A love story between a vampire and a werewolf by the creator of the enormously popular Sarah's Scribbles comics.

Elsie the vampire 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 Jimmy, a charming werewolf with a wry sense of humor and a fondness for running wild during the full moon. Together

Decided to download this one off of NetGalley on a whim and I am SO GLAD that I did. This was so stinking cute and it warmed the heck out of my heart. If you're looking for a super fun romance between a VAMPIRE and a WEREWOLF, look no further. This was absolutely adorable. ...more

Hey there,
this is me speaking from the webcomic rabbit hole.
It’s still cozy in here. ;-P

This said, I found this on tapas and was immediately intrigued. I mean a relationship between a vampire and a werewolf? It sounded interesting and I decided to investigate.

So first things first: I know this is titled as a webcomic, but I think this might not be the right description for “Fangs”. This was no story with a central theme but rather little snippets of Elsie’s and Jimmy’s story that starts when the

When you are so perfect for each other but oh, so different...

Super cute graphic novel involving snippets of the life between a vampire and a werewolf. Almost every page with bring a smile if not a chuckle with its humor and wit. The jokes are fun, dark, clever, poke fun and have cute graphics.

I absorbed this book when looking for a break and enjoyed the snippets/glances into their love life in modern society while being paranormal creatures.

Super cute, super fun and a great read!

Elsie’s a vampire and Jimmy’s a werewolf and they’re girlfriend and boyfriend and hilarity ensues and waffle waffle…

Sarah Andersen moves away from her Sarah’s Scribbles gag strips to produce… basically the same thing albeit with less cartoony art and centred around vampire/werewolf tropes.

What’s your type? Elsie asks. Blood type that is!

… ugh…

Did you ever date another werewolf?
Yes, cute girl, but could turn into a real bitch.
And did you ever date a vampire?
Yeah! He sucked.

I've been seeing different sequences from this book around social media on occasion, but I wouldn't have pegged it as something drawn by Sarah Andersen. And I say that with sincere admiration, that she can draw some truly awesome stuff, using wildly different styles too.

For all that I've greatly enjoyed every bit of this little booklet, there's not much of a story in it. And for all my stalling, I was done reading it in an hour. Yes, I definitely took my sweet little time with every single cutes

So typical of Sarah! She's my bias 🖤

Oh the puns.

And the sarcasm.

And the obvious fun illustrations.

This couple is the best!

The vampire girl and the werewolf guy.

Who would have thought eh?

Maybe my Twilight Saga dreams has been made to come to life. Maybe.

But yes, no Jacob vibes or Bella vibes.

This guy is more real and funny. And the girl is sassy real as well.

Damn, Sarah. We have got the same humour. You get me everytime.

When spoken out loud they may turn to lame jokes where nobody laughs but

Thank you to Andrews McMeel Publishing and NetGalley for the E-arc!

Fangs is a short graphic novel following the relationship/romance between a vampire and a werewolf. It is meant to be humorous and fairly light hearted.

Going in, I’d expected something of a coherent story. Instead, every new page of story jumps to a seperate day in the characters’ lives. Normally I wouldn’t mind time skips like this, though things move so quickly that I held no attachment to either protagonist. There is little to

GAHHHHH!!! This is the cutest thing I’ve ever read. This is a weird little cupcake. If you like the aesthetic of Sweeney Todd but make it a new adult rom com.

It is so short. I read it in the bath and had to get out to get another book cause even though I was taking my time soaking up each page, it only took 9 minutes to read. Perfect for a Readathon.

There is not a single page or word or panel that’s unnecessary. A lot of the pages are just one simple line art of the character but i
I would say that each page depicts a scene of beautifully mundane love, except there isn’t anything mundane about vamp or wolf.

Sarah Andersen turns the page from her Scribbles to a love story between a vampire and a warewolf. It was quite cute and funny, with nice drawings and dry black humor.

Well, this was pretty damn cute. I love Sarah Andersen's work, so I knew I needed this in my life as soon as I learned it existed, and I'm so glad I checked it out. I love the general aesthetic of these two, with Elsie being super goth and generally reminding me of Morticia Addams (my WCW forever), and Jimmy being cozy and sweet in his endless flannel apparel. I will say that I wouldn't go into this expecting a cohesive webcomic by any means, as it functions more like Sarah's Scribbles, where we ...more

* I received a free eARC from the publisher via Netgalley. Everything in this review is my honest opinion.

