    1. One of the best things about my job is when my boss wants me to read and write a review about a certain book that I never intended to read but thoroughly enjoyed. (Let me tell you, I have read some stiiiiiinkers!!) Anyways, I was minding my own business, surfing the web and reading anything besides the stack of papers and documents sitting next to me, when my boss ambled over and set PINOCCHIO: VAMPIRE SLAYER on my keyboard. (He has a problem with subtly.) I looked up from the screen and broke m [...]

    2. I soured on vampires before vampires were cool, back in the early '90s. But how could I resist picking this up? The premise is amazing, even if you're not a vampire-phile. The art is wonderful, with a razor-edged Disney feel. The characters were good, but I didn't find myself too vested in any of them. Pinocchio himself has a lot of potential, though, and I'd like to see what is done with him in future volumes. There is a touch of post-modern angst throughout, which could be milked to good effec [...]

    3. Introduction: Alright, so when I was browsing through my library looking for some good fairy tale books to read, I stumbled upon this unknown graphic novel series called “Pinocchio Vampire Slayer.” Now, when I saw the title, I was thinking to myself: “Cool, Vampire Slayers and Fairy Tale characters; two of my most favorite subjects in the entire world!” So, I just had to check this graphic novel out and man was I so surprised by the interesting premise of this graphic novel!What is this [...]

    4. Pinocchio, Vampire Slayer. Seriously? Is this trend still going – fairy tale characters turned “dark”? Even Jane Austen’s been infected with zombies and a historical figure like Abraham Lincoln has been reimagined as a vampire hunter! Shrek, Fables, Manifest Destiny, Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters, Snow White and the Huntsman, Red Riding Hood, Grimm, Wicked, and a zillion other movies/TV shows/books have done this idea to death. Guys: let it die! What’s next: Old Mother Hubbard pulli [...]

    5. I know celebrity vampire slaying is all the rage now, but Pinocchio? Seriously?Turns out, when it comes to vanquishing the undead, he's a natural! He just breaks off his wooden nose, and VOILA - INSTANT STAKE!Illustrated in a frenetic black & white style that varies from childlike, almost stick-figure drawings to a lovely old world woodcut look, this book briefly covers the original Pinocchio tale, and then just goes to town from there. Purists will, I'm sure, not be happy to see yet another [...]

    6. Flix'in Don Kişot'undan beri okuduğum en "farklı" şeydi. Ki bunu iyi anlamda söylüyorum. Gerçi iki kitabın arasındaki benzerlikler ikisinin de siyah-beyaz olması ve bir roman kahramanını konu almasıyla sınırlı. Pinokyo'nun mizahi yanları daha sınırlı, hikâyesi daha karamsar ve karanlık masalsı.Ünlü masalın nasıl sona erdiğini, Pinokyo'nun gerçek bir çocuğa dönüşüp babası Gepetto'yla sonsuza dek mutlu mesut yaşadığını hepimiz biliriz. Ama meğerse işin as [...]

    7. Pinocchio is all grown up (well, sort of,) and has found honest work, and a never-ending supply of wait for it vampire killing stakes. Oh, I guess you got that part from the title and cover art? So the hook is obvious, Pinocchio, the wooden boy of the original story, finds his purpose in life when he accidentally discovers that his nose is a danger to bloodsucking fiends who have moved into his village. The art is bold and starkly drawn, not usually my favorite artistic style, but it just works [...]

    8. Odlicna ideja, lep art i to je to.Nazalost prica ima previse rupa i puno nelogicnosti u akcijama da bi nas stvarno uvukla u svet na neko duze vreme. Nije nista jako lose i imam nameru da procitam sledeci deo ali sam opet dosta razocaran.Ali Pinokio je postao badass tako da i to je nesto.

    9. First thing I thought when I saw this comic: wooden puppet meets vampires - oh no. I knew the nose had to be the stake the first I heard it, but even then, it still sounded hilarious. Yet, Pinocchio: Vampire Slayer has both a humorous element and tragic element to it that made it cursedly appealing. It relies much on the original tale of Pinocchio (i.e. not the Disney version), with dark, pointed humor as sharp as Pinocchio's nose (no pun intended). Pinocchio's journey has him protecting his vil [...]

    10. Let’s face it. The current literary market is so glutted with novels about vampires and the people who kill them that the walking undead have gotten to be a deadly bore. Tween romances, perky blonde cheerleaders with stakes, vampire diaries, geeks pretending to be vamps—enough already!Therefore, when I saw this book I didn’t have high hopes for it and nearly passed by it in favor of more substantial fare. But the idea of a little wooden boy attacking and killing vampires was…intriguing. [...]

    11. Despite being a quick read I was bored. This just didn't work for me. There was absolutely nothing creative about it, nothing unique. The story goes exactly where you think it will just by looking at the title. Not only did this have an overly predictable plot, but it was also visually boring. I found the art style unattractive and often difficult to decipher.

