Some of the most fun I’ve had doing this blog is seeing the process behind a lot of my favorite books.

It’s not a stretch to say one of the most recent success stories to come out of Vertigo is AMERICAN VAMPIRE, a neo-horror classic-in-the-making that has garnered critical and commercial acclaim with it’s modern and exciting take on vampires in America.
