“We were supposed to rule the world, Andrew, not hide in the shadows like vermin.” That line from the first issue of DC’s “I, Vampire” speaks to the most popular conflict inside the crowded coffin that is contemporary vampire fiction.
Are vampires destined to be the loner predators at the edge of the human herd? Or should they be emperors sipping arterial wine from golden chalices?
It’s a conflict that powers plenty of bloodsucker mythology and now it will be added to the costumed-hero universe of DC with the release of “I, Vampire.” The series from writer Joshua Fialkov and artist Andrea Sorrentino is part of the horror infusion that has arrived in the DC Universe with The New 52 initiative. We have an exclusive preview of “I, Vampire” above.
