nd Case1cov 205x300 All ages comics and manga for 9/15/10Nancy Drew: The New Case Files Volume 1 Nancy Drew Vampire Slayer – Papercutz restarts Nancy Drew with new case files, and her first case is not to be missed. The “Dielite” novels and movies are creating Vampire-mania among the teenage girls of River Heights. A supposedly “real” handsome young vampire arrives in town, and it’s up to Nancy to expose him as a fraud. Will she be able to do it? Or will she fall under his dark spell? Is all the vampire madness just a distraction from some dark and sinister plot that is happening, and is it related to what’s happening in Bayport, home of the Hardy Boys? While riffing on both Twilight and Buffy: The Vampire Slayer, this volume also seems to sets up for a cross-over with the Hardy Boys. It’s also a good title for Halloween, which is coming up very soon.
