Top Cow sent us word of their new series (which we’ve been teasing at conventions for those who were paying attention) titled Impaler, the first issue of which hits comic stores Wednesday, Dec. 17. Impaler is a vicious horror tale that takes what you know about Dracula and turns it on its ear. What if humanity’s only savior from a horde of voracious vampires is none other than Vlad the Impaler himself? The terrifying story that began in the Impaler, Volume 1 trade paperback continues with a new ongoing series from Top Cow.
Here’s some plot for ya; Millions of vampires have descended upon America. In a desperate bid to defeat them, the U.S. military nuked New York City but unfortunately, it was too little, too late. The vampire horde had already advanced westward, but how far? A team of soldiers sent to rescue a politician’s plane that crash-landed in New Jersey find out the hard way. Humanity’s only chance may rest in the hands of vampire hunter Vlad the Impaler and his new companion, a depressed New York City detective who wishes he was dead.
