Susan Douglas was married to a man who drank and hit her. Ten years ago, she landed a job as an assistant editor, but she gave that up to fight vampires and magical beings. Now known as Eve, she is in love with a vampire named Ash. She drinks his blood to feel powerful and to forget her nightmares.

Dusk is a self-published horror graphic novel written by David Doub. Drawn entirely in black and white and by three different illustrators including Maki Naro and Jerry Gonzales III, each of the four stories shows Eve living in a world where the undead seem to be everywhere - the bars, the mountains, overseas, even at a high school. She fights in this world of the undead for Ash. He got her away from the vampire Van Kraken and saved her from a life of servitude.

Although I enjoyed some of the scenes in Dusk, such as how heartbeats are incorporated into the story and how a vampire is punished in the third story, others are hard to follow because of crowded speech balloons or poorly worded sentences. At times a lack of information in both the text and the illustrations left me guessing at who was who, and why the characters acted as they did. However, I did enjoy Eveís fighting scenes and the two-page sneak peek of volume two.

The cover of Dusk will catch your eye as it did mine, but unfortunately I didnít get enough out of the book to fully comprehend the characters or the plot.
