Durham Red

The idea of vampirism as a mutation was squeezed into the Strontium Dog universe in the shape of Durham Red but (wisely) has avoided defining it too clearly. Originally just a side character for Johnny Alpha (after the death of Wulf left a sidekick gap), Durham got her own series just after the franchise crashed during The Final Solution.

Peter Hogan wrote Durham into the Strontium Dogs sequence, mixing her arc with that of Feral and the rebooted Gronk. As that pathway was abandoned, Dan Abnett felt the wisest move was to jump far into the future and play Durham as a sort of living goddess. In the modern era, Alec Worley has provided some long-form, gritty, yet Dog-contemporary tales for Durham to ... sink her teeth into.
