Mister Quinlan Becomes

For five years, Quinlan has fought as a centurion. Three years as a gladiator before that. Quinlan knows more about fighting then most others could ever imagine. He is glad to have a good reason to fight, much more than being pitted against another person, for the sake of entertainment. He is fighting for freedom. As a free man.

We’ve learned a bit more regarding the Ancients and the Master. And while the Ancients are vulnerable to the sun, they do have an agent who walks among man in their stead. Quinlan is given a broad outline of what the Ancients have overseen. And a puzzling statement regarding his future. Later that day, after some insubordination by one of his soldiers, Quinlan’s nature is revealed, and forces the Ancient’s agent to stand beside him, against their own men.

“As for the rest, my friend… I plan to test the limits of your mighty sword arm.” – Ceasar to Quinlan

Ceasar commands Quintus and his friend Decimus to take a small brigade against outrageous odds. We learn that even among his warriors, there are those that are working for the Master. And here is when the story really seems like our hero will have his hands full.

Bringing you Quinlan

Lapham’s writing makes Quinlan seem amazing. While you would not want to be on his wrong side, he would be an incredible ally to have. Trained in several forms of battle, and with the heightened abilities gifted him from the Master, makes Quinlan almost unstoppable.

It’s not too late, you can still pick up some of the earlier copies of The Strain: Mister Quinlan – Vampire Hunter at your local bookstore, comic shop, or even online for $3.99 US. Issue #3 arrives in stores and online on November 9, 2016.
