WonderCon 2013: GAGERMAN & WALLER’S BLOOD BROTHERS – BEST FRIENDS…FOREVER

Dark Horse has announced a new comic miniseries that I could potentially check out.  I wish I had the time to be deeper into comics than I currently am right now, but I do what I can.  With that said, this new miniseries sounds pretty intriguing.  A vampire buddy action comic, with inspiration coming from the likes of Lethal Weapon.  That sounds like the kind of fun I could get behind, were I to have the time.  Regardless, read on to learn more about Blood Brothers, a new comic miniseries that has a presence at WonderCon 2013, even though the full issues will not start hitting until this July.

Official Press Release:

MARCH 29, ANAHEIM, CA–Dark Horse Comics announces Blood Brothers, a new miniseries by writers Mike Gagerman and Andrew Waller that takes friendship to an entirely new level. The comic has already found friends at MGM, where it is also being developed as a major motion picture.

With interiors by Evan Shaner (Buddy Cops, Eerie, Green Hornet Year One) and covers by Juan Doe (Legion of Monsters, Iron Man Legacy), this vampire buddy action series is sure to be the talk of the summer at local comic shops.

“Our goal with Blood Brothers was to create a comic with the feel of a classic buddy action comedy, like Lethal Weapon or Rush Hour, but with two vampires as the heroes,” said Andrew Waller. “It’s really a story about two regular guys, who just happen to be vampires. They’ve treated the last millennium like a thousand-year bender, but now find themselves having to save humanity just to keep the party going.”

More about Blood Brothers: Nick and Tree have seen everything together. They’ve smoked opium with Genghis Khan, had orgies in Michelangelo’s studio, even fronted a death metal band in the seventies. But after a millennium of friendship, these inseparable, immortal buddies are on the verge of going their separate ways. Terrible timing, as an apocalypse-obsessed vampire villain is plotting an end to humanity, and Nick and Tree are the only ones standing in his way. Can they put their baggage aside long enough to save the world?

Mike Gagerman and Andrew Waller are writers who have been friends for twenty-five years. Their Black List screenplay Search Party, about two best friends who set off on a road trip to save their roommate, who is lost and naked on a road in Mexico, is shooting this summer for Universal.

Blood Brothers #1 is on sale July 17, 2013.
