Reading: Bloodborne – the healing thirst (#5 -8)

Bloodborne #5 by Aleš Kot

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


This reveiw is for issues 5 to 8, the story arc of ‘the healing thirst’.

Now I loved the first 4 issues so much, that I bought this without even thinking. The art is just as beautiful, and the lore just as integrated. And I absolutely loved specific parts of this story arc. I did however not like it as much as the first arc. I don’t know, I think that they could have made some different choices, and encorporated more of the characters we know from the game. But this is just a problem I have with many stories inspired from a different media – we don’t read it to get a story in the universe, we read it to have our need for lore expanded upon and to see characters we know and love.

I will however recommend this, since it is a damn good comic – and does expand on the lore, and is engaging from the first page.
