Synopsis: Revenage: Three hundred years ago the Sorcerer Kalutika Maybus sealed the vampire Deshwitat in limbo after killing his fiancee, Lilith. For centuries, Deshwitat's mind calculated revenge while his body slumbered...until now. A band of spiritual investigators has inadvertently broken the seal that binds him and released Deshwitat to the world. Redemption: A lot has changed since the 17th century. Carriages have been replaced by cars, the Internet connects the world, and vampires have become the stuff of legends. But beneath the veneer of technology, magic and religion still reign supreme. Kalutika is the most powerful person in the world, although few actually know he exists. Prophecy foretold that Kalutika would destroy the Earth. Deshwitat's quest is now not just one of revenge, but of redemption...for himself, and the world. Rebirth: Joined by an excommunicated exorcist and a spiritual investigator orphaned by his fangs, Deshwitat begins his bloodquest. The hunted is now the hunter.
From Publishers Weekly:
Since the only way to enjoy this title is to refuse to take any aspect of it seriously, readers can relax and chortle gleefully as they appreciate how the story and art work together in perfectly awful absurdity. In 1641, Romanian sorcerer Kalutika Maybus went insane and turned on his friend, the vampire Deshwitat, whom he paralyzed and sealed inside the body of a monster. Now, a group of scientists arrives on the scene to investigate paranormal activity and, as most of them are being killed by the monster, one sacrifices his life to protect his teenaged daughter by freeing the vampire. Meanwhile, a beautiful blonde exorcist also arrives, too late to help the humans but just in time to battle the vampire. The sensuously glowering vampire intends to keep his oath to the dead man, but he also wants revenge on Kalutika, preferably before the latter finishes his scheme to destroy Earth. Complementing the story, the art is active but incoherent. Adolescent male readers may enjoy panels showing the buxom exorcist wielding a crucifix while wearing a costume that looks like a teddy with a cape; bondage fans may enjoy the panels that show the exorcist and the teenaged girl writhing in the monsters' grip. This scene seems to go on forever, page after page of the characters talking endlessly as they struggle to break loose. There are a few hints that Woo knows how silly the whole thing is, but not enough to make this work more than cult entertainment for the audience that hooted at Plan Nine from Outer Space.
