Vertigo First Look: AMERICAN VAMPIRE #12


Vertigo provided us with a first look at American Vampire #12.
American Vampire is a comic book series created by writer Scott Snyder. The first five issues featured two stories — one by Snyder and the other by Stephen King, both drawn by Rafael Albuquerque. As of the sixth issue, Scott Snyder has taken over as sole writer.
The series explores notions of vampire evolution and traces the bloodline of a new kind of vampire, an American species, with new powers and characteristics, through various decades of American history.

Want to know more about Skinner Sweet? In this stand alone issue, it’s 1924 when the first American vampire crosses paths with a Wild West show featuring some old pals and enemies from his outlaw days – and he is not happy. From the dying West to flying biplanes, we see how Skinner adjusts to life in the 20th century.
