Pinocchio: Vampire Slayer is a 2009 graphic novel by Dusty Higgins and Van Jensen. A horror-themed follow-up to the original story by Carlo Collodi (where Pinocchio stays a puppet at the end rather than transforming into a real boy), this is an inventive – and often comedic – take on the iconic character, drawn in a highly stylised black-and-white manner. It was named among the Top Ten Graphic Novels for Teens by YALSA in 2010 and the first printing sold out within a few months.
