I’ve been wanting to check out Day Men, it looks so damn good. It seems that issue #5 will be a good place to start. Of course you can also buy trade paper coming out in October, collecting issues #1-4.
From the press release:
‘DAY MEN’ #5
The first Day Men trade paperback, collecting issues #1-4 at the introductory price of $9.99, is set to debut on October 8th, and it will be followed by the release of issue #5 in November.
Day Men is our popular vampire noir series by writers Michael Alan Nelson and Matt Gagnon, gorgeously illustrated by the legendary Brian Stelfreeze. “Day Men” are specially trained non-vampires who serve and protect their masters while they sleep during the day.
Issue #5 is the start of a new story arc (so it’s a great jumping-on point!), and in it, our hero, David, a Day Man for one of the biggest vampire families, must participate in the “Dog Fight,” a one-on-one battle against other Day Men, while trying to find out who is behind the trafficking of harvested vampire fangs. Here’s the cover image to issue #5:
