The RPG universe is full of stories, from the most fanciful, to some that involve everyday life and futuristic ones. Only there is one, which fits in any of them: the horror one. Whether medieval, a cosmic terror or those that lurk in big cities waiting for their prey.

And this is where Vampire: The Masquerade becomes one of the main protagonists of this genre. In this universe, vampires are not just those who look like Dracula or Nosferatu, or even some from the world of Anne Rice, as Lestat. They gain their own style where politics, family (clans), history, powers, among other issues, greatly enrich this narrative.

Vampire: The Masquerade – COMIC VOL 1 – Fangs of Winter, released in Brazil by Galapagos, is practically this entire RPG universe, with the difference that here the player will not create their characters, but just understand a little more of the events involving the Mask.

This first volume, comprising the first 6 editions (which come with beautiful postcards representing the original covers released in the USA), with beautiful art, exciting stories, with a beautiful plot and an excellent hardcover finish, which is undoubtedly something to stick with your RPG books.

But it stands to reason that if you've never played any kind of RPG or even Vampire, you don't have to worry. Vampire: The Masquerade – COMIC VOL 1 – Fangs of Winter is a graphic novel that the reader can read and immerse themselves in without any problems. No prior knowledge of RPG is required. Even so, the new reader may get lost at some points in the reading, such as, for example, the names of the clans and even what the Mask is.

This is somewhat intentional, as one of the main characters in the plot is a clanless novice vampire, who knows nothing about the vampire world and its rules. And in this way, the reader is practically this character being introduced to the secrets of the hunters and the hunted.
