Best of Evil Inc — Vampires

I love vampires. Always have; always will. So it’s no surprise that the bloodsuckers have turned up more-than-occasionally in the halls of Evil Inc. Here are a few of my favorites.

The very first week of Evil Inc

2005-06-09-Thursday1In a storyline that started alllll the way back in May of 2005, Lightning Lady, former Greystone Inn secretary, goes to Evil Inc to get a job. During the interview, she discovers (above) that the company’s Marketing Department is largely staffed by vampires.

Blood drives and other parties

Since then, the fangs have been bared at Evil Inc fairly often. 2011-03-08-Blood-drive-vampiresFor example, there was a blood drive at the office. You can probably guess who that attracted… 2010-10-18-VLADAnd, of course, there was the meeting of V.L.A.D. — the Vampire League for Anti-Defamation. 2009-07-10-breakroomAnd this standalone — one of my favorites for its subtle darkness. Comics-adAll week I will be highlighting Halloween comics from years past.
