Go To
Cuz you don't know shit about vampire clothes
A comic being drawn by Spoonyliger.

Inspired by the new blood of Vampire media, Moon Crest 24 brings the night walkers into the daylight of a Manga-styled Graphic Novel.

Drake and Daniel, two legendary vampire warriors died in a decisive battle at the end of a demonic, underworld war. Or so they thought... 5000 years later their restless souls reside inside the minds of two young vampire lads, Derek and Dwayne. And as if that weren't enough, the same demons who fell during the war are now being brought back to life. It's up to Drake and Daniel to reunite and work together to figure out what went wrong 5000 years ago!

This comic has examples of:

  • All Men Are Perverts: All except for Daniel, it seems like.
  • Animal Motifs: Lucy's is ladybugs; Rachel's is bunnies.
    • Non animal motifs: Dory's is moons and stars; Liz's is skulls and hearts.
  • Anime Hair: Drake and Daniel have pretty zany hair, alright!
    • Hair Antennae: With an antennae as long and zig-zaggy as Drake's.
    • Delinquent Hair: Derek would be a good example. Not even just the color choice, his hairstyle would make your grandma pull out her rosary and hide in her closet.
    • Hot-Blooded Sideburns: Drake's icicle-like sideburns.
    • Long-Haired Pretty Boy: Dwayne wears this trope with pride.
    • Lucy's boyfriend, Chris has a pair of bangs. Quite fitting his goth/emo... thing.
    • Spiky Hair & Shonen Hair: Daniel's hair is like a mix between Super Saiyan 3 hair and Sephiroth's long bangs.
  • Aura Vision: Lucy seems to have this in a way akin to reading heatsignatures.
  • Badass Cape: Belonging to Drake. Derek also has one when he's first introduced, though it's worn and ragged
  • Beach Episode: Chapter 5, with plenty of Fanservice coming from the beach goers.
  • BFS: Inverted; Drake uses a rapier. Justified with the Ice Titan, seeing as he's a titan.
  • Black Eyes of Evil: Averted, Derek has what are basically black circles for his eyes with no sclera to speak of, but is far from evil.
  • Bland-Name Product: KB Games and Cool Topic.
  • Blank White Eyes
  • Cast Full of Pretty Boys: Do any of the men look like they have even one sport of hair on their chests?
  • Catchphrase: "What the fetch?"
  • Chaste Hero: Derek doesn't quite get why Dory laughs at him when she sees him with Lucys clothes on, poor guy thinks he put them on backwards.
  • Classic Villain: From his evil laugh to his twisted perspective on mankind, Aleck Von Zander is a villain of villains.
  • Conveniently Empty Building: Averted, people can be seen inside the building the Ice Titan cut down. And in a later page, students are calling family to check on them and one is grieving over her sister.
  • Crippling Overspecialization: Art wise in the earlier chapters, characters are detailed and well drawn. Backgrounds, not so much, or at all.
  • Cute Little Fangs: They look cool on Drake, but they're more adorable than menacing on Derek.
  • Does This Remind You of Anything?: Using a drill to escape an underground colony, hmm...
  • Evil Tower of Ominousness: Aleck von Zander stands on one in the prologue.
  • Face Palm: Daniel as he berates Dwayne for his obsession with the female body.
  • Ghostly Chill: From Claudia and her "ghostly hugs".
  • Giving Up the Ghost: By Rachel and Dory when they first meet Derek.
  • Good Wings, Evil Wings: Aleck von Zander is notable for having both a pair of angelic, and demonic wings. Though the angelic ones are smaller and very fluffy.
  • Healing Factor: Demons have this.
  • Humans Are the Real Monsters: Conversed by Aleck von Zander, and appears to be the reason for his Fallen Angel status, as he preaches that vampires were forced to protect something they didn't believe in.
  • I See Dead People: Lucy's eyes can only perceive heat signatures. As a consequence, she's able to see spirits.
  • I Shall Taunt You: Aleck to Drake, pretty much gets as close to a "Come at me bro!" without saying it verbatim.
  • Kamehame Hadoken: During the Beach Episode chapter, Derek attacks a demon Coconut-Crab with a volleyball. A move which Lucy describes as very powerful Volleyball spike technique called the Kame Ball. Named after the turtle-like shape the ball takes while in motion.
  • Names to Run Away from Really Fast: Aleck Von Zander.
  • Nose Bleed
  • Odd Couple: Dwayne and Daniel.
  • Older Than They Look: Y'know, cause they're vampires.
  • Our Vampires Are Different: Vampires are apparently a subdivision of demons rather than their own race, also notable for not having the standard weakness to the sun, and actually wanting to be in its light.
  • Shout-Out: the comic has a few of these here and there. However, the Beach Episode chapter is chock-full of them. Can you spot them all?
  • Skilled, but Naive: Drake's got the skills, Derek's got the naivety.
  • Shut Up, Hannibal!: Right at the beginning by Daniel, but it does not end well.
  • Smoking Is Cool: Chris smokes, but not to be cool. In fact he says he hates it.
  • Split Personality: Derek and Drake are the same person...except not.
  • Sweat Drop
  • Technicolor Eyes: Lucy has these, not in regard to her actual eye color but her heat signature vision - that being black (coldest), orange (warm), and white (hottest).
  • This Is a Drill: Dwayne's weapon, named the Long Horn.
  • Three-Point Landing: Derek does this when he's first seen by the girls up close.
  • Unusually Uninteresting Sight: Being teleported in a gust of light from a cemetery to her dorm room doesn't seem to faze Lucy in the slightest. Averted later on when she discusses it with Rachel and Dory.
  • Wholesome Crossdresser: Played with when Derek dresses in Lucy's clothes after his first shower in months. Since Lucy threw out his old clothes in order to keep people from associating him to the Ice Titan's attack, she decided that it was a good idea to lend him her t-shirt and pants. Just until they go to Cool Topic to get him actual (emo) boy clothes.
  • With Great Power Comes Great Insanity: Drake accuses Aleck of this.
