If this issue is anything to go by, then the search promises to be an exciting journey. But what's more promising is seeing the creative team utilize classic archetypes and continue to build a horrific and remarkable take on the vampire genre.

Undiscovered Country #18

Jan 11, 2022

Undiscovered Country#18 is an action-packed conclusion to a memorable zone in the story so far.
