Stoker Award-winning writer Jonathan Maberry has landed a deal with Dark Horse Comics for five-issue mini-series, Bad Blood.

Bad Blood tells the story of Trick, a teenage slacker on the losing side of a fight with cancer. When he’s attacked by a vampire, he figures it’s game over. Except that the chemo drugs in Trick’s blood poison the vampire. As punishment, the vampires begin slaughtering everyone Trick loves. So he goes hunting for the vamps to try to destroy them.
