Le chasseur de vampire Travis Kidd, celui dont on dit qu’il les « mord en retour », se retrouve sur les traces d’un jeune couple de vampire qui sèment la désolation sur les routes de l’Amérique.

Trop occupé par le lancement du New 52, Scott Snyder avait décidé en novembre 2012 de mettre sa série American Vampire en pause avec l’aval de son dessinateur Rafael Albuquerque. Mais impatient de reprendre le travail, ce dernier cumule la casquette de dessinateur et de scénariste pour le lancement du numéro spécial American Vampire: The Long Road To Hell. Sortie en juin 2013.

[quote=« Rafael Albuquerque »]This is my first time writing for Vertigo and it’s a big honor. Once it was decided we would go on hiatus, I approached Mark (our editor) with the idea of doing this special, so the fans could have a ‘taste of blood’ while waiting for the book’s return. He liked the idea and we (Scott Snyder, Mark and I) began talking about it.

I came up with a very rough initial idea, bringing up all the references I thought we should have in the story and then we worked hard on a brand new take on the AV universe — new characters, and the very special participation of fan-favorite Travis Kidd. I’m illustrating this special right now, and I couldn’t be more excited.[/quote]

Fan-favorite character Travis Kidd—the vampire hunter who likes to “bite them back”—makes his return in this new AMERICAN VAMPIRE one-shot!
It’s a story burned deep into the American psyche: two young lovers, a stolen car and the open road. But these young lovers are newly turned vampires trying to fight the bloodsucking urge inside them. To make matters worse, they’ve got a pack of angry vampires on their tails—plus bad-ass vamp-killer Travis Kidd. He’s tracking the “Heartbreak Killers” across the heartland, but can he stop them before it all ends in tragedy? This one-shot special sets the stage for the AMERICAN VAMPIRE relaunch later this year![/quote]
