AMERICAN VAMPIRE writer Scott Snyder was recently profiled for THE ONION’S A.V. CLUB. “In the ’40s cycle that we just finished in American Vampire, I knew that Henry was going to feel his own mortality because Pearl isn’t getting older, but he is,” Snyder said. “There’s this huge, epic war going on around the world and he isn’t a part of it. So my feeling was, where can we put him? What context can we put him in that’s going to really challenge or reflect his psychology at that moment? So, you realize the Pacific. He’s isolated; he can be all by himself out there in this small platoon.” AMERICAN VAMPIRE continues with issue #20, in stores next week.
