Here we are in the middle of the Summer, the days are too hot and the only time we can really enjoy being outside is at night, well now we have something in common with our Pick of the Month for July, Vinnie the Vampire. Vinnie and his family go through the same life problems we do, with the exception of their worries about that summer sunburn are a bit more life threatening than ours.
Vinnie is your normal every day vampire teenager, working hard to establish his place as the older sibling to one very pernicious sister, Sunny. If Vinnie’s life didn’t already have enough bumps in the road, in moves Vampa, the family patriarch, and boy oh boy can he be one crotchety old geezer. Vampa seems to have it out for Vinnie, their generation gap has them going back and forth so much one day I won’t be surprised to see one of them wake up to a stake in the heart.
Vinnie the Vampire is rounded out with other cast and characters, such as Belfry the pet bat that Vinnie rescues, and their canine guardian, the ever ferocious and very insightful Bob. We get to experience the life of a Vampire in a very fun and witty way, as we watch Vinnie weave his ways through the perils of girls, work, and just surviving his family long enough to one day hopefully have a normal life.
Tim Green takes a very fun and energetic approach to the Vampire Story, taking us into a family of Vampires, and introducing us to a Vampire Subculture just like yours and mine, with the only exception of them working the late night shift. Tim creates a family dynamic and shares it with us through the life of the title mentioned Vinnie the Vampire as he runs the obstacle course of the Teenage Years. Vinnie updates on a Monday, Wednesday, Friday schedule, so fresh content is always waiting for readers. Not only is Tim a great artist and story teller he’s a wonderful advocate of Webcomics always promoting other artists and their works. I’ve found so many cool new webcomics through Tim’s Re-Tweets alone.
So for a family friendly new approach on the Vampire story, go check out Vinnie the Vampire. Also come back on July 15th and get to know Tim a bit more as he takes on our “10 Questions for the Pick of the Month“.
