Issue 14 “Bad Blood”
|Book||Counselors of the Macabre: Case Files, Vol. 4|
Attorneys Alanna Wolff and Jeff Byrd acquired the one and only Count Dracula as a client back in issue #6 of Wolff & Byrd, Counselors of the Macabre. Now the ancient vampire once again has need of their services — it seems some young upstart vampires in New Orleans are raising his blood pressure.
In issue #14 of Wolff & Byrd, Alanna and Jeff accompany the Count to the Crescent City, a place that abounds with monsters, witches, and spirits — and not just during Mardi Gras!
The new generation of vampires are headquartered in an eerie old mansion, once a gothic church, that is owned by a mysterious woman, Ayn Wryce. These young creatures of the night are more than just roommates — they’re “Fiends.”
Readers will find this a comic they can really sink their teeth into. During the course of the issue, gris gris is performed, gumbo is consumed, secrets are revealed, and writs are filed.
Says Batton Lash, writer/artist of Wolff & Byrd, “Setting the story in New Orleans provides some visual treats, and the undead are always good for a few laughs. I get in my digs at goths, annoying sitcoms, old world thinking, popular novelists, relationships, and, of course, our favorite bloodsuckers: vampires and lawyers.”
