This June, readers will be treated to two different American Vampire series, the regular and a miniseries. Why two series? Why not? Today, Vertigo has unveiled the covers to June's issues along with some information on the issues.
In American Vampire #16 by Scott Snyder and Rafael Albuquerque, the "Ghost War" rages on in the Pacific. Things don't look good for the heroes when something terrible crawls out of the caves of Taipan. Meanwhile, the U.S. military plans for the island reach a boiling point and Henry's unit is caught in the middle. If the continuation of this story wasn't enough, the truth about Skinner Sweet's past is revealed!
What's the miniseries about?
== TEASER ==
American Vampire: Survival of the Fittest is a five-part miniseries written by Scott Snyder, with art by hot artist, Sean Murphy (Joe the Barbarian). The series is set to expand the mythology with a story and history that changes things forever.
The nice thing about American Vampire, you can pretty easily jump into it at the beginning of each arc. It obviously helps to have read the past issues and you really owe it to yourself to check them out (the first trade is out and the second volume is due in May).
It’s WWII in Nazi-occupied Romania as vampire hunters Felicia Book and Cash McCogan 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.
One of the things I've been enjoying about the series is how time progresses. We seeing the story of Skinner and others as they go forward in their timeline. I wonder if we'll eventually see the series reach modern times and even beyond?
