stephenkingvampireStephen King will team up with Scott Snyder for a comic book series called American Vampire. King’s story is bound to create some controversy to keepers of the vampire mythology canon.

King’s story provides the origin of the very first American vampire: Skinner Sweet, a bank robbing, murdering cowboy of the 1880s. Skinner is stronger and faster than previous vampires; he has rattlesnake fangs and is powered by…. the sun?

Launch date of the series is on March of 2010.
