Vampblade Sets Out on New Series


Vampblade is a new character drawing upon familiar inspirations. She first appeared in an Action Lab crossover with Zombie Tramp, co-headlining the book Zombie Tramp vs. Vampblade miniseries. Now, the Jason Martin created character illustrated by WInston Young will get her own series. Fans and retailers will get an early look at the new series when it debuts at this year’s Halloween Comicfest, with Action Lab: Danger Zone's HCF offering, Vampblade Featuring Zombie Tramp. The book will feature an extended preview of the first issue of Vampblade, as well as a brand new Zombie Tramp story by creator Dan Mendoza.

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 fictional 90s comic, Vampblade, are all too real, and out for her blood!

Vampblade #1 is in this month’s Previews catalog (Diamond order code: NOV151004) and is set to ship in January 2016. Issue one will feature seven variant covers by series artist Young, TMChu, Mendoza, Jerry Gaylord and a special “90s Cheesecake” Risqué variant cover by Andrew Mangum. Retailer exclusive covers are also available; please contact your Diamond representative. Full press release below.
