Dark Horse Comics has released an Ex Sanguine teaser. Tim Seeley and Josh Emmons’s new title was teased under the strapline: “Dark Horse horror gets under your skin.” The series was first unveiled at Chicago’s C2E2 convention in April.
“It started off as our take on the vampire romance genre, which obviously is very popular, very prevalent,” Seeley said of the projects origins. “We were talking about the kind of people these stories, it’s usually the mopey sad girl finding eternal love with the supportive immortal guy. We thought that relationship would go very differently. If you were someone who spent his entire long existence killing people, you would 1.) get bored, and 2.) you’d be looking for someone to make it exciting and you wouldn’t be able to relate to normal people. The longer we talked about it, we realized the perfect romance would be between a vampire and a serial killer.
“That’s the high concept: it’s a romance between a vampire and a serial killer. But it’s lots of other things,” Seeley continued. “It’s kind of a detective story. And the vampire and the serial killer kind of try to set each other up for a series of murders. But in the meantime, they’re having this twisted romance. Kind of ‘Dexter’ meets ‘True Blood,’ that’s the Hollywood pitch.”
The writer is best known as the creator of Hack/Slash. He is currently working on Witchblade and Revival.
A Hack/Slash movie adaptation is currently in development.
Ex Sanguine will debut in Autumn 2012.
