Vampire Fraud

Serial killer John George Haigh knew the power of the monstrous image to incite horror into people's minds, and even today he is cited as a murderer who drank a cup of blood from his victims before getting rid of their bodies. He's found on nearly every list of "modern vampires," which attests to his own insight in just how far his legend would carry. However, there's no evidence that he had such a fetish and plenty of reason to believe that he was malingering a mental illness that would get him sent to a mental institution.

Fat Vampire
Douglas Lee is 15, out-of-shape, pasty and essentially ignored. He'd be completely invisible if it weren't for his mom's cooking. Her garlic has given him bruschetta-like body odor, emitted in PE class, and an unappealing nickname.Meatball.Doug is also "Fat Vampire," the unexpected undead unhero of Adam Rex's hilarious new twist on the genre.
