The Lobdell, Seagle and Casey runs are also hidden gems, not as good as any of the top three, but they were better than most of what we've had in the last decade. Not sure what to make of Jim Lee's little stint.
Some people are so stupid, in what alternate reality do comic book covers tell you exactly what happens in the story (this being a variant cover, no less) ? Like someone posted above, it's creative liberty, and if you'd read any of BW's interviews, you'd know that she is still a Vampire. Just that he's not letting that define who she is, "think of her as a Mutant but with Vampire powers", he said.
