Even with Eastern European heavy-hitters Vlad Tepes, and Erzsebet Bathory as the deathless vigilantes of the title, the main character that emerges through this narrative is that of New Orleans herself a Gothic beauty who moves to the rhythms of trad jazz, wearing her bruises and bereavements, her steamy history, and her wild voodoo nights with pride, with passion.  A fascinating debut that delivers much and promises a great deal more. -- Alan Moore, writer of Watchmen

Book 1 of 3.

Book 1 contains an exclusive interview with Dani Filth, singer of Cradle of Filth.

From writer Kurt Amacker and artist Louis Manna comes a dark tale of immortal vengeance.

On the darkest streets of New Orleans, forces from the past have crossed into our world. In their own time, when Prince Vlad Dracula and Countess Erzsebet Bathory took the lives of others, they did so remorselessly and for their own reasons some for war and others for pleasure. The world has never seen inside the mind of those out of time out of a time when life held little value for those that would take it at will until now.

Born again with no understanding as to why, nothing will stop the two immortals from extracting their vengeance on a world with few answers.

But, the two sides of a conflict spanning history have found them. And, two New Orleans Police detectives will glimpse a world filled with darker things than are dreamt of in their philosophy.

The dead live again. The conspiracy unfolds. And, New Orleans may just be caught in the middle. Dead Souls raises many questions, but there are only the beginnings of answers.

Two of the most infamous and bloody characters from the Middle Ages are given fresh new Satanic life in this illustrated modern gothic horror story. One of the best and profoundly imaginative comics I've read for centuries... --Dani Filth (Singer of Cradle of Filth)
