William Harms talks IMPALER on MySpace Comic Books

EXCLUSIVE: Writer WILLIAM HARMS discusses the shadowy world of vampires in IMPALER!

The first six-issue volume of IMPALER was collected into a trade paperback and is available now, #1 of the new series just came out, and #2 is coming out at the end of this month.
But for people who have yet to read it, what’s IMPALER about?

WILLIAM HARMS: The short answer is that it's about vampires destroying the world.

The long answer is that it's about grief, loss and ultimately, hope. The main character is a man named Victor Dailey, and prior to the vampires arriving, his life was falling apart. His wife died from breast cancer, his boss hated him and he was going to take early retirement and get the hell out of dodge.

And so this man who really just wants to crawl away and die is now tasked with being an integral part of saving the human race. Complicating matters is that Victor's "partner" in all of this is Vlad III, the "historical" Dracula. And Vlad has his own ideas on how Victor should respond to what is happening.

The vampires in your book are different than previous depictions of vampires. They even look different and can’t be killed in the usual ways.
Can you describe how the vampires in IMPALER are different and why you decided to make them that way? READ MORE.
