 In UNDYING LOVE, Tomm Coker and Daniel Freedman give readers a glimpse of one man's crusade against a vampiric underworld. With lots of blood. 

 The hero of the comic (who either isn't named or I never caught it) moves relentlessly through his mission to draw out the leader of the clan. As a result of his actions we see that he has a mighty challenge ahead of him.  

 Surprisingly, it was a challenge that lasted most of the issue. There were a few times where it took way too many panels to progress the story forward and some scenes (and characters) lingered for far too long. Even the best moment in the book where the kid is making the tea and explaining some of the key elements of the tale could have been made shorter. 

 Coker's art, which is like a mix of Tommy Lee Edwards and Alex Maleev, was thoroughly enjoyable. Between the city scenes, the vampires and the gun toting vigilante we get a great sampling of what he is capable of. He shows real talent and I would love to see more from him. However, I felt that it was wasted on this comic. Not because of the choice in subject matter since he does a very good job with what we see here but because the story doesn't meet the same level. 

 I never really connected with the main character and the only interesting person was the kid. Otherwise, there was no real concern. Yes, the star of the book struggled, met strong opposition and had to rise above it. But why? At times it just came across as nothing more than a stylish attempt at a "Punisher vs. Dracula" story. With style heavily outweighing substance. 

 The visuals were fantastic but without a more solid pacing UNDYING LOVE seemed about as drained as one of the vampire's victims.
