When a go-go dancer on the local Detroit area rave scene gets hired to work a private penthouse party downtown for a bunch of dot-com billionaires, it turns out there’s more than just designer drugs being passed around the party… it’s actually ground zero for a hidden other-dimensional invasion!

Features three pairs of regular and risqué 90s style covers:


Take a trip back to the late 90’s, when everyone obsessed over Y2K, and “bad girl” books were the biggest thing in comics! One obscure book turned out to be real– the sexy nocturnal exploits of its titular vampire-slaying character weren’t tales of science-fiction, but chronicles of a hidden reality. Relive the cult classic story of Vampblade… for the very first time!
