“Hot on the heels of last summer’s award winning mini-series AMERICAN VAMPIRE: Survival of the Fittest with art by Sean Murphy (now collected in AMERICAN VAMPIRE Vol. 3), Vertigo will publish AMERICAN VAMPIRE: Lord of Nightmares a new 5 issue miniseries written by AMERICAN VAMPIRE creator Scott Snyder, with art by Dustin Nguyen (Batman: Streets of Gotham, Detective Comics, Superman/Batman).

This June, New York Times bestselling author, Scott Snyder returns to postwar Europe and the vampire hunting agency known as The Vassals of the Morning Star. At the core of the story is agent Felicia Book. Felicia has had a dark life, filled with tragedy, but she has finally found peace, raising her adoptive son Gus in Paris. But when Agent Hobbes of The Vassals return to request her help tracking the most powerful vampire of all time, she soon learns nothing can prepare her for the threat inside The Coffin…

“These miniseries are the place where we get to reveal the biggest secrets about the mythology, history, and the evolution of our vampires. I’m excited to return to some of my favorite characters, Felicia, Gus, Hobbes, all of whom have lived their lives fighting a war against vampires who live in the shadows,” said Snyder. “It’s a world where we get to tell their stories in a way where we explore their dreams and their demons and pit them against the biggest scariest vampires you’ll ever see in series with tons of blockbuster action.”
