SCRIPT2COMIC GRAND PRIZE WINNER ‘SHE BITES’ TO LAUNCH AT NEW YORK COMIC-CON WITH ULTRA-LIMITED EDITION SECRET VARIANT COVER THAT FANS CAN COLLECT FOR FREE VIA SCAVENGER HUNT.

OCTOBER 6th, 2021 – NEW YORK COMIC-CON – There are blood-stained fliers posted somewhere on the streets of New York advertising a babysitting job for a very unique child. If fans find a flyer and answer the call – a job offer to babysit a 134-year-old vampire trapped in a 9-year-old’s body — they will be rewarded with a super-secret limited-edition variant cover of the premiere issue of the comic SHE BITES written by Heather Hale for free.

SHE BITES (formerly known as VAMPIRE’S BABYSITTER) was the Grand Prize Winner of the 2020 Script2Comic Contest, a unique screenplay contest where the winning scripts get made into comics series. Scout Comics, one of the sponsors of the contest, is publishing SHE BITES which will release in February of 2022 through Lunar, Diamond and Simon & Schuster. The book is written and lettered by creator Heather Hale, with art by Diigii Daguna.

It’s 1997 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. A 134-year-old vampire, in the body of a 9-year-old girl, is squatting in a run-down basement apartment. She is Elsie Baker, and she can’t even buy her own cigarettes because adults won’t take her seriously. In order to move among the normal undetected, she must find a willing human to act as her babysitter.

Enter Brenda Zelinski, a depressed 18-year-old who was rejected from her dream college and is stuck in her hometown with no plans and no hope. All Brenda wants is a quick pay-day so she can afford to fly to Scotland and jump off a cliff to end her miserable life in grand fashion.

Together, these two lost souls form an unlikely friendship around their mutual disdain for literally everyone else.
