Overview

A New York Times bestselling love story between a vampire and a werewolf by the creator of the enormously popular Sarah's Scribbles comics.

Elsie the vampire is three hundred years old, but in all that time, she has never met her match. This all changes one night in a bar when she meets Jimmy, a charming werewolf with a wry sense of humor and a fondness for running wild during the full moon. Together they enjoy horror films and scary novels, shady strolls, fine dining (though never with garlic), and a genuine fondness for each other’s unusual habits, macabre lifestyles, and monstrous appetites. 

First featured as a webcomic series on Tapas, Fangs chronicles the humor, sweetness, and awkwardness of meeting someone perfectly suited to you but also vastly different. This deluxe hardcover edition of Fangs features an “engraved” red cloth cover, dyed black page trim, and 25 exclusive comics not previously seen online. Filled with Sarah Andersen’s beautiful gothic illustrations and relatable relationship humor, Fangs has all the makings of a cult classic.

Upon meeting in a bar one night, Elsie and Jimmy are immediately attracted to each other, but there's a hitch—she's a vampire and he's a werewolf. After listing the pros and cons of either sucking his blood or dating him, Elsie follows her heart and the two become involved. Cartoonist Andersen (Cheshire Crossing) presents the ensuing romance in a series of charming and—despite the supernatural context—relatable vignettes. The two share memories of past lovers (after Jimmy inquires what she did after being cheated on by a former lover, Elise asks, "With his body?") and swap gruesome tales of past exploits. Their romance isn't without minor annoyances and missteps, as when Jimmy nearly kills Elsie by throwing open a curtain to let the sunshine in or Elsie's occasionally overwhelming bloodlust, but before long the pair declare undying love for each other…literally, in Elsie's case. VERDICT Andersen's knack for macabre banter and focus on how intimacy is established through an aggregate of grandly romantic moments and relatively mundane exchanges result in a funny, sweet volume about two uncommonly endearing supernatural predators.
