Getting bitten by a vampire pissed him off. Seeing his best friend brutally slaughtered started a war.

Trick was a typical college student—sort of—until vampires attacked. Then he found out his blood was poison to the bloodsuckers. And Trick will do anything to eradicate them.

* His blood kills!A vampire tale with an unlikely hero!

* Art by Eisner Award–winning Tyler Crook (B.P.R.D., The Sixth Gun, Petrograd).

Trick and Kyle were roommates at college. Before that, they were friends who grew up together and planned on head on to college on football scholarships. Excerpt Trick got tricked—he has cancer. Due to this, when a vampire attacks and bites him, the monster says Trick’s blood is poisoned. Angry, the vampire promises to go after his friends and more, claiming he will be the last one left alive to see all humans dead. Instead of depressing Trick, this enrages him and he decides he will find the vampire and destroy him.

Quite a different hero in this monster tale, and I like him. And I like the premise that his blood is poison to the vampire. The art is superb and I love that this vamp has a mouth of jagged teeth—like the vampires had in the old European legends, not two dainty fangs. I can not wait for the next issue!
