King and American Vampire

Posted: April 19, 2011, 08:48:34

Many of you have asked if I know if King will be back with American Vampire and here's the best answer we can get at the moment. It's from an interview with Scott Snyder at AICN.


[Interviewer: O]ne more thing about AMERICAN VAMPIRE. I was wondering if there were any word on Stephen King ever coming back and doing some more stuff?

SS: He teases it. Hes doing a little piece, a foreword, for us in prose for the volume two which is out in May, which we are really excited about which collects issues six through eleven. But he always has an open door man. I talk to him a lot. We send him every issue and hes always chiming in about where hed like to be, so my hope is we are really, really thrilled about what we have planned for the fifties. I have a big, big twist and a new character I want to bring in that is sort of our version of a Punisher. Hes a character who has actually been tucked into the series earlier in a hidden way and my feeling is that if he comes back at any point, it will probably be there. I think that he cant really resist hot rods and vampires.

The creative process behind a cover...

Posted: January 15, 2010, 12:35:06

Bev Vincent posted this on his board:


The somewhat controversial "Sunpire" (that is to say, Vampires fueled by the sun rather than killed by it) aspects behind Stephen King and Scott Snyder's upcoming Vertigo title "American Vampire" may have some would-be readers wary - especially in lieu of the "Twilight" films' sparkly motifs - but I gotta say, Rafael Albuquerque's art makes me forget all about that noise.

Over at Vertigo's Graphic Content blog, Albuquerque gives readers a rundown on his creative process behind building the cover image for the series' second issue.

It's a pretty interesting look at his approach to composing a striking cover, especially his closing remarks about color choice.

The best part is that, judging from the light sources in the image, fans won't have to worry about the series' fanged protagonist sparkling when the series hits in March.

You can also see more of how the cover was created here.
