Sex, blood and rock ‘n’ roll — that’s what England was all about in Night Trippers’ swingin’ 60s.
The vampire set secretly rule the cities, not so much in that ancient cult of evil kind of way, more in a corporate sense.
Darien Pendragon, a very old bloodsucker indeed, controls the way people look, the way they dress and even the music they listen to — and he thinks he may have just found the next big thing.
Enter Dorothy “Dot” Pryce, a full-time nurse who gets caught in the wrong place at the wrong time, but rather than ending up as a snack, becomes England’s new “It” girl.
Meanwhile, a rock lyric-quoting vampire slayer, dubbed the Chelsea Killer, is slashing his way towards a showdown with Pendragon.
So whose side will the seemingly innocent Dot be on when the final conflict comes?
Writer Mark Ricketts and artist Micah Farritor have a smashing time mixing laughs and gore in this inventive new book.
