    The first (of many, I expect) spin-offs from Killadelphia focuses on Nita Hawes, ex-girlfriend of Killadelphia's main character, who is haunted in more ways than one. Having lost her parents and younger brother to gun violence, she teaches parasociology by day and investigates the supernatural by night, noting it all down on the titular Nightmare Blog. At first glance, it seems like NHNB is ticking the boxes that Killadelphia hasn't gotten to yet - we've had vampires, werewolves, and witches, so The first (of many, I expect) spin-offs from Killadelphia focuses on Nita Hawes, ex-girlfriend of Killadelphia's main character, who is haunted in more ways than one. Having lost her parents and younger brother to gun violence, she teaches parasociology by day and investigates the supernatural by night, noting it all down on the titular Nightmare Blog. At first glance, it seems like NHNB is ticking the boxes that Killadelphia hasn't gotten to yet - we've had vampires, werewolves, and witches, so Nita's haunted by a ghost and fights demons. But once you get into the meat of the story, its intersections with Killadelphia become more apparent and it begins to stand on its own two feet. The central mystery of this first story arc is good, although it's pretty obvious what's going on to the reader much earlier than it is for the rest of the characters. When everything takes a swerve by the third issue or so though, you're already hooked on everything else that's going on that it's almost secondary and doesn't matter as much anyway. Without giving anything away, I'm very invested in Nita's story already, far more than I was with Jimmy in Killadelphia. Her problems feel more palpable since they're literally haunting her most of the time, and she herself feels like a more active player in the plot than Jimmy ever did by this point. Things seemed to happen to him, whereas Nita makes them happen to herself, for better or worse. The artwork begins with Killadelphia penciller Jason Shawn Alexander, before he segues duties to Szymon Kudranski for the latter half. It's not often you see an Image book swap pencillers midway through, but it's not a bad change (and Killadelphia was coming out simultaneously with this first arc, so expecting JSA to do both at once just isn't plausible). Kudranski has a very individual style, but he does fit nicely with the style that Killadelphia is famous for - NHNB feels like its own book, but it's definitely part of the same visual universe. Nita Hawes' first outing takes a second to get going, but by the end of its first arc it'll be difficult to free yourself from its tentacles. This is a spin-off book, but it definitely stands on its own two feet.

    Any kind of talk on the current place of vampires in comics has to include Rodney Barnes and Jason Shawn Alexander’s Killadelphia. It’s become its own horror institution by now, a new standard for the genre. Its mix of classic vamp elements with current sensibilities regarding racism, policing, and violence (with a few Founding Father vampires thrown in as well) have all worked to elevate the story into something that quite simply needed to expand into other series to fully explore.

In comes Nita Hawes’ Nightmare Blog, a separate series set in the vampire world of Killadelphia but with different monsters making the rounds, this time in the city of Baltimore.

    Horror comic series which is quite good Nita writes a blog about demons and the supernatural and she becomes embroiled in a story of demon possession and a whole lot of bloodshed and death. Not for the faint-hearted, this series is illustrated reasonably well with a lot of red used for obvious reasons. It’s OK but not particularly special, although the characters, particularly the main female ones, are well-developed.

    I think the story is much too on the nose, and the art is eye-catching but static.
