Writers Jessica Abel ("La Perdida") and Gabe Soria de-romanticize the vampire genre by sticking the mostly apathetic Dave in the night shift in a Los Angeles convenience store. Pleece's idiosyncratic style gives "Life Sucks" a modern, realistic feel while combining the necessary B-movie vampire elements. In the midst of many in-progress projects, Warren Pleece found the time to speak with CBR News about "Incognegro" and "Life Sucks," as well as the other work he's presently tackling

A description of tropes appearing in Life Sucks. Life Sucks is written by Jessica Abel and Gabe Soria and illustrated by Warren Pleece. Advertisement: This comic provides examples of: Be Careful What You Wish For: Rosa gets Wes to turn her into a vampire, but then she has to follow all of his commands. After Dave gets Radu to make Wes free her, she has to get a night job and get all of her dreams about what life as a vampire would be like crushed.

Life sucks for Dave Marshall.

The girl he's in love with doesn't know he exists, he hates his job, and ever since his boss turned him into a vampire, he can't go out in daylight without starting to charbroil.

Undead life in its uncoolest incarnation yet is on display in this cinematic, supernatural drama told with gallons of humor and hemoglobin. In striking, colorful, B-movie sty;e artwork and light-hearted, intelligent writing by Jessica Abel, Gabe Soria, and Warren Pleece, Dave Marshall's story comes alive – in a vampiric kind of way.

I'm a fan of Jessica Abel's other work, particularly "La Perdida" which I think has a lot of soul and really captures something essential about the main character. Unfortunately this tale of an underachiever vampire doesn't come close. Not sure exactly what happened, maybe the idea sounded good at the outline stage but by the end this comic doesn't exactly know what it wants to be. A kind of vampire soap opera maybe? Anyway, if you're an Abel fan then please do get it and support her work, otherwise start with some of her other work.

Funny, unique in the sense that it completely un-glamorizes vampires. The main character is one of a few vampires who were "recruited" (bitten during what they thought was normal interviews) into vampiredom only to serve as clerks at 711 type shops for the older vampires. Relatable to young people in terms of awkwardness, working menial jobs, and trying to find honest ways to be with a person they like. Artwork was not fancy but good and vivid. My only complaint is that the main character's love interest is kind of airheaded.
Lightbinder
Cute story, some what graphic. Classic story of a misfit young adult with a crush, has the added appeal of vampires. A more down to earth look at realistic vampires.

I found this book interesting.

Hilarious and true-to-life.

It was an interesting look into the life of vampires who aren't rich, but everyday folks trying to make ends meet.

It's Blair Witch Project bad. Was really glad it ended. Thoroughly annoyed we own it.
Life sucks is the anti-vampire romance story. It takes the whole 'glamorous' side of the mythology and turns it on its head - creating real, grounded, and frustrated characters living mundane immortality.

Dave is a night shift clerk at a convenience store. He's also a vampire - turned by the owner when Dave applied for a position. Now, stuck in a boring job, he finds himself fascinated by a goth girl who herself is fascinated by vampires. Does Dave tell her the truth to try to win her over?

I found this completely fascinating. Our hero is best described as a dork, the other vampires are selfish, petty, or self serving despite their immortality and powers, and the customers at the convenience store are quirky in a quite believable way. The goth girls/guys are shown to be shallow and more interested in playacting than any real drama. And the vampire lords play cards in an old basement with a trophy fish on the wall.

The vampire angle is really a red herring here. This is a story about appearances, honesty, and finding your way in life. As such, it is a compelling read full of intricate plot points. It's also a thick book and there is a lot here to digest.
