Based on our studies of Blade (one of the finest in the canon, if you ask us), there are only really three things that are effective in combating vampires: garlic, silver and sunlight. Decapitation is also a popular choice, but come on, you’re going to be dead if you’re not fighting Twilight vampires. Which is another thing. What about shimmery vampires? Directors and writers have taken liberties with what is and isn’t effective when it comes to murdering the bloodthirsty undead, so it’s about time someone wrote a definitive guide on it. The Vampire Combat Manual is that guide. It includes detailed illustrations and firsthand accounts from vampire combat veterans that will help keep you alive and breathing if the apocalypse is vampires and not zombies. It will also fit perfectly on your bookshelf next to World War Z.