    12. The recap in the beginning of the book had me cracking up, then the actual story kind of mellowed. I enjoyed it mostly, but then felt like it rushed to the ending, I now know that there is a part 2 coming out, but I think the book worked fine as a book on its own if they had left more time for the ending. Good, quick, fun read for a car ride though.

    13. This book was so weird, but in a good way. The only drawback for me was the art. It was a little too simplistic, or maybe not clear enough. I'm not sure how to describe it. I would recommend this if you are looking for something a little bit different.

    14. I dare you to look me in the eye and tell me you wouldn't pick this up if you stumbled upon it. Come on, Pinocchio as a vampire slayer? You know you'd be intrigued! Well, whether you agree with me or not, the fact remains that I was definitely drawn in by the idea. I'm a sucker for a good retelling, especially in graphic novel format. Did it deliver? In some ways yes, in others no. Read on my friends, I'll lay it all out for you.As with any good graphic novel review, I'll start with the illustra [...]

    15. “Çünkü masalsı sonlar da bir yere kadardır.”Ünlü Pinokyo masalın nasıl sona erdiğini, tahtadan yapılma kahramanımızın iyiliklerinin mükafatı olarak Mavi Peri tarafından gerçek bir çocuğa dönüştürüldüğünü ve babası Geppetto’yla sonsuza dek mutlu mesut yaşadığını hepimiz biliriz. Ancak bilmediğimiz şey Disney’in meşhur çizgi filmiyle akıllarımıza kazınan bu hikâyenin aslında kitaptan çok ama çok farklı olduğu. İşte Van Jensen ve Dusty Higg [...]

    17. I came across this title when I was looking for Pinocchio books to read at storytime in the library. Obviously, this was not a suitable choice for the preschoolers. Equally as obvious, I needed to read it myself.The graphic novels starts with an injection to read Collodi's original version of Pinocchio, especially if all you know is the Disney version (which I've long forgotten--did I ever even see it?). The authors even include a little comic version of Collodi's version, just to make sure the [...]

    18. I became excited about this for no apparent reason.I'm writing this review while currently balancing a stack full of books on my knees cuz that's the way we do things. This was surprisingly delightful in the way that a bit of vanilla ice cream makes a fairly burned squashed brownie quite delicious. Having never read the original Pinocchio (though am now absolutely convinced I must based on the quick summary in the beginning of this gn-which kind of has nothing to do with the Disney version CHILD [...]

    19. It's a good concept, I mean Pinocchio has a continual supply of stakes what with his nose and the lies but it just falls flat. The writing goes to Star Wars at the end and the "I am the Walrus" joke is so lame as to be groan worthy. The main problem I had was the illustration style. It wanted to be Mike Mignola, and so wasn't. At times it was kind of woodcut, and that made sense. But seriously, what was with the overuse of halftones? It greyed out the comic and made the panels hard to look at. S [...]

    20. A very weird twist on a classic. He still has the same qualities about telling a lie, while also killing vampires. I wasn't expecting much with this graphic novel. Because things have been so overplayed with horror remakes of classics. This one is a different. Its funny and doesnt seem to take itself too serious.

    21. Great graphic novel from Van Jensen and Dusty Higgins. Who would've thought of combining Pinocchio and Vampirest I! I think what I loved most about this book is the humor as well as the fact that when he lied, he could break off his nose and use it as a stake. C'mon, who can resist that!

    22. Just when you thought that every thing possible was "vampirized" think again. A young customer came and asked me for this book a few weeks ago and I was so intrigued by the concept that I immediately put it on hold. The book is huge and the black and white images lend a very realistic edge to the work. Basically the story is that Pinocchio has discovered that in addition to having a nose that grows whenever he lies he can also kill vampires- and in his small town in medieval Italy there are lots [...]

    23. What will they think of next?In all honesty, I quite enjoyed this comic. I thought it was interesting and innovative how the creators transformed Carlo Collodi's famous book into this. It is defined as a sequel, to be sure, but it is stated in the very beginning how much respect the creators have for the original. They even included their version of a summary of the first book just in case people haven't read it. I loved the artistry, the humor, and the story. Well done.

    24. I really enjoyed this quick read. it's presentation was standard but incredibly expressive in it's black and white sketchings. I try to be well rounded in vampire lore and I loved the Pinocchio storyline. hoping for more volumes. the artist style reminded me of hellboy artists.

    25. I grabbed this book at the library based on the title and cover alone, on the assumption that it would at least be good for a chuckle. At that point, I'd already considered the creators a success for getting such an audacious title published and on the shelves. And then I read it. Twice. And it is brilliant. I read Pinocchio when I was a young teenager. I haven't met many other people who have read it. I've never met anyone who said they particularly like it. Perhaps I had a bad translation. I d [...]

    26. This is the complete review as it appears at my blog dedicated to reading, writing (no 'rithmatic!), movies, & TV. Blog reviews often contain links which are not reproduced here, nor will updates or modifications to the blog review be replicated here. Graphic and children's novels reviewed on the blog will generally have some images from the book's interior, which are not reproduced here.Note that I don't really do stars. To me a novel is either worth reading or it isn't. I can't rate a nove [...]
