Lost Boys: Reign of Frogs #2 (DC Comics/Wildstorm)
By Hans Rodinoff, Joel Gomez & Jonathan Wayshak

Hans Rodinoff takes a pretty big chance here. It’s always a bit scary when a comic book spin-off messes with the mythology if a movie, as this issue does, but somehow he makes it work. Turns out ol’ David didn’t die after all… well, not permanently… He and a new brood of vampires come after the Frog brothers to seek retribution for their defeat. An old friend shows up to join in the fight, and the quest for the new Head Vampire begins. Rodinoff‘s changes to the myth are actually pretty logical in terms of the movie, and they work pretty well in terms of this comic book, although I would imagine some more fanatical fans of the film may be upset by what’s done here. Fortunately, as only a passing fan, it doesn’t really bother me. Joel Gomez does a really good job with the vampires here — he’s got a good style for a horror comic, and his fights work quite well. His characters don’t really look much like the actors, but that’s preferable to having them look so photorealistic that the artwork suffers, as happens in many adaptations. Overall, it’s not a bad book.
