New ongoing series ‘Blood-Stained Teeth’ explores secret billionaire vampires

‘Blood-Stained Teeth’ follows Atticus Sloane—misanthrope, criminal, and vampire—who lives in a world where blood isn’t the only thing vamps crave.

Image Comics has announced a new series from Christian Ward and Patric Reynolds called Blood-Stained Teeth. The fast-paced ongoing series launches on April 27th in comic book shops.

“I’ve been thinking about making this comic for years and it struck me, that in a time where we have billionaires racing to explore space rather than pay taxes there’s never been a more apt time to tell a story about a secret society of Vampires who are feeding not just on our blood but also on our money,” said Ward.

Listen to the latest episode of our weekly comics podcast!

“Bringing this book to life with my fantastic co-creator Patric (and our amazing colour artist Heather Moore) has been the very opposite of soul sucking and I’m so excited for people to discover the world of Blood-Stained Teeth and their new favourite bastard Atticus Sloane.”

What’s Blood-Stained Teeth about?

Blood-Stained Teeth follows Atticus Sloane—misanthrope, criminal, asshole, and vampire—who lives in a world where blood isn’t the only thing vamps crave. And for the right price, he’ll make you a vampire too. After all, immortality isn’t cheap.

Reynolds added: “Imagine how excited I was when Christian Ward asked me to make a horror comic with him. His interstellar sensibilities and my street-level grittiness my seem like light years apart, but when combined in Blood Stained Teeth they tell a unique Vampire story that is as lysergic as a downtown neon jungle at night (as colorist Heather Moore so strikingly renders), but haunted by characters that are still deeply human. Drawing blood can satisfy the darkest and greediest of impulses, but it also can free those from pain and guilt. It’s this conflict that I think makes this story unique and soulful, and I can’t wait for the reader to experience it.”
