Dave Miller is not your average convenience store employee. The Last Stop is frequented by Goths who want to be vampires while Dave begrudgingly knows all too well what it means to un-live. When he falls for Rosa, a beautiful and dynamic girl who romanticizes immortality, his un-life gets more complicated as he competes against a rival vampire for her affections. Life Sucks goes the way of love stories everywhere, Dave must protect Rosa from who he is while winning her over. This is not your average vampire story, this is an action packed tale about a boy fighting adversity for the love of a strong woman.
Co-written by renowned graphic novelist Jessica Abel, it is no wonder why the dialogue is spot on. Both she and Gabe Soria capture the nuances of conversation, quarrel, and expression. Warren Pleece’s nighttime Los Angeles is illustrated in a way that brings the freeways, parking lots, and beaches to life.
