Vampires stalk the streets of Detroit in Corktown. In the second issue we get to see just how our main character, Torrie, found herself among the insidious undead.
As Torrie watches her former partner trying to solve the mystery behind the string of brutal murders plaguing Detroit we watch as both characters reflect on what happened to the now spectral detective. The two officers were in pursuit of a dangerous man, when Torrie was attacked from behind. Once she died something very strange happened to her and to her recently deceased body. While Torrie has been trying to adjust to her knew state of being, she wishes she could help close this case. Will she find a way to reveal everything to her partner? How many others will fall victim to the vampires of Detroit? You’ll just have to keep reading Corktown to find out.
What I love about this series is the new take on vampire lore. Torrie is trapped outside of herself and forced to watch her body commit vile acts that she can’t stop. While there are vampires with souls in Buffy the Vampire Slayer or killers with a conscious in things like Moonlight, it was on CBS and if you like Corktown you should track it down, this is the first time I have seen a soul forced to watch as their body became a vampire. This latest issue really helped to flesh out just how the division between body and spirit happens within the Corktown universe.
