‘American Vampire’ Anthology To Feature Work From Rucka, Aaron, Cloonan, Moon, Ba & More

AV lede

While Scott Snyder's work on Batman has made him immensely popular among readers, the title that he first made his name on, and possibly the one most important to him, is American Vampire, his creator-owned series for Vertigo. Written by Snyder and illustrated by co-creator Rafael Albuquerque, American Vampire is the tale of Pearl, an aspiring actress turned into an ageless vampire in the 1920s. Through the lens of Pearl and her life, Snyder and Albuquerque explore the rise of America, from the 1920s up to, eventually, the present day.

The Eisner Award-winning series has been on hiatus since issue #34 in January, but to help fill the void for readers, Vertigo is releasing an American Vampire anthology, with nine short stories from an impressive line up of creators: Greg Rucka, Becky Cloonan, Jason Aaron, John Paul Leon, Francesco Francavilla, Gail Simone, Jeff Lemire, Gabriel Bá, Fábio Moon, Declan Shalvey and more. You can check out the full lineup, plus preview art from the issue, below.

In ‘Lazarus’ #1, Greg Rucka And Michael Lark Explore The Absence Of Love [Review]

lazarus header

Sometimes a writer and an artist bring out the best in each other. Greg Rucka would probably tell you how fortunate he's been to work with several especially fantastic artists throughout his career: JH Williams III, Yoshitaka Amano, and Steve Lieber, just to name a few. Likewise, Michael Lark has been paired with some excellent writers like Ed Brubaker and Dean Motter. But Rucka and Lark may be at their best when working together, as they did on the neo-classic Gotham Central, so it was no surprise that last year's announcement of Lazarus, their new series from Image Comics, was met with significant praise from readers, critics, and other creators alike.

Like Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples' Saga, Lazarus was the kind of comic book that seemed destined to be critically lauded even before anyone read it. Image Comics, knowing what it had on its hands, marketed the book at every opportunity, releasing artwork well in advance as well as a short story set in the Lazarus universe. But all the early praise did give me some pause. I love what both creators have accomplished together, but sometimes reality can't live up to the hype, even when everything looks good on paper (so-to-speak). But I can confirm Lazarus #1 is a success. Let's take a look at why.
