'NEXT GREAT CARTOONIST': The story behind today's bloody-good 'IMOGEN QUEST'

(click image to embiggen)

Here's today's "Imogen Quest" comic from Olivia Walch, the 21-year-old winner of The Post's "America's Next Great Cartoonist Contest." So, what's the story here: Is Walch trying to tell us she's no fan of the vampire trend?

"Every time I go home," Walch tells Comic Riffs with her signature wryness, "my parents leave brochures for Vampire Academy and copies of the Twilight novels just lying around. I'm like, 'i get what you're saying, Mom and Dad, but I just don't think that terrorizing the night is for me.' "

If you have feedback about "Imogen Quest's" monthlong run in Style and on Comic Riffs, feel free to share your impressions.
