Continuing with the current trend of “everything vampires,” is DC comics’ Dead Romeo #1, which is out tomorrow. The story follows the lead singer of the 80’s band, the Dead Romeos, who through circumstances got turned into a vampire and sent straight to hell. Now he’s back on earth and trying to even the score and save his soul. I must say that this story reminds me a lot of spawn but with guitars, long hair, and fangs. More info after the jump…
Jonathan Romero, aka ‘Dead Romeo,’ was the lead singer of the ’80s rock band ‘The Dead Romeos.’ But that was before a mysterious set of circumstances turned him into a vampire and sent him straight to Hell.
Now he’s back on Earth and he has a difficult choice to make: Kill his true love and earn his permanent release from eternal damnation – or protect her and burn for eternity. Either way, someone is going to die!
It’s vampires, romance, rock and dismemberment like you’ve never seen before! New writer Jesse Blaze Snider joins artist Ryan Benjamin for a bloodsucking good time in this all-new 6-issue miniseries.
