“Vampirism can be a bally intolerable nuisance to one’s social life – ask Devlin Waugh. Having been transformed into a blood-sucking fiend when on a mission for the Vatican, the one-time Corinthian is now a shadow of his old, jovial self. But now a terrifying evil from Devlin’s past has returned with an unquenchable thirst for mayhem. Will the former connoisseur of au courant be equipped to defeat this menace? Or is the world destined to suffer in the putrescent grip of this supernatural, degenerate force? This transcendent tome is brought to you by the considerable talents of John Smith (Indigo Prime) Colin McNeil (Judge Dredd) John Burns (Nikolai Dante), Sean Phillips (Criminal) and Peter Doherty (Shaolin Cowboy).”

And so, humanity was forced to battle once more, this time among the stars, in space patrol ships crewed by the V.C.s (aka Vacuum Cleaners).
