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."

"I've missed AMERICAN VAMPIRE so much it's downright scary," says writer and co-creator Scott Snyder. "In the interm, Rafa and I have planned and plotted a lot, and I think it's safe to say that for both of us, there is no project more exciting or important than this one. We cannot wait to bring you all back to the world of AMERCAN VAMPIRE this spring. The best stories are coming-promise."

Now is the perfect time to catch up on all 5 volumes of the original series and, if you haven’t picked it up yet, the recently published AMERICAN VAMPIRE ANTHOLOGY featuring stories set in the world of American Vampire, told by some incredible talent including Gabriel Ba and Fabio Moon (DAYTRIPPER), Becky Cloonan (DMZ), Jeff Lemire (TRILLIUM) and Ray Fawkes (CONSTANTINE) and many more.

In the meantime, you can also check out THE WAKE written by Snyder with art by Sean Murphy (AMERICAN VAMPIRE: SURVIVAL OF THE FITTEST) and Albuquerque joins Jeff Lemire with issue #24 of ANIMAL MAN.
