DC Embraces the Darkness Bringing Classic Horror Back to Comics
A while back DC Comics announced that it will relaunch the majority of its publishing line with a wave of new #1 issues. To be exact, they will be launching 52 new #1 issues within one month, all with new writers and artists. It’s a huge deal and is causing heads to spin in the comic world with new info coming in every day. But what does all of this comic-goodness have to do with us vampire fans? Well, DC Comics is relaunching some beloved horror classics, including I, Vampire.
“Vampires threaten to bring ruin to the DC Universe in I, VAMPIRE #1 by rising star Josh Fialkov and artist Andrea Sorrentino. Tortured by his centuries-old love for the Queen of the Damnned, Andrew Bennett must save humanity from the violent uprising of his fellow vampires, even if it means exterminating his own kind.”
Check out the new I, Vampire artwork below. Love!
Originally, I…Vampire was a 24 issue series that was created by writer J.M. DeMatteis and appeared in House of Mystery between 1981 and 1983. It had started as a backup story in House of Mystery but it quickly became so popular that it eventually overtook the title on the cover. So, it has been a LONG time since we have heard anything on this old comic, but with the relaunch, we’ll be getting a brand new version with absolutely stunning artwork. Woot!
I don’t about you, but as a huge lover of comics I am beyond geeked for this! I can’t wait for the release of I, Vampire! Unfortunately, there’s no word yet on when exactly it will be released.

Moonlight (aka Amanda) loves to write about, read about and learn about everything pertaining to vampires. You will most likely find her huddled over a book of vampire folklore with coffee in hand. Touch her coffee and she may bite you (and not in the fun way).
