Media Release — On the heels of its first smash hit, SKYWARD, comic book publisher Action Lab Entertainment took another step forward by getting its next big release, the kid-friendly VAMPLETS, covered in the August 19 issue of USA Today.
Scheduled for an early October release, VAMPLETS is a 48-page oversized hardcover edition based on the plushy toy line developed by creator Gayle Middleton (who played a large role in the redesign of My Little Pony and The Littlest Pet Shop), co-written by David Dwonch, with art by Amanda Coronado and Bill Blankenship.
VAMPLETS tells the story of Destiny Harper, a teenager who gets pressed into service babysitting a collection of loveable monster babies. USA Today calls the title “great” and “charming”, and notes that the book will help fans of all ages get their vampire “fix.”
“This is another feather in the cap for our company,” notes Action Lab President Kevin Freeman. “The fact that our books are now getting mainstream coverage says a lot about how far Action Lab has come in recent months. VAMPLETS tells an amazing story, and we’re thrilled that people are taking notice. ” Freeman also added that he hopes the worldwide coverage of VAMPLETS will result in everyone, not just comic book fans, giving it a shot and seeing what all the hoopla is about.
VAMPLETS will be available in comic book and book stores everywhere on October 8, and has a cover price of $15.99. A free preview of the book is available on comixology.com as well.
