You need a little "fang service" in your life! Welcome to VampireCheerleaders.net, Zoom Comics' home for Vampire Cheerleaders and Paranormal Mystery Squad--two wacky horror comedies that form an exciting shared universe and supernatural narrative. Each webcomic update is presented in full page, black & white "manga" format and reads right-to-left (Japanese style) to keep it consistant with Aoi House (Adam and Shiei's earlier series) and other Seven Seas/Zoom Comics titles.
About Vampire Cheerleaders:
The Bakertown High School cheerleading squad has a secret: behind all their pretty makeup and short skirts are five hungry vampires who sure know how to show their school spirit!
When one of their own turns up missing, the vampire cheerleaders have no other choice but to induct one of the eleventh grade girls from B Squad into their vixenous ranks. Siring new recruit Heather Hartley may be the easy part, but keeping her from turning into a vamp-gone-wild and draining the entire football team on the eve of the big homecoming game is another matter!
About Paranormal Mystery Squad:
Goth girl Stephanie Kane, her bratty sister Katie, and best friend Charlotte have a good thing going. They've made a name for themselves traveling the country in their trusty Winnebago hunting down cryptids and all manner of supernatural beasties. That is, until the organization known as PETM (People for the Ethical Treatment of Monsters) slaps them with a boatload of new regulations and places a court-appointed PETM liaison on their all girl team: the enigmatic, albeit slightly anemic, J.C. Summerfield.
When things go awry during the team's next case, it's Stephanie's kid sister Katie who finds herself in the hairiest situation of her life... literally!
The "Vampire Cheerleaders in Space...and Time?!" story arc is now barreling towards its epic conclusion. Adam's finished the script (give or take a couple of tweaks to the epilogue) and is currently working on various extras for the print collection. All the while, Michael's trying to not go insane from all the wild stuff he to draw page in and page out. So when does it all wrap up online? The last week of January 2015. Mark your calendars!

I showed Shiei a cover of Larry Welz's Cherry #12 the other day and asked her to imagine Aoi House's Echiboo in Sandy's hand there instead of a gerbil. Well, Shiei did better than just imagine... she actually put Echiboo on the cover!
