Having read the manga version Sanctum Redux first, it was interesting to read the original, particularly as I know Bec more as writer than artist.
It still does fall apart towards the end and the lesser amount of space means characters are less distinct and events more rushed in comparison to the manga.
It is, nonetheless, a fun horror tale of who-will-be-killed-next by the lurking, rarely glimpsed menace surrounding them.
As usual, it's an excellently presented hardback from Humanoids too.
Blood Stain Volume 2
After the intro that was the first volume, things get cooking a bit more here and it is something rarely seen in comics - screwball comedy with a point. Stein and Elly go at each other in a storm of mutual misapprehensions, assumptions, prejudice, total errors before concluding maybe it'll perhaps work out.
Not a lot really happens here in terms of plot, but it's the execution and characterisation that makes it work. By doing it all - writing, lettering, art - Sejic knows exactly what she's going for and nails it every time. This was both superbly entertaining and very funny because it meets the two requirements of comedy: Funny and true.
At the same time it is utterly unique. There is no other book at all like this on the market and it's great, but it deserves a bigger audience so consider giving it a try. (Also available online for free as a webcomic too.)
