On the streets of New Orleans, there are those who do not think twice about killing.  There are those who do not think twice about hunting those that would prey on others. But, how do you kill someone that cannot die?  These acts of murder are brutal and bloody, remorseless and vengeful.  We cannot help ourselves but to look, and to question ourselves.

Dead Souls, a three-part comic book series by Kurt Amacker and drawn by Louis Manna, follows two of history's most notorious killers, alive and unstoppable on the streets of modern day New Orleans.

In their own time when Prince Vlad Dracula and Countess Erzsebet Bathory took the lives of others, they did so remorselessly and for their own reasons some for war and others for pleasure. The world has never seen inside the mind of those out of time out of a time when life held little value for those that would take it at will.  Until now.  But, can a creature born into violence change with the tides of history?


"Even with Eastern European

heavy-hitters Vlad Tepes, and

Erzsebet Bathory as the

deathless vigilantes of the title,

the main character that emerges

through this narrative is that of

New Orleans herself - a Gothic

beauty who moves to the rhythms

of trad jazz, wearing her bruises

and bereavements, her steamy

history, and her wild voodoo

nights with pride, with passion.

A fascinating debut that delivers

much and promises a great deal
