VAMPIRES FIGHT CLIMATE CHANGE IN DARK FANG
Climate Change is affecting more than just extreme weather and the ozone layer. It's also affecting vampires. Dark Fang from writer Miles Gunter and artist Kelsey Shannon portrays a different kind of environmentalist.
Debuting in November from Image Comics, the comic follows Valla, a former fisherwoman / current vampire who peacefully lives at the bottom of the ocean, presumably near Spongebob Squarepants. When a strange dark plague descends upon her aquatic paradise, she heads to the surface to look for answers only to find the world on the brink of environmental collapse which will ultimately wipe out her food supply. Now, in order to stay fed, she has to take on the global fossil fuel industry.
“Dark Fang was largely born out of the anger and frustration I feel towards people either denying or having an apathetic attitude towards climate change,” said Gunter. “Working on this book has been a fun catharsis for all my frustration about the issue, and I hope it will be a catharsis for others who feel the same way.”
“I've worked on many books that are devoid of any meaning beyond its own self-contained universe,” said Shannon. “But this is the first time I've had the opportunity to invest myself in something that is not only fun and sexy, but also has meaning beyond itself and our art form. It actually has something important to say and I find that tremendously exciting!”
Dark Fang #1 is set for release on Wednesday, November 15th, 2017.
