If you have read any of our Scott Snyder / DC articles you know that we worship the ground this breakthrough writer walks on. (At some point we may even get a Scott Snyder influenced tattoo but that is up for debate.) It seems as if everything he touches raises the bar and leaves fans wanting more…and more…and more. His upcoming run on Superman Unchained with artist Jim Lee and Batman: Zero Year with artist Greg Capullo are two of the most highly anticipated comics of the summer and don’t even get me started on how phenomenal his work on Batman or Swamp Thing is.
With the launch of AMERICAN VAMPIRE written and created by Scott Snyder and co-written by none other than horror legend, Stephen King, VOLUME 1 quickly became a New York Times bestseller. Snyder has reinvigorated vampire lore, not only by making vampires scary again, but by having his main character Skinner Sweet, become the first American vampire born of the American West. Through the lens of this eternal character, he explores what is both horrific and wondrous throughout the history of the United States.
AMERICAN VAMPIRE, VOL. 5 follows Skinner Sweet, Pearl and company as they return to Hollywood in the ‘50s during the Red Scare. Elsewhere, retired vampire hunter Felicia Book gets called back into action to kill the most powerful vampire of all time. Brought to you by critically acclaimed writer Scott Snyder (BATMAN and SWAMP THING), this hardcover volume collects issues #28-34 of the monthly series illustrated by Rafael Albuquerque (BLUE BEETLE), and the 5-issue miniseries AMERICAN VAMPIRE: LORD OF NIGHTMARES, drawn by Dustin Nguyen (DETECTIVE COMICS and BATMAN: LI’L GOTHAM).
