Nancy Drew The New Case Files #1: Nancy Drew Vampire Slayer by Stefan Petrucha, Sarah Kinney, and Sho Murase
Nope, I didnât make this one up. There is really a Nancy Drew vampire comic on the way. Anyway, Vampire-mania has taken over River Heights, with teenage girls going wild over the new “DieLite” novels and movies. But what happens when a supposedly “real” gorgeous young vampire arrives on the scene? Will Nancy expose him as a fraud or will she fall under his dark spell? As if that wasn’t enough, there is something dark and sinister happening while everyone’s distracted by the vampire craze. Could this possibly be linked to what’s happening in Bayport, home of the Hardy Boys?
Haha, I like the little Twilight dig there. Coming out: September 14, 2010
American Vampire Vol. 1 by Scott Snyder, Stephen King, and Rafael Albuquereque
One of the big vampire released this year follows two stories: one written by Snyder and one written by King.

Which one are you most excited about?
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).
