“We're incredibly proud of Dance in the Vampire Bund and its continued success,” said publisher Jason DeAngelis. “It's not just the new volumes that are doing well.

Dance in the Vampire Bund is an ongoing manga series that features stunning artwork and an enthrallingly original supernatural narrative about vampire queen Mina Tepes who creates a safe haven for the vampires of the world off the coast of Japan.
