Clan of the Vein: The Next Action Horror Classic? Graphic Novel?

Wanted to give the DOCTERROR readers a heads up that we're going to be doing a review for a new comic called Clan of the Vein. I'm excited about this puppy for a couple reasons. For one I'm looking to get into reviewing more horror comics. I have enough time to enjoy them and love the throwback imagery I've been seeing as of late. Two sexy vamps and werewolves (Howling-esque werewolves no less)? You have my attention. This will start off as a graphic novel and has been green lit for film production. The marketing is clearly aimed toward the Underworld crowd, but given my happiness with that series thus far... keep 'em coming!

Here's the synopsis:

The world has been rid of all vampires by a mysterious assassin named Ian 

MacBane. Or has it? MacBane, a vampire himself, has been living in isolation feeding his 

existence with a serum to avoid drinking the blood of the mortals he sought to protect. 

Earning his vast wealth by sales of his famed artwork, MacBane receives an invitation to 

an event showcasing his paintings. Spurred by the musical guest appearance of a mystery 

lady who has literally haunted his dreams, and his beautiful paintings, MacBane heads to 

an isolated resort made entirely of glass. When he finally meets his beautiful ghost of a 

woman, Lorro, the resort is invaded by a cult of the last remaining vampires known as 

The Children of Judas. Now MacBane must protect his fair lady love from the vampire 

savages who are searching for the last remaining blood of their vampire queen in a bid to 

repopulate their vampire species once again. MacBane has 14 hours until the light of 

dawn breaks through to save the woman of his dreams and stop a vampiric outbreak. 

Only 14 hours left until the Eve of White Nights… 3 weeks of bright light, 24 hours a 

day… Only 14 hours left for good to prevail.

Wanna follow the action as it happens? You'll have to wait for June to pick up the graphic novel and the film project should flow from there. Here are your significant addresses:


Best wishes to Neo Edmund and Neil D'Amonte, the writer and artist respectively. We'll be reviewing this when it's released.
