"Dames" was a comic short published in "Drawing on Your Nightmares", which was part of the Tales of the Vampires meta-series.


A vampire was walking down a road at night, thinking of how he had gotten into that situation. He had been a grifter playing cards at a Las Vegas casino. He got into the job not for the money, but the excitement. He saw a beautiful woman getting dragged out of the casino by security guards and followed them. Outside he confronted them a and they drew their guns on him. He easily killed them and to his surprise this did not frighten the woman. Instead, she urged him to drive her somewhere. She brought him to a cliff in the middle of the desert and just as he wanted to bite her she threw him in. She later collected his watch and wallet from what she believed was his corpse. Sometime later, he woke up and climbed out the pit and smoked a cigarette, just as the sun was rising, just before he would die.


The story was set during the 1940s, but the exact timing is unknown.
