Vaughan & Chiang's "Paper Girls" Builds a Familiar Yet Disconcerting World
Dark Horse revealed today at New York Comic Con that it will publish Bad Blood, a five-issue vampire story by Bram Stoker Award-winning author Jonathan Maberry and Eisner Award-winning artist Tyler Crook (B.P.R.D., Petrograd).
“Bad Blood tells the story of Trick, a teenage slacker on the losing side of a fight with cancer,” Maberry, author of Ghost Road Blues, said in a statement. “When he’s attacked by a vampire, he figures it’s game over. Except that the chemo drugs in Trick’s blood poison the vampire. As punishment, the vampires begin slaughtering everyone Trick loves. So he goes hunting for the vamps to try to destroy them. His only superpower? The chemo drugs in his system are deadly to the undead. His only ally? A heroin-addicted Goth chick. Bad Blood brings the pain in a downbeat tale of heartbreak, loss, and courage.”
Bad Blood debuts Jan. 1.
