There's going to be some spoilers here so for those who haven't read the first volume of IMPALER then you are S.O.L. in SO many different ways. IMPALER is perhaps the best vampire comic ever to hit comics and Volume 1 saw the streets of New York invaded by vampires during a horrible blizzard. Series hero Vlad Tepes, the man known for starting the vampire legend, had teamed up with the local cops to subdue the menace. Then the military freaked out and decided it was best just to nuke New York City.
