The Children's Vampire Hunting Brigade is a coming-of-age Gothic adventure comic inspired by the real-life Gorbals vampire incident, where hundreds of school children descended upon a Scottish cemetery looking for a vampire. Dubbed by comic book reviewers as “Buffy the Vampire Slayer meets S.E. Hinton’s The Outsiders,” Volume 2 (Age of the Wicked) finds the Scottish juvenile delinquents Doug and Gavin - who fell into becoming the newest members of the Brigade in the first graphic novel - diving in full force to join the fight. As the vampire threat escalates, the Brigade goes to America to seek out a new recruit with a mysterious past, unaware that they are being manipulated by the vampires themselves.
Writer Lucarelli stresses that new readers to the series will easily be able to jump into the series with Volume 2, as he states, “The book is self-contained. It starts with a summary of all you need to know about what’s come before. You can also read the first 39 pages of the first graphic novel online for free at cvhb.net and then add on Volume 1 to the Kickstarter for the Brigade’s complete adventures.”
