Last week we reported that DC was making full on creator changes to their Green Lantern lineup. While some of you speculated as to who you wanted behind Hal and the gang, it seems like I got my wish as Joshua Hale Fialkov (“I, Vampire) will be writing “Green Lantern Corps” and “Red Lanterns”.

I, Vampire is another one of those DC Dark titles that took everyone by surprise at the launch of the New 52. It’s a risky superhero horror mashup about immortal vampire ex-lovers at war. In the hands of writer Joshua Hale Fialkov and artist Andrea Sorrentino, “I, Vampire” began as an under the radar critical success, and has since become a New York Times Bestseller.
In the latest arc of “I, Vampire”, which begins tomorrow in issue #13 (preview here), Fialkov flips the role of protagonist and antagonist. Andrew Bennett becomes the villain, and his ex-lover Mary becomes the hero. BD spoke with Fialkov about taking risks in writing, how to keep vampires interesting in modern comics, his experience with the New 52, and plenty more. READ MORE
The re-launch of the DC Universe made headlines everywhere. One of the most surprising and talked about elements of the DC New 52 was the revival of older titles with a darker edge, which included Animal Man, Resurrection Man and the upcoming I Vampire. The choice to make these series a part of the re-launch may have appeared odd at first glance, but now that the books are finally in the greedy little hands of fans, the dark side of the new DC Comics has given fans some of the best new titles the publisher has launched in years.
Top Cow has teamed up with Joshua Hale Fialkov, and Rahsan Ekedal to present “ECHOES”. This sharply written story takes you inside the head of Brian Cohn, a man dealing with Schizophrenia among a multitude of other issues. The third installment of this five issue series is scheduled to hit shelves on the 23rd of this month.
