We love a good vampire story. Particularly stories that explore the society that vampires create over the centuries for themselves. Societies that lie outside the daytime world but coexist with them in unseen or unnoticed ways. Day Men is exactly that type of story. With a touch of noir and a touch of organized crime fiction it takes a whole new perspective on vampires and how they live especially the humans they need to handle their business in the sunlight hours.
The first four issues are collected in a trade paper that is in comic shops today. Do yourself a favor and pick up this unique and enthralling book.
WHY BOOM! LOVES IT: We’re honored to publish the first ongoing comic book work from industry legend Brian Stelfreeze since 2005, and Matt Gagnon (Freelancers) and Michael Alan Nelson (Hexed, Supergirl) have created a nuanced, action-packed piece of genre fiction that is core to BOOM!’s DNA.
WHY YOU’LL LOVE IT: Any fan of smart, sexy vampire fiction will love the juxtaposition of classic crime noir elements in Day Men. The world of Day Men is utterly unique and completely engrossing.
WHAT IT’S ABOUT: For thousands of years, the world has been controlled by the “50 Families,” a secret network of vampire covens engaged in a timeless struggle for power. But when the sun rises, the vampires are forced to employ the services of a human who acts as their daytime fixer and protector. Trained for centuries to be the mortal soldiers of their vampire employers, the Day Men go forth at sunrise, alone into the world, to do the bidding of their sleeping benefactors.
