Debuting at Halloween ComicFest and in the pages of Zombie Tramp, the co-writer and artist of Zombie Tramp unleash breakout character Vampblade in her own all-new ongoing series!
When a young comic shop employee is transformed by mystical blades into a walking talking (and slicing & dicing) 90s comic book bad girl, she must quickly learn how to survive the new grotesque world the blades reveal. Now, other-dimensional parasites hidden all around us resembling the “space vampires” from the 90s comic, Vampblade, are all too real, and out for her blood!
Given how popular she was paired with Zombie Tramp, it was really only a matter of time before this solo title arrived for all of us to enjoy. In fact, reading the end of this launch book, she’s got more of a history than most of us realized. Now that it’s here, let’s not delay any further and talk about the first ongoing issue of Vampblade.
Like you’d expect from her first solo issue, we get to see the origins of the badass we know as Vampblade. When mobsters enter the comic book store she worked at and kills the owner, she grabs the twin blade replicas of her namesake comic character. It is then we first see her transformed, the blades taking over and giving her the power to kick human and space vampire ass.
For those somehow and unfortunately not familiar with this world, be prepared for some killer artwork. Take that in both the sense that it’s great art, and that there’s almost always more than a serving of gory scenes. Oh, and don’t forget the T&A, which again there’s typically some of, so definitely not a work appropriate title.
While my heart will always be with my favorite zombie girl, this first issue of Vampblade gives me hope for this series as well. I’m really glad to see that we are going to be getting a regular appearance, and enjoyed this opening round. This is going to be another fun book to follow and you should definitely grab this book first chance you can. Good luck getting all the variants!
