The Nocturnes

The Nocturnes

By DCE Editorial Monday, January 16th, 2012
Last week I gave a few clues about what’s coming up in 2012. One of the clues was “do you remember the Nocturnes?” Well, I was talking about AMERICAN VAMPIRE. The Nocturnes are a band that you’ll be seeing soon in the pages of AV in a two-part story called (duh) “The Nocturnes” with incredible art by Roger Cruz. Some of you might think you know Roger Cruz, but trust me, you don’t. AV artist and co-creator Rafael Albuquerque called me one day to ask me if I knew Roger’s work. “Sure,” I said. “X-Men guy, right?” Indeed, Roger had done some X-Men back in the day, but as Rafael told me and I quickly learned, that’s not his “true” style… Roger is an incredibly versatile and talented guy. That’s why we’ve asked him to come on board for this two-part story about the deep south, Doo-wop music, and a haunted man named Calvin Poole. Remember him? If not, you will. And you'll remember The Nocturnes too... [gallery link="file"]
