Virulents

Virgin Comics editor-in-chief Gotham Chopra sums up this book with the two-word logline “vampire terrorists” in his introduction. The story that follows concerns a squad of soldiers from India and the United States who are tracking down some missing comrades in the border region of Pakistan and Afghanistan. In the process they encounter horribly transformed terrorists. Typical of other offerings from the Virgin line, Virulent serves as a way to introduce American readers to concepts from Indian culture, in this case Raktaveej, under the guise of a horror story.
