Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
This second volume in the series sees a vengeance-obsessed Pinocchio joined in his quest to rid the world of vampires and their mysterious, off-stage master by a troupe of similarly magically animated puppets. The vampires are themselves obsessed with Pinocchio and possibly in possession of information that Pinocchio himself lacks about the origin of the magical wood used to make the puppet. While vulnerable to Pinocchio and his fellow puppets' wooden weapons, the vampires have the advantage of numbers and the ability to easily convert Pinocchio's human friends into monsters like themselves. As allies fall or are converted, Pinocchio oversteps and is faced with the consequences of a marvelous but inconvenient transformation. Higgins's art does a nice job of capturing the story and creating strong characters. Although inflicting the current fad for adding vampires and other undead to the settings of classic works of literature may annoy some, the original Pinocchio was itself both fantastic and filled with nightmare fuel; this is one of the few examples of this new genre that is arguably justifiable. (Nov.)
VOYA - Mirta Espinola
The second volume of Pinocchio, Vampire Slayer follows a cast of puppets, a ghost cricket, and a human girl, Carlotta, to battle to destroy the head vampire and his associates. With an enraged disposition, Pinocchio, the main character, plots to avenge his father Geppetto's death. His former ally, Master Cherry, now a vampire, is killed by Pinocchio's hand when Cherry cannot dominate his thirst for blood. In a fit of sorrow and fury over Cherry's death, the Blue Fairy casts a spell transforming Pinocchio into a human boy—rendering him virtually defenseless against the vampires. His wooden nose once wielded as a sword for slaying vampires is no more. Amidst the chaos, Pinocchio's love interest, Carlotta, is kidnapped by vampires who are set to sail to Romania. Determined to rescue Carlotta, the puppets and Pinocchio stow away on a pirate ship en route to Romania as well. After laying siege to the vampire ship, all but three puppets meet their demise. Fortunately, Pinocchio escapes with his life, but Carlotta remains imprisoned on the ship. Higgins and Jensen craft a heartfelt hero story with twists of comedy, wit, and camaraderie. With a blend of horror and fantasy, the graphic novel unfolds layers of a unique story in comic book form. The vibrant characters breathe to life a tale that connects with readers of multiple ages. With a splash of romance and distinctive artistic quality, the story leads readers to the end of Pinocchio, Vampire Slayer Volume 2: The Great Puppet Theater and leaves them anticipating the continuation of the story.
