Vampblade Season 2 #2

Katie Carva is Vampblade, but now when she transforms, the blades are the ones in control… and the blades are really f$%#@d up! Consequently, so is Katie’s life!!

Ah, comic cons, the big tent events that fans of all sorts look forward to every year. You never know what treasures you’ll find or the guests you could run into. The fun of the con may be the last thing Katie focuses on in issue two of the season season for Vampblade.

Finally making it through the crowd to Artist’s Alley, Katie suddenly starts to randomly transform. She tries to calm down in the solitude of the restroom, only to find herself among more TSDs. The blades are getting harder to control, but she manages to take charge for the moment...

Vampblade Season 2 #1

Born from the mysterious 90’s comic series Vampblade, comic fan, cosplayer, and shop manager Katie Carva must now continue her quest to fight the invisible other-dimensional vampires from the comics, while the blades push her to all new extremes! It’s all new next-level Vampblade adventures, shiny and chrome!

I was admittedly a little worried that we might have to wait a while for this new season. Lucky for me and all of you fellow fans, it’s already here for our enjoyment. So let’s not delay and just get right into the first issue of Vampblade starting off her Season number two.

After a nice little “here’s what’s been happening”, we go directly into Katie aka Vampblade going berserk on a plane and dooming everyone...

Vampblade #12

This is it!!! It’s time for our blade-wielding heroine to reveal another all-new costume… and conclude her first year as the other-dimensional space vampire huntress by night (and comic shop owner by day)! Will super-geek Katie Carva survive and continue on as the Vampblade, or will someone new pick up the mantle?!?

No, say it isn’t so! Is this really the end for Katie aka Vampblade?! After what I’d say was a very successful run, it is the end of this first series at least. The twelfth issue of Vampblade is only concluding year one, but it does with quite a bang.

Our resident alien vamp slayer Katie goes up against a foe she can barely stand up to. This all changes when she dons another Vampblade costume and completely turns the tables...

Vampblade #11

As Katie’s search for the new Vampblade costume continues, will one giant blade give this warrior angel enough nerve to take on the latest and greatest other-dimensional foe?!? It’s Vampblade 2.0 – harder, faster, stranger!!!

This series has always been a blast from the very beginning and is still going strong. This current arc has really added in some flavor with all the pop culture references and homages. Issue number eleven of Vampblade continues to throw them in and I’m sure it won’t let up.

Using stealth with both her Vampblade suit and clothes she finds, Katie makes her way into the vamp building. Unfortunately, she finds nothing and plays the waiting game, including a rather awkward encounter with a guard...

Vampblade #9+10

Now that Katie’s figured out she can control the appearance of the Vampblade costume, its time for an all new look inspired by one of her favorite comic books! She’s still got two blades and a thirst for TSD’s (translucent space d!@#s – aka space vampires), but now she’s rockin’ a crazy mercenary vibe too!! Features 3 regular and risqué variants showcasing the all new Vampblade costume!!

As long as it’s done right, I enjoy whenever a title can work in some sort of reference or homage to another piece of pop culture. Even just the slightest mention, or sometimes a straight out visual reference are always fun to spot. In issues nine and ten of Vampblade, we get to see a little of that amusing crossover with our favorite space vampire hunter.

Since she took on the reigns as Vamp...
