The bloody showdown between The Vamps Gang and the Wolves is far from over! The Vamps await the arrival of the leader of the pack, a Legendary Hero of the Great Werewolf War! This issue offers more lore and backgrounds of these characters, with a flashback to the 1940's. New characters are introduced to the story, including the first appearance of Catahoula. ALSO this issue contains a small preview and introduction of my newest project idea, as teased in issue #3. I wrote, penciled, digitally colored, and lettered this entire issue over a four month span. Check out the amazing variant cover by Japanese illustrator PeachMomoko featuring the entire Vamps Gang, limited to only 100 copies!

Risks and challenges
I'm excited to present this issue, which took longer to finish than the previous issues. While the previous three issues primarily focused on the Vamps Gang kicking butt in a Florida setting, for this issue I spent more time on fleshing out the characters a bit more and expanding the lore of the Vamps vs Wolves world. Getting to do the war flashback sequence was a lot of fun, as well as designing vintage looks for the characters. This issue is 99% finished and I'll place the print order as soon as we are funded.
Creating these comics is a dream come true, but to be honest, it has been like working a second job. Going into the fourth year now, it feels like I've been working nonstop. There have been many, fourteen hour workdays and seven day work weeks in order to get these accomplished. As much as I would love to have the job of just creating Vamps vs Wolves content, I still rely on commissions and freelance jobs for my main income. Creating these comics books is still a gamble, but I'm glad each risk has paid off so far.
The positive feedback I have gotten so far, the increased success of the Kickstarter campaigns, and the support and inspiration from my models and muses all keep me going. Seeing cosplays of the Vamps Gang characters at conventions make me so happy and humbled that people out there are enjoying these comic books.
