"Before Dracula, before Nosferatu, there was Carmilla!" Following their widely praised reimagining of Le Fanu’s gothic novella, writer Amy Chu and artist Soo Lee return to their "tale of obsession, vampires and Chinese folklore" in Carmilla: The Last Vampire Hunter. The new graphic novel, with lettering by Sal Cipriano, will be released in July 2024 and we have all the details, along with an exclusive preview!

“Amy and Soo deliver a fascinating story about the unyielding supernatural sway of the enigmatic vampire Carmilla, while exploring family heritage, cultural identity and historic and present-day anti-Asian racism,” said editor, Karen Berger. “It’s a thrill to be working with them again on this haunting and captivating sequel!”

“Excited to continue the story of Athena and Carmilla, this time on the West Coast, and to introduce a whole new world of pan-Asian supernatural characters to the readers,” said Chu. “I hope with the Last Vampire, Soo Lee and I help define Asian American horror as a genre.”

“I’ve fallen in love with these characters as I bring them to life on paper, and Athena has a very special place in my heart,” said Lee.Introducing a new cast of Asian Vampires creates a twist to the genre that I hope will become a new trend for many years to come. This story has become a part of me and this sequel is one I hope resonates with many people, especially if family is an important part of you."
