Jeff Lemire and Dustin Nguyen announce ‘Little Monsters’ for March 2022

‘Little Monsters’ is ‘Lord of the Flies’ child vampires.

Jeff Lemire announced via ComicBook.com he and Dustin Nguyen are kicking off a new series called Little Monsters next year. It’s a series Nguyen hinted at on the AIPT Comics podcast last month that involves vampires but is not a horror book.

“It is a book very much grounded in the lives of these children who have, in a way, been trapped in amber. They live an endless life of innocence and games and childhood. It’s a character study of what it would mean to be truly young forever and the things that growing up costs us all,” Lemire told ComicBook.com.

Lemire added, “Dustin is doing some of the best work of his career and I’ve really fallen in love with this world and these characters. We can’t wait to share more with readers.”

So what’s Little Monsters about?

In Little Monsters readers follow the last children on Earth…who also happen to be vampires. For longer than they can remember, these child vampires have lived a life of eternal wonder amongst the ruins of humanity. But shocking events fracture the group and set them on a path of discovery that will shatter their innocence forever.

Check out a preview of the book below which is expected to ship on March 2, 2022.
