Vampires are real. Angel lost her two best friends to them on live TV, now she's after the one who started it all. She is... Stake.
Three years ago, Vampires announced their presence to the world in grand fashion; in one instant, Angel lost her two best friends and her life changed forever. Now, as a member of the Vampire Bounty Hunter Union and with the help of her ancient vampire mentor, Jessamy, she’s out to track down the vampire who destroyed her life.

The Story

Stake is a vampire story for people who are sick of the same old same old vampire tropes.

They’re not supernatural, they’re not evil or demonic. They are biological organisms, an evolutionary sidestep from humanity. In the world of Stake, they simply are.

Admit it, we all knew vampires were real. Three years ago, ancient vampire Ashwyn confirmed just that when he ripped Brock Wilson’s heart out live on every media outlet on the planet.

On that fateful day, Angel Beltran Stinson was a normal teenage girl - more concerned with where she was going to spend her college years than worrying about being abducted with her two best friends by the mother of all vampire baddies.

All it took was one instant to change her life forever.

Tensions run high in a world torn by Ashwyn’s actions. In response, the world’s governments and the International Vampire Senate established the Vampire Bounty Hunter Union to keep order between humans and vampires.

With the help of her ageless vampire warrior partner, Jessamy, Angel sets out to track down the vampire who destroyed her life – and she’s sharing it all on social media.

Stake will be an ongoing series published by Scout Comics later this year or early 2021. Beyond the main storyline, there’s a rich world to be explored and a near infinite history of stories throughout the centuries.
