Scott Snyder and Rafael Albuquerque's award-winning series continues! Welcome to the '60s. It's a turbulent time to be an American-especially an American Vampire. While the rest of the nation uneasily watches the spread of communism across the world stage, the three surviving Abominus Americana-Pearl Jones, Skinner Sweet and Calvin Poole-are fighting a battle much closer to home. An evil right underneath their feet. The Gray Trader, the nearest thing to the devil this world has ever seen, is summoning an ancient beast from the depths of the earth. The original and oldest evil, this abomination would devour the world if freed. To prevent it, the American Vampires will have to fight the Gray Trader on two fronts, with one team targeting a top-secret government stronghold known as Area 51 and the other heading up-way up-into the final frontier! But can such an ambitious plan succeed when one of their own has already been compromised by the Beast? Collects AMERICAN VAMPIRE: SECOND CYCLE #6-11
Writer Scott Snyder (BATMAN, SWAMP THING) and artist Rafael Albuquerque bring together even more threads to the complex tapestry that is the world of AMERICAN VAMPIRE. When we last saw Pearl in the 1950s, she had lost her love Henry in an attack on the vampire hunting organization, V.M.S., by a coven of Hollywood vampires that nearly wiped the organization off the face of the planet. Devastated and alone, Pearl is determained to leave California and all its painful memories behind. When we meet Pearl again, it is in 1960s Kansas, an era fraught with fear of nuclear war, angry demonstrations, and vast social change. What has changed in the years since the V.M.S. attack and where is Skinner Sweet? Collects AMERICAN VAMPIRE CYCLE TWO #1-5.
This volume of the critically-acclaimed AMERICAN VAMPIRE follows the star of AV Volumes 1 and 2, Pearl, and her husband Henry, as he is recruited by a mysterious group of vampire hunters, off to World War II Japan to find a new breed of blood sucker. But what does the notorious vampire Skinner Sweet have to do with it?
This volume follows two stories: one written by Scott Snyder and one written by legendary horror writer Stephen King. In Snyder's story set in 1920s LA, we follow Pearl, a young woman who is turned into a vampire and sets out on a path of righteous revenge against the European vampires who tortured and abused her. This story is paired with King's story, a western about Skinner Sweet, the original American Vampire-a stronger, faster creature than any vampire ever seen before.
In the first story, series mainstays Skinner Sweet, Pearl and company return to Hollywood in the '50s during the Red Scare. In a-time where America was on the lookout for the next Communist threat, was the real danger something far more insidious? A-major turning point in AMERICAN VAMPIRE lore begins here! In the second tale, familiar face and vampire hunter Felicia Book is "retired" from vampire hunting when she gets called back-into action to track down and kill the most powerful vampire of all time. The hunt takes our heroes through post-war Europe,-behind the Iron Curtain and into the heart of Russia to track this deadly enemy...

The #1 New York Times bestseller American Vampire is a fresh take on a gothic classic by writer Scott Snyder--with stories from the legendary horror master Stephen King--and is now collected in a hardcover edition in American Vampire Omnibus Vol. 1. Chronicling the history of a new breed of vampire, American Vampire is a fresh look at an old monster, a generational epic showcasing the bloodlust that lay hidden beneath America's most distinctive eras. Like most good stories, it all starts with a question: What if vampires, like all species, evolved? What if, occasionally across generations, a vampire bites someone and creates a new kind of creature--a vampire that takes its strengths and weaknesses--not just from its predecessors, but its environment. So when crusty old Europeans come to the American Old West and turn a thoroughly corrupt gunslinger named Skinner Sweet into even more of a monster, he becomes something entirely new: a new breed of vampire immune to sunlight, one who hates every last one of his aristocratic European ancestors. Follow this dark symbol of the New World as he moves through American history's most distinctive eras--the 1880s Old West, 1930s Las Vegas, World War II and more. But as Skinner's war with his predecessors inspires a mysterious society to rise and fight them both, his most upsetting decision might be the first person he chooses to join his vampiric ranks: A struggling young movie star named Pearl Jones.
