Vampblade Season 2 #1: All New Costume and Direction!

Wielding other-dimensional blades that allow her to cosplay the perfect costume for any situation, comic shop owner Katie Carva continues her secret fight against the hidden vampiric parasites that threaten mankind in an all new second season of the popular Action Lab: Danger Zone series!

Following season one’s 12 issue run, which wraps up this month, the genre blending mature readers monthly series from creator Jason Martin (Zombie Tramp, Night of the 80s Undead) will resume this March with an all new season two and first issue.

Perfect for fans of Harley Quinn or Ash vs Evil Dead, Vampblade season two gives new readers a great jumping on point, while continuing the kinky and quirky intergalactic parasite slaying story thousands of fans have already grown to love.

Fans were even given the ability to vote for Vampblade’s new costume, which debuts in the first issue! However, along with that new costume comes a new set of challenges for Katie… just as she started to get a handle on her new tumultuous life, season two makes Vampblade harder, faster, shinier!

COVERS AVAILABLE

Writer Jason Martin talks about some of the things we can expect in the second season of Vampblade: It’s really exciting to take what we’ve done with our amazing creative team – including all-pro artistic talents like Winston Young, and Marco Maccagni – and continue that on a larger stage. What’s more, creatively, while our protagonist’s world and supporting cast have been rich, now that Katie’s merged with the Vampblades, this new paradigm in season two will just build and expand on what’s come, yielding ever bigger and crazier situations for our blade brandishing heroine!
