http://www.comixology.com/Udon/comics-publisher/48-0

In Darkstalkers, the fate of the world seems to have taken a bleak and ominous turn. Slowly, but steadily, increasing numbers of supernatural, inhuman creatures have inexplicably begun to walk the Earth. Coming in numerous shapes and sizes — as vampires, werewolves, zombies and ghosts — these beings that have brought fear to the night have come to be known by one name: The Darkstalkers. Some Darkstalkers prey on humans, while others try to live in peace with them. Still, others are too busy fighting amongst themselves to even care what humans do. Based on the fan-favourite video game series from CAPCOM!
