In Madeline McGrane’s Vampire Horse comics, readers are introduced to a character who has all the powers of both a horse and a vampire.

In the first story, Vampire Horse, the eponymous horse is enjoying a life of sucking the blood of cattle and lonesome plain wandering when a chance encounter with a Vampire Cowboy creates a new path to follow, as the pair join together and become Vampire Ranchers.

Each one of the comics tells a satisfying story of spooky adventures in the Old West. The black and white artwork is crisp and clear, the characters are adorable, and the comedic timing and dialogue will have you laughing so hard you might fall off your horse.

Probably tasty enough, if you’re in the mood.

Finished all three comics and still get enough of Madeline’s work? Her website also has several comics about the Vampire Children, a trio of diminutive unholy creatures of the night. These spooky friends will be starring in an upcoming pair of middle-grade graphic novels, the first of which, The Accursed Vampire, is slated for release from HarperCollins in 2021.
