These are not your mother's vampires! You know, the ones she keeps in that steamy romance novel on her nightstand!
Teen angst, sexy shirtless men, endless brooding, statuatory rape, poorly written erotica, sparkles... No, it's not an Outhouse staff writers' retreat! These are the things that have defined vampires for hundreds of years, but in a new digital sampler from Dark Horse, the company is showing off some vampires that are unconventional... and perhaps even scary! It's a novel idea, and we here at Team Edward do hope that it can inject some new unlife into the vampire mythos.
Here's the press release:
