Debuting at Halloween ComicFest and in the pages of Zombie Tramp, the co-writer and artist of Zombie Tramp unleash breakout character Vampblade in her own all-new ongoing series!
When a young comic shop employee is transformed by mystical blades into a walking talking (and slicing & dicing) 90s comic book bad girl, she must quickly learn how to survive the new grotesque world the blades reveal. Now, other-dimensional parasites hidden all around us resembling the "space vampires" from the 90s comic, Vampblade, are all too real, and out for her blood!
Features regular and incentive "homage", "booty", artist, "90s cheesecake", and "goo" more

    Outright Geekery - Aubrey Douglas Feb 4, 2016

    Overall, this was a fun and entertaining book. The writing was good, the artwork mixed well with the writing, and the characters and creatures were drawn in a way that complemented each other. This is a story worth reading. There are some parts that involve nudity, but they are not present for very long. If this doesn't bother you, then I would say give this book a shot, because the story is definitely worth your time. Read Full Review

    The art is a little cartoon-ish for my taste, but oddly enough that works in its favor. Than again they manage to feature odd worm like, with large pincers, so what do I know. If you look closely you notice recreations of various comic book covers in the early panels. Some of the serious are well known, others are quite the opposite. Read Full Review

    Horror Talk - James Ferguson Feb 11, 2016

    Vampblade is just getting started. There's more than enough here to pique my interest and continue to check it out to see where it goes next. At the very least, I definitely want to check out the character's other appearance in the recent Zombie Tramp vs Vampblade trade paperback. This comic takes place before that story. Read Full Review

    This issue is a good introduction to the character and leaves some mystery for future issues. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Steven E. Paugh Feb 3, 2016

    As she collapses in the postcoital bliss that follows her nerdgasm of wish fulfillment, it becomes just as impossible to take Vampblade seriously, as it is not to enjoy it. And in that way, it has something else in common with Ms. Marvel: they both explore empowerment and the ability to feel comfortable with whatever skin you find yourself in. Of course, instead of heavy-handed, feel-good life lessons about racial and religious tolerance, we get piercing leather-clad nut kicks, nipple chains and nigh-bare butts. To-may-to, to-mah-to, though, am I right? Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Dawn of Comics Feb 3, 2016

    There are no hidden themes or insightful learnings, it's a naked woman cutting people up, if you've ever read Witchblade and thought 'this could be skankier' then this book is for you, maybe it's meant to be a sillier version of Withblade, a satire on the ridiculous idea that a woman needs to be wearing next to nothing to sell books.
