Vampire superheroes aren’t anything new or original at this point. But writer Mark Millar is hoping to put a new twist on it with his upcoming Night Club comic series. Launching this December from Image Comics, Millar is joined by artist artist Juanan Ramírez for this latest series that will join Millar’s growing line of popular comics owned by Netflix.
In Night Club, a group of unsuspecting 17-year-olds is bitten by a vampire and suddenly imbued with superheroic powers. The story unfolds as it asks: Now what? Do you live in the shadows and drink human blood? Or do you use your newfound abilities to become the costumed vigilante you’ve always dreamed of instead? You’re bulletproof, you can crawl up walls, and you can turn to mist, bats, or even a wolf. Why not have a little fun?
As an added incentive, each issue of the series will boast an incredibly low price point of only $1.99.
In the official press release Millar teased what to expect:
“It’s funny. I haven’t launched a new superhero comic out there in about ten years, despite superhero comics being what I’m best known for with things like Civil War, Red Son, Old Man Logan, etc.. But I wanted to wait until I had a genuinely fresh take because I love these things and it had to be something really different and I wanted an artist who’s work just jumped off the page. We’re also trying an experiment to see if a full size 24 page comic-book can work at $1.99 every month. We think readers are going to LOVE this package.”
In addition to the main cover by Ramírez as well as a Black & White variant, a cover drawn by Greg Capullo will also be available.
Night Club #1 will be available at comic book shops and digital platforms on Wednesday, October 14, 2022.
