He is a vampire that cosplays as a pirate becouse he bets that no-one will expect that the deal of this obviously pirate-looking dude is that he is secretly a vampire, instead of being possessed by the ghost of Blackbeard or something.

Also just to clear this up, Davey is definitely a pirate as well as a vampire right? Nobody's got a hook hand AND a name like that without being a pirate, surely

He's an investor, so yes.

Is it just me, or does Davy's non-hook hand in that last panel look weird?



I could be parsing the image completely wrong, but it's like his palm is the wrong way around.

Yeah, I was wondering if she is just that much younger since it’s still using a photo of Spender as a kid. Or if she was disowned even earlier. Bonus points if they’re BOTH gay.

Hmm, now I will be disappointed if "for profit blood drives" will be anything but people paying for privilege of donating blood for such a worthy cause. That would fit someone like Bill Spender and Davy Jones just way too well.

obviously people pay a fee to donate blood, and the bank also charges for the blood, and there's a hefty amount of blood embezzlement which gets recouped through additional surcharges. It's like you've never seen American healthcare before!

It's worse than that. Considering he is introduced as a successful businessman who privatized the hospital, and is the chief of police in the present, it's almost certain that the "police" was turned into some kind of private security joint. He isn't even a republican cop. He is a Pinkerton.

I mean he made them into his literal thralls so now they are all dependent on the pleasure of having their blood sucked. Davy definitely used that to his advantage.

my point is that the police is a private security joint

if davy has money he probably didn't even need to turn the cops into vampires

I mean if he wants to violate the masquerade in front of all these cops I'm still sure making them Thralls is pretty important.

She's not a mothman, she's possibly a Spender. Though it's odd that she had nothing to say about the club liaison being her relative. But like others said, she could be ashamed of it.
