The long awaited return of AMERICAN VAMPIRE is nearing. Set to ramp up in March 2014, the series picks up with our favorite vampires in the notorious 1960s. What’s in store for Skinner Sweet and Pearl Jones? We’ll have to wait and see.
"AMERICAN VAMPIRE definitely has a special flavor,” says series artist and co-creator Rafael Albuquerque. “After working daily with these characters for so long, Scott and I feel connected to them, just as if they were real people, somehow. Returning to that feels like getting back home after a long, long trip."
You are cordially invited to a party—to die for!
This month AMERICAN VAMPIRE arrives with an anthology featuring an array of stories set in the world of AMERICAN VAMPIRE. With “lost tales,” new characters and old favorites, these incredible stories are told some of the most talented writers and artists in the industry. Here’s the full line-up:

Co-written by Scott Snyder and ongoing series artist Rafael Albuquerque this one-shot features the return of fan-favorite character Travis Kidd—the vampire hunter who likes to “bite them back!”
Earlier today, MTV GEEK announced that fan favorite vampire hunter Travis Kidd makes his return in AMERICAN VAMPIRE: THE LONG ROAD TO HELL #1. Co-written by Scott Snyder and Rafael Albuquerque with art and cover by series artist Rafael Albuquerque, AMERICAN VAMPIRE: THE LONG ROAD TO HELL arrives on June 12 as an oversized special issue with variant cover by Tony Moore.
Well “The Blacklist” continues to unfold in AMERICAN VAMPIRE and we celebrate with another awesome variant cover from FRANCESCO FRANCAVILLA!
I’ve been a big fan of Francesco’s for a few years (also one of the nicest dudes you’ll ever meet in comics) and it turns out he’s a big fan of the series too! So when I asked him if he’d do a variant cover for us, he leapt at the opportunity to do his version of “our gal Pearl.”
