Let’s face it, fiends. The Nazis are the quintessential bad guys and within the genre, prove to be the go-to villain of choice. The undead nazi seems to be the evildoer du jour within the horror genre with expected releases of Outpost: Black Sun, Frankenstein’s Army, The 4th Reich, Nazis at the Center of the Earth, Fangs of War to name but a few.
Prolific genre artist Alex Ronald looks set to continue this tradition with his comic creation, Vampire Vixens of the Wehrmacht!
With a picture like that, I don’t really think you need a synopsis but all the same, here you are!
“Vampire Vixens of the Wermacht is a tongue in cheek, action/horror comic strip set during WW2.
The key players in the strip are a sexy Nazi Vampire defector and her chaperone, the uptight, bible bashing man of God, army chaplain, William Morris.
By way of a directive from Churchill himself, they form the core of the ‘Special Occult Executive’ a secret wing of MI5 charged with tackling the Nazi’s supernatural ambitions. Although enemies in more ways than one, the Chaplain and the Vamp must work together as the forces of evil threaten to consume the world.”
Vampire Vixens of the Wehrmacht started life as a 4 page colour strip within the UK distributed magazine Wasted, making its debut appearance in issue 7 along with a Vixens themed cover to promote the strip. Issue 7 sold out in record time.
After only two short appearances in Wasted, the strip went on to win best art at the Scottish Independent Comic Awards in June 2011.
For the last ten years, Alex Ronald has been employed in the CG industry as both an Illustrator and modeller. Projects have included design and paintings for Black Camel Pictures on horror movie Outpost 2 and 3. During the 90′s he was an art droid at the British comic 2000AD, illustrating Judge Dredd.
Now that Ronald’s commitments to the Outpost projects are complete, he is aiming to unleash the Vixens on the world in their own comic in 2013, aiming for a print to be in place for Kapow 2013, the major UK comic convention in London.
With artwork by Ronald himself, lettering by Jim Campbell, co-written by Ronald and a prolific small press writer known only as the ‘Emperor’, Vixens has been described as “Carry on Screaming meets Where Eagles Dare in comic form” and delightfully un-PC, what’s not to love about this project?!
