AMERICAN VAMPIRE Volume 1 Extras

Why Rafael Albuquerque is Amazing (or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Hire a Cover Artist) We weren’t even thinking about him for the covers. We knew we wanted something that said “horror” but could also be literary and elegant too. We wanted a strong design that showcased a cool logo and the creator’s names. A daunting task. I thought about it constantly. We were throwing around a lot of names, some big names, some unknowns. But we certainly weren’t even considering Rafael Albuquerque for the covers—he was too busy kicking ass on the interiors.

AMERICAN VAMPIRE: What next?

Cycle 2 “Devil in the Sand” (issues 6-9) In this story… • We learn the secret history of Las Vegas, before it became the Vegas we know today (hint: vampires are involved). • We meet the organization of vampire hunters that has been operating behind the scenes of history for centuries. • We see how the descendents of the “House of Book” continue to seek revenge on Skinner Sweet. • We meet a new character who carries a heavy burden and will play a major role in the future of the American Vampire universe.

The first I loved (but was a little too noir-ish), and the 2nd I loved even more.
