Started my weekend by reading the comics and graphic novels sent to me by Image Comics. My first pick was The Fang by Miles Gunter. The cover really caught my attention. It was just stunning but what completely dumbfounded me was the fact that the first page was explicit. But it’s clear depiction of what’s happening in our society today. Women, especially young girls, giving in to the perversion of social media to earn a few bucks. If successful, they’ll get more than they can receive from a normal waged job.

As I read through it, I got quite confused with the storyline. I don’t know what is happening—the vampire protagonist was curious to be a camgirl; the protagonist walking on a street; then a flashback. The creators completely lost me there as I turned every single page. I mean, who’s that headless guy???

Overall, I’m giving this 3 stars because I believe in second chances especially when it comes to books, graphic novels, or comics. I’m sure the creators have more magic in their sleeves and I can’t wait to see more.

Happy reading everyone and don't forget to share the books you've recently read!

Love lots, xx
