Jeff Lemire And Dustin Nguyen Announce New Vampire Series ‘Little Monsters’ From Image Comics

by Olly MacNamee

Jeff Lemire and Dustin Nguyen, co-creators of Descender and Ascender are re-teaming for an all-new series, Little Monsters. Coming this Spring from Image Comics.

Lemire broke the news exclusively with

“After finishing fifty issues of Descender and Ascender, Dustin and I knew we wanted to keep our collaborations going but also knew we needed to change direction and try something totally different from that sweeping space epic.”

“This story may be about vampires but it is not a horror book. It is a book very much grounded in the lives of these children who have, in a way, been trapped in amber. They live an endless life of innocence and games and childhood. It’s a character study of what it would mean to be truly young forever and the things that growing up costs us all. Dustin is doing some of the best work of his career and I’ve really fallen in love with this world and these characters. We can’t wait to share more with readers.”

As for the series’ official synopsis…

“In Little Monsters readers follow the last children on Earth…who also happen to be vampires. For longer than they can remember, these child vampires have lived a life of eternal wonder amongst the ruins of humanity. But shocking events fracture the group and set them on a path of discovery that will shatter their innocence forever.”

Well, all that’s left to add is a first look at this creepy comic ahead of its debut in Wednesday, March 2nd, 2022:
