American Vampire flashes back to two very distinct points in American
history. The first tale comes from the early 1800's with the "The Beast in the
Cave" featuring art by the legendary Jordi Bernet (Torpedo, Jonah
Hex). Learn about the original American Vampire, Skinner Sweet, and his
involvement in the brutal Indian Wars, and an ancient evil hidden in the heart
of the Old West. Plus, more about the man Skinner used to call his best friend
- James Book! The second tale comes straight from 1950s America, where
American Vampire is terrorizing the suburbs with hot rods, teenyboppers, and
fangs! Writer Scott Snyder (Batman, Swamp Thing) and artist
Rafael Albuquerque bring together even more threads to the complex tapestry that
is the world of American Vampire.
