First Look at AMERICAN VAMPIRE Cover #3

“Every time Rafa sends a cover (or anything, really), it makes my day. He's a main driving creative force behind the series - his story-telling instincts, the different tones he creates for my story and Steve's, the expressiveness of the characters, the way he brings them to life on the page... What I love about his covers specifically is the way he manages to conjure up two really compelling but completely different moments from the issue - one from Steve's story and one from mine - and somehow put them together to make this weirdly coherent, beautiful, spooky whole. Like his pages, his covers are bold and striking and fiercely original. The bloody candy gave me chills when I first saw it. I honestly feel like the luckiest guy at Vertigo to get to work with Rafa.” --Scott Snyder, author of AMERICAN VAMPIRE "The idea here was picturing teenage vampire lovers, but in the 'American Vampire way'. I really like the top panel, with the candies and blood. Feel happy about the way this cover came out." --Rafael Albuquerque, artist of AMERICAN VAMPIRE Now, check out Rafael 's cover to AMERICAN VAMPIRE #3: av_03_coverlayercolorvbluelogo
