AMERICAN VAMPIRE – STEPHEN KING
Yesterday, The Daily Beast put up an exclusive interview with Stephen King regarding the making of his first comic book, American Vampire.

What do you think about Stephen King’s American Vampire? I must admit I have a bit of a soft spot (hee *giggles*) for ‘traditional’ Vampires. I also like Mr King’s assessment on ‘sexiness’ of vampires (and hee to his thought bubbles comment). What do you think?
