NOVEMBER 21 PORTLAND, OR – ABLAZE's first title “VAMPIRE STATE BUILDING” from Walking Dead artist Charlie Adlard is the #1 bestselling title for the month of October according to Diamond’s top 100 non-premier listing! Issue #2 of VAMPIRE STATE BUILDING was also the #3 best selling non-premier book in October. 


VAMPIRE STATE BUILDING is a new horror series, drawn by The Walking Dead artist Charlie Adlard, and written by Ange and Patrick Renault. It stars Terry Fisher, a young soldier on the verge of being sent away for active military duty, who is going to meet his friends at the top of the Empire State Building for a farewell party, when suddenly a legion of vampires attacks the skyscraper and massacres its occupants. Hounded in the 102 floors that have become a deadly trap, Terry must take decisive action to save himself and his friends — and the city of New York!

It’s great to be recognized and have success outside of the material everybody knows you for,” said Charlie Adlard. “I’m honored to have been given the opportunity to work on VSB. Thank you!

VSB writers Patrick Renault and Ange: “First comic book published by ABLAZE – and they really hit it out of the ballpark! Glad it’s ours! Thank you everyone!

ABLAZE VP of Creative/Business Development Rich Young said: “We’re thrilled with the response on all levels around the launch of Vampire State Building. The support we've gotten from fans, retailers, Diamond, and the creative team has been amazing. We couldn’t be happier…but this really is just the very beginning for ABLAZE…so much more to come!” 

Copies of Issue #1 and 2 are still available (#1 order code: JUL191360, #2 order code: AUG191440)
