American Vampire, Vertigo Comics, Lady Constantine, Stephen King

American Vampire is a cool, hip and new type of Vampire graphic novel by Vertigo which is part of DC Comics. The art is Great and the legendary Stephen King helped write the story so you know it's a quality piece of work. I posted a couple of gruesome panels for your entertainment. Clicking on the art will make it bigger and readable. Bloody Good Stuff!





Here's another sexy Vertigo comic from '03.

Marvel's Greatest Superhero Battles






Two of the great battle comics reprinted in the book. FF #25 and SS #4.




M. G. S. Battles is a super cool full color hardcover graphic novel from 1978. What's really cool is it's actually in an orange hardcover format. The original cover is a glossy thin print which I scanned for this blog. I believe this is one of the first graphic novels that was produced in hardcover book format.

Cover Art by John Romita.
