Vamp is three hundred years old but in all that time, she has never met her match. This all changes one night in a bar when she meets a charming werewolf. FANGS chronicles the humor, sweetness, and awkwardness of meeting someone perfectly suited to you but also vastly different.

FANGS is by Sarah Andersen (of Sarah's Scribbles) and is SFW (occasionally slightly PG).

I saw a couple of these pages on twitter but I hadn't realized there were so many! It's so cute and murderous but mostly cute!

Well, that exceeded my expectations. Good art, good writing; pity there’s not more, as I binged it all during a meeting.

I went to a Sarah Andersen signing about 18 months ago. She's very friendly and modest and charming and funny. She talked a bit about her fine art training and a desire to expand her work beyond 'scribbles'. Glad to see it's working out 🙂. Patreon.

These are great, and I wasn't familiar with the tapas.io site before I came across a mention of FANGS on Twitter yesterday. It turns out that Andersen has also collaborated with Andy Weir on a comic called "Chehire Crossing" that's a whole lot of fun as well.

These are great and so sweet. I'm in love!

I read through this and loved it then was all THIS IS SARAH?? I've been following her for years across a few platforms and I'm so glad to see how well she's doing.

She did this lovely mural in Mexico City recently that I'd love to go and have a silly picture taken with.

I really wish we had a word for people you find when they are developing their skill who you follow and promote where you can and who you feel a sort of familial protectiveness and pride about despite having very little impact in their success. Especially how closely we can connect with people we don't really know.

I had this exact thing with the band Charly Bliss. I got turned onto them when NPR was streaming their first album before it was released and just fell hard for them. Went to see them when they toured through Atlanta and saw them with like fifty other people and jumped up and down and nearly died from smiling. And then like a year later I was seeing them in a HUGE venue opening for Death Cab and I was so...proud of them. Like a beaming older sibling or something. And like, I had such an infinitesimally small part in making that actually happen, but I felt that connection nonetheless.

God they're so great

This is wonderful, thank you! My girlfriend was just showing me the Tapas app yesterday and this got me to download it and subscribe. I’m going to check out Cheshire Crossing too, thanks Ipsifendus.

Kinda reminds me of Marceline. I miss Adventure Time.

Now I'm getting flashbacks to one of the EC Comics which showed the meeting, dating, and marriage (the last one done after they were both dead) of a female vampire and a male werewolf. (The last couple pages showed them celebrating the birth of their baby daughter, who turned out to be longtime EC narrator The Old Witch).

gtrwolf: That story was A Little Stranger! from Haunt of Fear #14, dated July/August 1952. The art's by EC stalwart Graham Ingels and I found some scans.

Jilder: "She did this lovely mural in Mexico City recently that I'd love to go and have a silly picture taken with."

If someone wants to make a post for the blue: This mural was almost immediately intervened/vandalized (depending on your POV) by someone known as Zombra.

The reaction has been...varied to say the least. There's talk of art, of colonialism, of gentrification, of «what is art» and so on. I won't post more links because the whole thing is too tiresome for me, but may serve others as a source of inspiration for a good MeFi post.
