Under the Net

Under the Net with Jake Estrada

Dr. Death vs. The Vampire

Welcome to the 16th edition of Under the Net.  

I will be rating the elements of the book on a scale of one through five.

One is poor, two is mediocre, three is fair, four is good, and five is excellent.

Hey everyone, I hope you are having fun. I am doing well, and today I am presenting Dr. Death vs the Vampire. It is a black and white comic with a color cover.

Written and Drawn by A. Kaviraj

The Art

The art is really good. I enjoyed it tremendously; each face was unique and none were the same. The dynamic of the art allowed the story to flow smoothly. 


The Writing

The writing was very smooth. I liked how Dr. Death was ready to kill the elderly woman and the way he tried to combat a vampire that was trying to outwit him. I liked the simple setting and how the entire story was done in one book in a total of 39 pages.



I liked how the lead character of Dr. Death was just this brash man who was willing to kill and dice his way to the top of the food chain but was not very impulsive, and willing to try to talk to the vampire and see what he wanted. Of course, it was a joy watching Dr. Death overcome the vampire and eventually just kill the fiendish creature.


The Pros

 I enjoyed the dark contrast the pages had and how the story was very self-contained. A person could just jump in and read the book even if he or she never read it and knew very little about the character. The comic was very accessible to new readers and was great as a one-off.
The Cons

One thing that I found difficult to understand was how Dr. Death ultimately killed the vampire. I took it that he poisoned him, but he threw the guy off a cliff as well. Did the vampires die that quickly?

My Final Word

If you want an easy-to-access comic that is simple to read and filled with intrigue and suspense, then give this comic a read. You won’t be sorry as this comic was a quick and great read. J

The comic can be found here:

Enjoy folks!
