This brilliant reimagining of the vampire myth is collected for the first time and includes the final three parts of the initial storyline not available anywhere else.

Impaler has received accolades from countless sources, including Rue Morgue magazine, Aint it Cool News, Cinescape, IGN Comics, and others. Impaler was also a finalist for the prestigious International Horror Guild Award. A new, ongoing series will debut in December!
