Win a Copy of AMERICAN VAMPIRE Vol. 1!

By DCE Editorial Monday, November 1st, 2010
That’s right, win a copy of the NEW YORK TIMES Bestseller AMERICAN VAMPIRE Volume 1 by Scott Snyder, Stephen King and artist Rafael Albuquerque. All you have to do is spot the “Easter Eggs...” The first volume of AMERICAN VAMPIRE is a dual narrative, one that takes place in the Old West in the 1880’s and one that takes place in Hollywood in the 1920’s, but BOTH stories contain references to the other. Can you spot them? In each chapter (issues 1-5) there is at least one reference (a location, name or object) that is crucial to the other story. Snyder, King and Albuquerque cleverly hid these little tidbits to enhance the story for keen-eyed fans on multiple readings. In order to win, please name/describe one of the Easter Eggs and post in the comment section of this post. You have 1 week to post, you may only post once, and 10 winners will be chosen at random from all entries in which an Easter Egg is correctly identified. Please see Official Rules below. Good Luck!
