If you are looking for a stand alone graphic novel to try as a way of testing Moonstone's Vampire: The Masquerade run this book is an excellent place to start. Calebros is a frustrated academic cast into the role of overwhelmed bureaucrat. While he's trying his best at keeping the city from crumbling into chaos his own mind is beginning to unravel from within.
Calebros is an engaging protagonist and the story does an excellent job exploring his identity.The has tension, mystery, and some exciting payoffs. I genuinely would like to know more about the character.
The price of less than $7 dollars is a reasonable rate for the print. It is cheaper than many of the other world of darkness books, although this due to it being in black and white. If you want a low risk entry into the collection it would be hard to find a better book.
