"The Fang," is Pulpy Goodness
Written and illustrated by Marc Palm, "The Fang," is focused on its titular character, a vampire who also is an assasin-for-hire who kills other monsters in exchange for a big payday. The book follows her as she almost kills a werwolf, but hesitates because they have some romantic chemistry and agree to meet-up again later. Then we witness her burn-up a slime monster, get high with her friend the Hash Hag, and later hook-up with the werewolf via some saucy, "Mouth-stuff," as folk call it these days...before shooting him with some silver bullets because she may have thought he was cute, but she's still a professional! Also, there is an extra chapter about her fighting a Dr. Jekyll-type person that turns from a man into a huge monster baby. It is all good fun and boosted by Palm's stellar artwork.
Marc Palm can be found at his Tumblr and also maintains a Patreon for those interested in following his work. If you want to purchase a copy of, "The Fang," he actually sells it in his own Etsy store, and it was recently picked-up for wider distribution via Fantagraphics, which is how I imagine it ended-up in the comic-shop where it caught my eye. I am so happy to have stumbled upon this book and eagerly give it 5 out of 5 stars.
