In the Spotlight: V-Cars, 1955

Vampire Squad, 1955

The Scotland Yard Vampire Squad headed by Soho resident ʻParaffinʼ Jack MacNab first appears in London Calling. With their fleet of distinctive vehicles including Humber Pullman hearses, black Daimler ambulances and converted military vehicles, they patrol the streets of 1950ʼs London.

Their weapons, apart from the traditional wooden stakes, include crossbows and ʻdaylight bulbʼ searchlights. Jack will appear in his own spinoff colour graphic novel Paint it Black.

Iʼve also designed a Steampunk version of the squad for possible future use.

        That page doesn’t mention Paint it Black, I was hoping to learn it’s release date, or maybe a rough estimate of it. I bought London Calling and I liked it a lot, now I am looking for more!
