New Arc of American Vampire Coming To DC Black Label in 2020
Lost in the din of movie and entertainment news, Scott Snyder confirmed at SDCC that we’ll be getting a brand new arc of he and Rafael Albuquerque’s American Vampire at some point next year!
As part of the “Spotlight on Scott Snyder” panel on Sunday, Snyder spoke about the return of the series, which is set to be released under DC’s new “Black Label” adult age group.
He said, “We were originally going to do it this year, and started on it last fall. But next year will be the 10th anniversary of American Vampire, and DC felt it would be better to do an entire arc then.”
He continued, adding “The story will take place in 1976. There’s this ominous, Nixonian kind of feel to it. It’s not the finale to the series, but it does take us to present day.
More details as they become available, but to say we’re excited about this news would be a gross understatement.

I laughed so hard. What the heck does “ominous, Nixonian feel” mean anyway? That’s nothing but some mumbo-jumbo, imbecilic description that really has no meaning at all, just an implied validation of the author’s (Snyder) warped world view that he thinks is so cool. People are so dumb these days, and will fall for any scheme or idea, so long as it doesn’t require the use of their own brains. American Vampire was good for the 1st six issues. After that, it became just an overplayed idea, but isn’t that true of all Snyder’s work?
Great news, always look forward to more American Vampire!
