Today at the New York Comic Con, during the Vertigo Panel, writer Scott Snyder revealed that American Vampire will be going on a brief hiatus after the release of issue #34. Snyder explained that the hiatus will be just under a year, with the title returning in late 2013 to begin telling the next major chapter of their story.
The reasons behind the hiatus aren’t as dire as it seems. Snyder explained that he and artist Rafael Albuquerque would continue to work together, just not on American Vampire. Snyder hinted that they’re going to be taking the time to work on some yet to be named DC Universe characters. The good news is that this great creative team will be sticking together and continuing their collaboration. Then, in 2013, they can sink their teeth into the next chapter of our favorite vampire saga.
