Before Dracula, before Nosferatu, there was...CARMILLA. In the second volume of this feminist tale of murder, monsters, and mystery layered with dark Chinese folklore, social worker turned vampire hunter Athena Lo has just lost everyone she loves and it's all her fault.Hoping to put her life back together, Athena travels to San Francisco's Chinatown on a quest to uncover the secrets of her mysterious family history. But her journey escalates into a nightmare when she's violently introduced to a new, ruthless gang of Asian American vampires and its unlikely leader, who hold shocking truths. As she navigates this dangerous territory, Athena can't escape the ghost of Carmilla...and neither can the vampires. Athena must decide whose side is she on? Inspired by the gothic novel that started the vampire genre, this queer, feminist murder mystery graphic novel is a tale of identity, obsession and fateful family secrets Praise for Carmilla: The First Vampire: Part of the challenge when writing about the Asian-American experience is attempting to define something that feels so amorphous. Chu and Lee ingeniously meld one of Western horror's oldest icons with the touchstones of the East. Pornsak Pichetshote (The Good Asian, Infidel) A sophisticated and modern reimagination of one of the great classics of the horror genre, Chu and Lee have crafted a Vampire story you do not want to miss. James Tynion IV (Something Is Killing The Children, The Department of Truth) Carmilla is an itch in the back of your head, the horror of knowing something's right behind you, whether it be a creature, a nightmare, or a terrible love. Amy Chu and Soo Lee weave a beautiful tale full of mystery in an unsettling New York. I highly recommend it. Chip Zdarsky (Batman, Sex Criminals)
