Vampires Need Love Too! • The Eight Deadly Sins

Vampire Jhonen is searching for love and happiness while striving to be a Blues musician. Undead life with bats, goblins, witches, zombies and other vampires isn't easy for him. Especially when he frequents and plays his music at a Tavern filled with Death and chaos. While trying to relax at his local Undead Cafe, he brushes up on his living dead education by reading the good book of Vampire Deity Alexandra.
... (Ellen Dubin, Krista Allen & Josh Zuckerman are a few of the famous talents interested in voicing characters for this animated cartoon series. Also, Brian is striving to find producers and a network to air the episodes.)
