Vampire Hunter D
The series was announced in July , but was confirmed to be cancelled at the Long Beach Comic Con, as a result of creative differences between Devil's Due and the license holders. The plot of American Wasteland was for the first time to see the titular Vampire Hunter D arrive on the shores of America , a land where the vampiric Nobility persists, uninterrupted by those who seek to destroy them. There, D would have embarked on a journey inland while bringing their menace to an end. To date, twenty-six novels have been published in the main series, with some novels comprising as many as four volumes. The series has also spawned anime, audio drama, manga, and comic adaptations, as well as a short story collection, art books, and a supplemental guide book.
It was first published in Japan in When a young woman travelling across the scarred wastelands is murdered over the possession of a strange jewel, she entrusts the gem, with her final breath, to the mysterious Vampire Hunter known as D, and charges him with a desperate mission—to deliver the priceless stone to her sister, far off in a fishing village on the shores of the North Sea. D's journey is made ever more perilous by the motley unsavory scoundrels enlisted by the girl's murderer, who will stop at nothing to claim the jewel. Determined the hunter will not reach his destination, the villains are relentless in their pursuit, one of them harboring a secret, deadly agenda of his own. The picturesque coastal town of Florence was known for millennia as a pleasure resort for the Nobility. As retribution for their decadence, the cruel and beautiful vampire inhabitants were "punished," driven out more than a thousand years ago by a solitary traveler in black.
