What people are saying about Sleigher:

“I can’t recommend this book highly enough for anyone who loves a good bar fight with some whip-smart wit along for the ride.”
(Fanbase Press)

“It’s one of those 90’s flavoured comedy books that manages to shrug off the desperation of some of those bygone Indy books and find its own story.”
(Comic Crusaders)

Sleigher: The Heavy Metal Santa Claus #1 takes a familiar concept and cranks it up to 11.”

Now that Katie’s figured out she can control the appearance of the Vampblade costume, its time for an all new look inspired by one of her favorite comic books! She’s still got two blades and a thirst for TSD’s (translucent space d!@#s – aka space vampires), but now she’s rockin’ a crazy mercenary vibe too!!

Features 3 regular and risqué variants showcasing the all new Vampblade costume!!

32 pgs./ M / FC                   $3.99 (reg.), $4.99 (var.)


What people are saying about Vampblade:

“Violence, gore, brief nudity, and the occasional humorous reference to genitals makes this premiere issue, Vampblade #1, amusing and action-filled.”
(Graphic Policy)

“The writing for this book is fun.”
(Outright Geekery)

“They clearly have fun with the panel work and the colors are just vibrant. It’s a fun ride overall.”
(The Broken Infinite)
