It’s Halloween again, and in honor of this cherished month, Comic Booked brings you a special edition of Web Comics Wednesday. Well, that’s not entirely true… We’re bringing you an entire month of special editions. For our first Halloween Edition of WCW, we are showcasing the most popular of the undead creatures. Make way for the VAMPIRES!
If you’re new to this, here’s the scoop: Each Wednesday we will showcase five indie web comics. Each will be categorized and will be judged by ART, STORY and APPEAL. This will give you an opportunity to support indie artists and the amazing work they do.
This weeks comics will explore VAMPIRES. Without further ado, let’s GO!:
Comic: School Bites
Story & Art: Holly G.
About: How does a sweet girl learn to become a groovy vampire?! What all good ghouls do…go to Vampire School! Join Cherri Creeper and her friends in their first adventure at the Shadow Academy.
Just think of Degrassi High with Fangs or Harry Potter meets Anne Rice.
Comic: Love Is In The Blood
Story: Greg Carter
Art: Elliot Dombo
About: Laila McCarthy appears to be an ordinary professor of ancient cultures. In a world that is changing too quickly, she has lost touch with her warrior past as Sumerian demon Lamashtu, the first vampire. Will facing old enemies return her to her old ways?
The past will bite you.
Comic: Biff The Vampire
Story & Art: Erik Amill
About: Biff is new to the U.S., fresh from Romania. He has to make his way in a land that he doesn’t quite understand along with work, life and dealing with his roommate/landlord.
Think the old TV comedy “Perfect Strangers” with a dash of Anna Rice.
Comic: Vampire Cheerleaders
Story: Adam Arnold
About: The Bakertown High School cheerleading squad has a secret: behind all their pretty makeup and short skirts are five hungry vampires who sure know how to show their school spirit!
Vampire Cheerleaders is presented in full page, black & white “manga” format and reads right-to-left (Japanese style) to keep it consistant with Aoi House and other Seven Seas series. Together with Paranormal Mystery Squad, the two series form a shared universe, so don’t be too surprised to see your favorite characters popping up for a quick cameo!
