Life sucks for Dave Marshall.

The girl he's in love with doesn't know he exists, he hates his job, and ever since his boss turned him into a vampire, he can't go out in daylight without starting to charbroil.

Undead life in its uncoolest incarnation yet is on display in this cinematic, supernatural drama told with gallons of humor and hemoglobin. In striking, colorful, B-movie sty;e artwork and light-hearted, intelligent writing by Jessica Abel, Gabe Soria, and Warren Pleece, Dave Marshall's story comes alive -- in a vampiric kind of way.

A weird take on the vampire myth. A vampire makes another vampire, but instead of keeping him around as a sexy servant/ friend (a la Anne Rice), the master puts the new vampire to work for minimum wage in his convenience store. Turns out being undead means more mopping bathrooms and restocking shelves than elegant parties and wealthy homes. The art was okay, the story was uncomplicated, but a really unique twist to vampire lore.

A different twist on life as a vampire - amusingly ironic relationship between the vampire who thinks his "life" sucks and the girl who thinks it would be so cool to be a vampire.

Cliché love-story/love triangle with the addition of vampirism; the sad, quiet guy likes a cute girl but has to compete for her love against the popular guy who doesn’t truly care about her. Some witty twists on Vampire conventions though.
