By E. A Solinas HALL OF FAMETOP 10 REVIEWER on June 5 2010
Format: Hardcover
It took more than ten issues, but at long last Anita Blake does something other than talk. Unfortunately, most of what she actually does in "Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter: The Laughing Corpse Book 3 - Executioner" is completely worthless -- our allegedly buttkicking heroine seems to spend most of the ending of the story getting kicked around.

While the police check Dominga's basement, Anita sits on a couch and trades threats with the old lady. But there's something much nastier in the suburban neighborhood -- a zombie who attacks her in short order, and has to be wasted by a couple guys with flamethrowers. I'm so impressed by her awe-inspiring fighting skills. Why do they call her the "executioner" again?

But there's still one other bad guy to be dealt with -- Harold Gaynor, who intends to have Anita raise his preferred zombie whether she likes it or not. And he's in league with Dominga, who has raised an unholy horror to attack Anita -- but of course, Anita pulls her magically delicious necromantic powers out of her hat.

I'll give Laurell K Hamilton credit -- there are some brief moments where Anita Blake actually manages to kick butt, usually by beating someone with a chair or poking them in the eye. And there's a brief moment of awesomeness at the very end when we finally see Anita doing something really gross and weird with zombies.

Unfortunately, all parts of the story that DON'T involve actual fighting are pathetically boring -- Anita seems to spend most of the story standing around chitchatting or getting her butt kicked. The dialogue is simply awful ("What are you doing?" "Raising the dead, Dominga") and Hamilton still doesn't quite know how comics work (waaaayyyyy too much dialogue).

Beautiful Rendering July 1 2013
By K. Click - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This graphic novel version of Anita Blake's adventures is everything you'd hope for artistically and contextually. A fun read with some really great art for those who haven't entered Laura K. Hamilton's supernatural universe.

What an incredible thing to have the stories you 'thought' you knew and loved played out in graphic form! The scenery and images around the action i've become so familiar with were refreshing and very unexpected... I'm hooked on this series and plan to read all of them!
