    Mila, Andy and Effie’s daughter, has joined Captain Telsa and her first mate Helda in escaping the planet after being hunted down and believing her father was killed by the vamps. While Andy who survived the attack is reunited with the now vamp infected Effie who’s hunger has now taken over her mind and body. As Kanto, the Blood Scrapper is introduced not much is known about this mysterious individual besides being the most badass vampire Hunter in the universe.
    A continuation to Lemire’s epic space Odyssey Descender, flipping the script and introducing us to a universe now enveloped by magic rather then technology like it’s predecessor makes this a compelling, dramatic, heart wrenching story.
