Zanadu is proud to announce another great addition to our ever growing local and indy section-- Creator's Edge Press! In their own words, "Creator’s Edge Press is a small company focused on helping independent creators print and distribute their comics and graphic novels. We strive to be a stepping stone for the early career creator that can not garner the attention of the larger publishers. We believe in helping creators to bring their work to the fore front of the public mindset and letting them expand into the greatness we know they have."
This statement stands right in line with our own mission to give local and independent creators a stage with which to showcase their work that will hopefully be but a stepping stone in a long comic book career.
Support local art and make sure you check these books out when you stop in on Wednesday! They will be on the rack with our regular shipment.

Delaware City was a peaceful little port town until its citizens started getting slaughtered! At the scene of each crime, all that is left is a small pile of ash and one creepy little mushroom.

THE CHILDREN'S VAMPIRE HUNTING BRIGADE TP
(W) David Lucarelli (A) Henry Ponciano
In 1954 hundreds of school children descended upon a Scottish cemetery armed with steak knives and torches looking for a vampire with iron teeth they believe had killed a couple of local boys. Today it is looked upon as an incident of mass hysteria. But what if some of them found what they were looking for?
Flash forward fifty odd years: Gavin and Doug are two juvenile delinquents drinking in that same graveyard the night the vampires come back. Sometimes the good guys are a couple of bad boys.
The Children’s Vampire Hunting Brigade is a four issue mini-series. A coming of age Gothic adventure described by film director Joe Doughrity as “Buffy meets S.E. Hinton’s The Outsiders.”
