About the Books

Global best-selling World of Darkness RPG phenomena, VAMPIRE: The Masquerade and WEREWOLF: The Apocalypse are captured together for the first time in a complete series omnibus edition, featuring VAMPIRE: The Masquerade Winter's Teeth issues #1-#10 and the crossover Vampire: The Masquerade and World of Darkness: CRIMSON THAW event series, issues #1-#3!


VAMPIRE: THE MASQUERADE The Complete Series collects all 10 issues of Vampire: The Masquerade: Winter’s Teeth and all 3 issues of the never-before-collected vampire/werewolf crossover World of Darkness: Crimson Thaw, plus more than 30 pages of original roleplaying supplements, including lore sheets for playable characters featured in the series!!

Vampire: The Masquerade: Winter’s Teeth

A tale of two vampires in the Twin Cities…

When Cecily Bain, an enforcer for the Twin Cities’ vampiric elite, takes a mysterious new vampire, Alejandra, under her wing, she’s dragged into an insidious conspiracy. After learning a disturbing fact about her fake child’s past, Cecily must keep her secrets close, and Ali at arm’s length. As she searches the streets of the Twin Cities for answers, a terrifying possibility surfaces: perhaps Ali has learned the ways of the Kindred better than Cecily herself. Meanwhile, on the outskirts of the cities, Colleen Pendergrass, embraced by her husband against her will, and a rebellious found-family of vampire cast-outs investigates a vicious killing.

As the unlives of the Kindred twine together and betrayals are unearthed, will Cecily be able to escape and save what’s left of her family, or will she be yet another pawn sacrificed to maintain the age-old secret: that vampires exist among the living?

World of Darkness: Crimson Thaw

There's worse living in the shadows than vampires … something with even bigger teeth.

Cecily Bain has become everything she never wanted as The Prince of the Twin Cities. But her rule over a fractured, backbiting vampire court is interrupted by an intruder: something big, hairy, and full of teeth. For over a century, werewolves of the Twin Cities have protected their blessed places from threats both physical and spiritual. When vampires under Cecily’s rule move in on one of these precious sites, it’s a declaration of war, one that Tyrell ‘the Stainless’ Stinar and his ferocious pack will avenge at any cost, even if that includes slaying one of their own. The immortal enmity between the Kindred and the Garou comes to a head on the streets of the Twin Cities!

VAMPIRE: THE MASQUERADE: THE COMPLETE SERIES includes more than 30 pages of EXCLUSIVE canonical roleplaying supplements enabling readers to play characters, locations, and scenarios from the comics in their Vampire: The Masquerade 5th Edition campaigns, including lore sheets for playable characters featured in the series.

My Review

As I started reading VAMPIRE: THE MASQUERADE, it reminded me of the short-lived '90s television series Kindred: The Embraced and I later realized they're both based on the old tabletop role-playing game. The comic book series takes place in the fictitious gothic-punk World of Darkness, which is in Minneapolis-Saint Paul, Minnesota, and is home to immortal vampires known as Kindred. Known as the Masquerade, they hide their existence from humans for their own protection. 


This edition includes issues #1–10 of VAMPIRE: THE MASQUERADE: Winter's Teeth and issues #1–3 of the crossover event series VAMPIRE: THE MASQUERADE and World of Darkness: Crimson Thaw. Each VAMPIRE: THE MASQUERADE issue had two stories: the Winter's Teeth and The Anarch Tales


VAMPIRE: THE MASQUERADE: THE COMPLETE SERIES is a gory, terrifying story with a lot of bite, and overall, I liked it. The primary, overarching plot was brilliantly crafted and included much world-building. The graphics have a nostalgic early 1990s feel about them. I don't know if this was deliberate, but it works great here. I heartily suggest the book to other horror enthusiasts and vampire lovers. ╌★★★★★
