Though we’re in the midst of Skinner and Pearl’s first storyline, get ready to look ahead as we unveil the bonus features in this can’t-miss collection on sale September 29 in comic stores and October 5 everywhere books are sold!

Now that we’re back in the office after an extended weekend I was thinking what better way to kick things up than to reveal the next variant cover to the awesome new series AMERICAN VAMPIRE?

Creating a Cover, AMERICAN VAMPIRE #3 Coming up with a cool cover is hard. Rafael Albuquerque made things a little easier with AMERICAN VAMPIRE because he had the simple but brilliant idea of cutting the layout in half with the logo—two stories, two scenes, united by the logo.

When Andy Kubert (son of comics legend Joe Kubert) provides a cover, we really don't need to use a ton of words. So I’m gonna let the picture do the talking for the variant cover of AMERICAN VAMPIRE #3. Check it out below and look for it in stores May 19th!
