DARK RED Tells the Story of a Vampire in Rural America in March

From creators Tim Seeley and Corin Howell, via AfterShock Comics, comes a story that focuses on the life of a vampire on the other side of the fence, in a brand new series titled, Dark Red.

The story is centered on Charles ‘Chip’ Ipswich, a vampire, who is one of the ‘forgotten men’ in the United States. He has a dead end job, with no prospects, in the middle of the country, until a mysterious and special woman comes to town.

Seeley uses his main character for the series as a metaphor, having grown up in a rural town, himself. Knowing that vampires have been portrayed as glamorous phenomenons, he wanted to give readers a new take on the genre.

“He has to make sure his shift is over before the sun comes up,” Seeley told The Hollywood Reporter. “It’s a pretty miserable existence, because he doesn’t have access to any of the flourishes and community urban vampires do. It’s a story influenced by current events, but told with a down-on-his-luck vampire and a cast of some of the best characters I’ve ever managed to make up.”

Dark Red #1 hits shelves on March 20, 2019, both in comic shops and on digital.
