There is a new vampire comic series on the horizon and it comes from three highly admired names in the comic industry. Twin Brazilian brothers Gabriel Bá and Fábio Moon and Hellboy creator Mike Mignola have joined for B.P.R.D.: Vampire #1. On sale March 27, the first issue begins the five-part quest of Simon Anders – an agent of the Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense – to take revenge on a clan of vampires for cursing him with a psychic burden that he fears will be his undoing.
“After the horrific events of B.P.R.D.: 1948, we follow one doomed agent’s quest for revenge against a clan of vampires and their Gorgon-eyed queen Hecate.”
- From the pages of Hellboy!
- A direct sequel to the critically acclaimed B.P.R.D.: 1948!
- From the Eisner Award-winning creators of Daytripper!
The folks over at Comics Alliance recently chatted with the twins on the project, asking, “It’s been a year since Anders was cursed by the vampire sisters. What can you tell us about his state of mind when Vampire begins? What kind of man has he become?”
According to Gabriel, “We knew that the vampires trapped inside Simon would haunt him, begin to disturb his sleep, change him. But we didn’t want to show these changes happening gradually — we try never to explain feelings too much. We wanted to tell a story that would take place a little after all this has started, when there’s no turning back and something smells bad in the air, but we don’t really know what in the beginning. Something is just off. And that’s when John Arcudi saved our lives and wrote B.P.R.D.: 1948, and everything we needed to link B.P.R.D: 1947 and our story was there. And that’s the amazing thing about working with Mike on the Hellboy universe. Arcudi, Fábio and I just needed to know that something was wrong with Simon and that he would become a problem, a troubled man. Everything worked its way after that, without Arcudi and us having to discuss anything.”
