Description reads:

Is this book mankind’s only hope? Discover the history of the Occido Lumen in The Strain’s animated prequel.

He and his team are called upon to investigate a mysterious viral outbreak with hallmarks of an ancient and evil strain of vampirism. As the strain spreads, Eph, his team, and an assembly of everyday New Yorkers, wage war for the fate of humanity itself.
