Blake to the world of graphic novels. Anita Blake lives in a world where vampires, zombies and werewolves have been declared legal citizens of the United States. Anita Blake is an "animator" - a profession that involves raising the dead for mourning relatives. But Anita is also known as a fearsome hunter of criminal vampires, and she's often employed to investigate cases that are far too much for conventional police. But as Anita gains the attention of the vampire masters of her hometown of St. Louis, she also risks revealing an intriguing secret about herself - the source of her unusual strength and power.

An interesting first adaptation of this series to comic books. As far as comic book art goes it is more than passable, though skewed more towards the grotesque and angular. Unfortunately Anita comes across as much less thoughtful through the translation of this book to a more visual medium: her witty commentary is faithfully inscribed here in the panels but any careful explications or description is lost in the realm of the superfluous, making her seem much more off-the-cuff and less rounded as a character.

Still interested for a fan of Laurell K, however, and I will probably buy the second volume.

I never thought I would like Marvel Comics, I have never been into it before. But Laurell K. Hamilton is one of my favourite authors, so i thought i would give it a try.
And I am glad I did, it is different from reading the book, there are lots of bits left out, but you get used to it because you know the story already. And it is pretty gory, i never knew that they were this detailed on displaying blood. Totally Awesome, considering I like reading Horror!
I really enjoyed reading this comic, and I really can't wait until the next Volume comes out. It's very addictive!
So I give this one a thumbs up, it's a very good read, and it may hook you into reading the entire series of the Paperback books.
I suggest to people, only read it if you like blood, gore and death. And definately read the series!!!

Guilty Pleasures Review:
This is the first book in LKH's Anita Blake series and it was a good effort. Anita's usual job consists of raising the dead and slaying vampires. But when she is contacted by the local master vampire and set to finding the killer of a number of vampires she finds herself in a whole boat of trouble. When I first read it I thought that the book was great. After I had finished I wished that I could read the rest of the books right away.
