Pinocchio: Vampire Slayer and the Great Puppet Theater

by Van Jensen

Rated: None

by Van Jensen and Dusty Higgins

Following the events in Pinocchio: Vampire Slayer, our hero is bordering on despondent. His personal world has been rocked, and he can feel himself losing his focus. Simultaneously, his old friends and comrades from the Great Puppet Theater (having heard of his exploits) feel the need to seek him out for professional consultation. And, as if he doesn’t have enough to worry about, a girl is coming into his life.

For a puppet, this is a lot of stress. His reputation has functioned to intensify the vampire menace, so his personal problems notwithstanding, he is being hunted by the local demons and their mysterious leader. He and his friends decide to take on the challenge of finding this leader, in an attempt to solve the vampire problem once and for all.

The authors have done a marvelous job providing a continuing saga that is interesting, has well-conceived conflicts and treats classic characters with respect and admiration. This tale ends in a unique cliffhanger, and I am confident that the next installment will not disappoint.

Rated: None. Cartoon violence.
