The opening scene of this new comic is set on St Kilda at the time of the 1930 evacuation where it is linked to a vampire infestation. The story continues into the Second World War in Europe and incorporates iconic figures from the horror film canon.  We will hear about why St. Kilda was chosen, about the continued interest in the horror community with island life, and about plans to develop the characters in connection to St. Kilda and a new project centred on the Island of Mingulay slated for 2013.  So, vampires, Nazis, a remote, evocative Scottish island with a real history and an assortment of movie monsters…  What’s not to like?

Through the publicity generated from the BBC Highlands and Islands website, The Sun and The Daily Mirror, the story has been optioned to be made into a full length feature film by the Scottish film company Invictus. The comic has been extremely well received by fans and critics alike and continues to grow in popularity.
