Top Cow has announced Impaler will get an ongoing series from the company.  The vampire thriller by William Harms with art by Matt Timson has had success with the first trade paperback, thus more vamp stories are on the way.

“Vampires continue to resonate with people – just look at the success of properties like HBO’s True Blood and Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight books,” said Top Cow’s VP Marketing and Sales Mel Caylo in a prepared statement. “We recognized Impaler is truly a fresh, new spin on the ‘vampire mythos’ and were excited to keep the story going. We think it has the potential to be like Walking Dead, but for vampires.”

In the first story arc of Impaler, a derelict cargo ship is found adrift offshore during a terrible blizzard in New York City. When New York’s Finest is sent to investigate the missing crew, an unspeakable horror is unleashed that quickly spreads all over the snow-covered borough, as a vampire plague quickly moves through the city’s population. The people’s only hope lies in Vlad Tepes, the real-life historical inspiration for the vampire legend, Dracula. Vlad the Impaler arrives to defend the city from the ever-growing vampire horde, but how much can one man do against an army of thousands?
