Comments: The inside cover artwork is pretty col and gives you the team members so you know who and what they are. A golem, a werewolf, a vampire and one cute witch.
A government facility is under attack so who do they call as reinforcements. The Night Patrol a team of four monsters. Hestor, Melvin, Poe and The Golem are shown in flash backs. This comic does jump back and forth in time a lot.
Melvin and Poe both share something in common they both care about Hester. Both werewolf and vampire are drawn in battle as savage creatures but the Golem is brutal.
The comic is full of battle action as creatures of the night fight it out. There are a few surprises to. Seeing the government using monsters instead of soldiers is all well.
Hester rarely uses her magic. Having her fighting with it would have been better rather than her fighting without it and seeming like the powerless female that needs rescuing. Than she complains about getting rescued. Better had she foght more and instead of just once used her magic more.
The art looks great and showcases these creatures to good effect. Each monsters uniqueness is brought out in the art. Plus we see the monstrous side to them as well.
Monsters Rule!

Comments: The art needs more focus and details. The art is to vague. The close-ups are done better.
The story drags on until finally the witch, vampire, werewolf and golem all start working together. They face an army of zombies. The action is way to short lived and takes to long to get to it.
Night Corpse the vampire is drawn flying and fighting the zombies it is a cool scene. The werewolf is a creature of feral natural.
The use of these nightmare creatures as a team works. The witch needed to be more involved and the Cap. needs to lead more.
The savageness of these creatures needs to be brought out more. The Golem is there but his power and strength and destructive nature should be shown more.
The monsters do make one monstrous squad. They are a good blending of various creatures thought to be evil but here they on the side of the angels.
