Read Kim Reaper for Free; Sequel Announced
Sarah Graley put out Kim Reaper through Oni Press last year, with a collection in February. Now a sequel has been announced. Kim Reaper: Vampire Island is a four-issue miniseries that brings back Kim and Becka.
College relationships are tough for everyone, but they’re EXTRA hard for Kim. Her grumpy grim reaper bosses are always mad at her, her girlfriend Becka’s roommate keeps hanging around, and now everybody is super into vampires for some reason! And she accidentally let slip that she knew about an island full of them?! Oops, better pack up your scythe — we’re all going on a really weird date!
Kim Reaper: Vampire Island will launch September 5. The first issue can be preordered from your local comic book store with code JUL18 2045; it’s $3.99 for 32 pages. There’s also a variant cover by Katy Farina that can be ordered with code JUL18 2046.
To allow readers to catch up, the first book, Grim Beginnings, is being serialized online with a new page every weekday.
Like most university students, Kim works a part-time job to make ends meet. Unlike most university students, Kim’s job is pretty cool: She’s a grim reaper, tasked with guiding souls into the afterlife.
Like most university students, Becka has a super intense crush. Unlike most university students, Becka’s crush is on a beautiful gothic angel that frequents the underworld. Of course, she doesn’t know that.
Unaware of the ghoulish drama she’s about to step into, Becka finally gathers up the courage to ask Kim on a date! But when she falls into a ghostly portal and interrupts Kim at her job, she sets off a chain of events that will pit the two of them against angry cat-dads, vengeful zombies, and perhaps even the underworld itself. But if they work together, they just might make it… and maybe even get a smooch in the bargain.
