Wednesday Webcomics: “Lesbiampires”
Fab, the Argentinan creator of Lesbiampires, tells the story of lesbian vampires who feed off humans in order to survive.
Lesbiampires tells the story of lesbian vampires such as Daphne and Veronika. In this story, which takes place in the current coronavirus pandemic, humans are the villains, with the vampires having to eat them in order to live. It has adult situations and themes and should be read by mature audiences, especially due to its bloody content at times.
On the one hand, the comic tells the peaceful home lives of Daphne and Veronika, who live together. On the other, it tells their back stories and has episodes where they go out for the “hunt” so they can feed off humans to survive.
Lesbiampires has compelling characters and a storyline centering around Daphne and Veronika. The webcomic emphasizes themes like self-worth, acceptance, and lesbian romance. Like other fictional vampires, these characters have to avoid exposure to the Sun so they aren’t burned to a crisp and down to the bone. This makes them somewhat analogous to the half-Black bisexual vampire-demon, Marceline the Vampire Queen in Adventure Time, or even the recent vampires in anime, like those headlining the series Ms. Vampire who lives in my neighborhood, and Vlad Love, to name two prominent series. It also makes me think of the webcomic by InVenus titled Venus & Lyra are Soulmates, which focuses on a growing romance between a vampire queen and an alpha werewolf, or potchimew’s Vampire Girlfriends.
The webcomic, which has more than 150 episodes, is compelling and has diversity in its characters beyond Daphne and Veronika. Fab’s art style and design allows for the characters to pop out from the page and make a impression, making readers that much more invested in the webcomic as a whole. Fab does a wonderful job providing the backstories of characters, especially Daphne and Veronica, and outlining their motivations so people can understand where the characters are coming from. That makes the webcomic that much more compelling and interesting to those who are reading it.
The webcomic is a labor of love, but it is so smooth and well done that sometimes you can get pulled into the story and the characters, making you forget you are reading a webcomic but feeling you are part of the story itself. Fab also uses the comic to comment on things like the fascination with sexy vampires in series like Twilight books and films.
Lesbiampires is available to read on WebToon.
