After such an original and entertaining first volume, I expected a lot from this instalment. However, I can't help feeling a tiny bit let down. International Flavour got off on a good start and all in all it's not a bad volume but I had a problem with it. Out of a sudden, there was a vampire in the story. Now, normally I don't have problems with vampires but where did he suddenly come from? It felt very out of place. I do have high hopes that this question will have a satisfying answer in the next volumes, as I'm sure there is a perfectly disgusting answer to it. Furthermore, I would have liked to see more of Mason. It felt a bit off focus from the first volume but I'm sure this will be resolved in later volumes as well. 

Ultimately, I gave this comic 4 out of 5 stars! And I still highly recommend this series to anyone! Read it!
