Requiem or Requiem Chevalier Vampire (French for Requiem Vampire Knight) is a Franco-British comic, published by Nickel Editions. It is translated in English and published by Heavy Metal in the USA. It is also translated in German and published in Germany by Kult Editions as Requiem Der Vampirritter. The story is written by Pat Mills (best known for his work on Sline, Charley's War and ABC Warriors) and the pictures are drawn by Olivier Ledroit (early volumes of the Black Moon Chronicles). The comic is characterized by its extreme violence and each issue is more daring and is darker than the previous one. Sadomasochism is well common in this comic and there are several scenes of violent sex. There is a lot of cynical humor too. About one edition is released a year, with a total of 12 issues is expected. Because of the financial weaknesses of Nickel issues had to be released every 8 months at first; with Requiem's successes more time is given to the artists to work. For ease of upload Issues 1 & 2 and 3 & 4 are combined into 2 CBR files, respectively.
As Mills himself explained, "Requiem is inspired by re-incarnation themes which is something else I’m very heavily into. I gave talks on the subject to the Psychic Questing Conference for a couple of years. That gives you some idea of how very seriously I take the subject."
The story is set in a world called Rsurrection that appears to be hell. In Rsurrection people are re-incarnated into monsters according to the sins of their life. The lowest ranks are formed by zombies whilst vampires form the elite of the society and the ruling class. The more one was cruel in his life, the better he is rewarded on Rsurrection. There is therefore, no concept of justice in "Requiem Chevalier Vampire". Rsurrection has an environment similar to Earth, but everything appears to be the opposite. Land has replaced the oceans while seas of perpetual fire occupies our known continents. People do not get older but are rejuvenating until they become fetuses and ultimately are forgotten; their memories follows the same cycle and are "lost" as people get younger. In order to avoid madness in this process Rsurrection's residents are addicted to a drug based on black opium.
