It is proving to be a huge year for scribe Scott Snyder (My video interview with the author can be found here) and publisher Vertigo Comics as they are gearing up for not only the biggest story-line in of “AMERICAN VAMPIRE” yet beginning in issue #13, but also with an all new original mini-series event this Summer entitled “SURVIVAL OF THE FITTEST”. The series only seems to get better with age, a rare feat nowadays, and inside you can check out a special 2 page preview for both books directly from the publisher and get all the details. Read on for the skinny!
“Part 1 of the AMERICAN VAMPIRE World War II Epic begins here with a tale of heroism – and horror! Hawaii, 1944. For nearly two decades, Henry Preston and his wife, American Vampire Pearl Jones, have tried to live a quiet life. But with war raging overseas, Henry feels he can no longer live in the shadows, and makes a deal to join a covert mission to a remote Japanese island – an island inhabited by an enemy far more dangerous than any Axis powers. It’s the war in the Pacific like you’ve never seen it before with Pearl, Henry and Skinner Sweet at the heart of it all and more fangs and blood than ever before.”

“From the pages of the red-hot Vertigo series comes a five-issue spinoff miniseries! It’s World War II in Nazi-occupied Romania as vampire hunters Felicia Book and Cash McCogan (last seen in the American Vampire story “Devil in the Sand”) go behind enemy lines with the secret organization known as the Vassals of the Morningstar in search of a rumored vampire cure. But their haunted, twisted past with Skinner Sweet makes the mission more difficult than they imagined.”