This was SO adorable! I usually love Sarah Andersen's books and this one was no exception! The comics are cute with punny punch lines. The cheese was piled rather high but that was of no concern to me. The artwork is cutesy and simple which I recognize as Sarah's work. It was a really cute book with adorable situations and quite a few memorable moments. If you're looking for a book to pass t

Sarah Anderson has been doing humor/autobio comics through Sarah Scribbles for several years, and here she turns to an actual graphic novel about two goth/hipster twenty-somethings (in body age, anyway; I'll explain), one a vampire, the other a wereolf. Oh, yeah, they are in love. And they hang out watching horror movies, taking moonlit walks and so on. I really like it, and just as I aready to post I see that Sam one stars it and Chad two stars it? Different strokes, I guess. The drawing is gre ...more

This is absolutely adorable comics and I couldn't stop smiling while reading it. I adore Sarah Andersen's work and when I found out about this one I knew I have to read it! It's kind of different from the comics I associated with her so far but it was as brilliant as the rest of them. I loved relationship between Elsie and Jimmy and would love to read about them more!

Thank you so much to NetGalley the publisher for providing me with this review copy in exchange for an honest review!

Vampire girl and werewolf boy meet - and it is the 'fire and ice' love that both have been looking for. These cartoons bring forth very 'human' elements of any relationship (she IS cold as ice and he IS sweaty and hot after running with the pack all night) and it is this perspective that many will find in their own 'fanged' relationships - nice read for a couple into 'horridy' books and movies. ...more

A hackneyed story of a vampire and werewolf falling in love. Andersen makes jokes of the guy acting like a dog (because he's a werewolf, get it?) while the vampire girl makes jokes about her exes sucking. If monster themed dad jokes are your thing, you'll probably love this book. Otherwise, mileage may vary.

This is quite possibly one of the best things I have ever, ever read.

Holy epic adorable-ness! This graphic novel was everything. Both contemporary & paranormal, a vampire & a werewolf date & fall in love. I loved all of the pop culture vamp & wolf references... and this look into the everyday ordinary lives of two paranormal creatures was just absolute perfection. I was laughing out loud, non-stop grinning, & swooning my ass off as my heart physically hurt because this lit

"We should have a baby."
"For dinner?"

A sweet, horrifying, and gently & darkly funny set of cartoons looking at a relationship between a vampire and a werewolf. Love how this collection shows a more polished, lifelike style of art compared to Andersen's 'Sarah's Scribbles' strips. Plays on tropes of romantic comedies, vampires, and werewolves to good effect and by the end I genuinely liked and wanted to see more of each of these murder machines. Highly recommended!

Are you a fan of Sarah Andersen’s “Sarah’s Scribbles” comics? Actually, you know what? It doesn’t matter. This adorable little graphic novel about a budding romance between a vampire and a werewolf packs a whole lot of heart into its 112 pages. I smiled again and again with almost every turn of a page, and I think you might too if dark humor is your jam.

I had not idea that Sarah of Sarah's Scribbles also drew this more refined, and definitely more goth, story about a vampire and a werewolf who fall in love. I adored them. ADORED THEM. I loved Elsie and her dramatic outfits, and Jimmy following her around holding her parasols or sticking his head out the window while she drove. DELIGHTFUL.
This is cute! I said last week that I wanted to read more werewolf comics. Then this showed up as Read Now on Netgalley! I don’t say no to serendipity. This is less a full-fledged narrative and more a series of unrelated/funny panels about a vampire/werewolf relationship.

Very punny, morbid, and gothic humor related to vampire/werewolf lore (jokes related to silver, coffin, thirst for blood, doggish behavior, disappearance in a mirror, etc). The art style isn’t super complex (it’s not as detaile

The ARC of this book was provided by the publisher via Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review.

This is very different from Sarah Andersen's previous work with her adorable scribbles, but it was still so much fun! I loved how she depicted the relationship between Elsie, a vampire, and Jimmy, a werewolf. Even though some of the jokes were kind of clichés they still made me laugh a lot. I highly recommend this quick and fun read!
