Stephen King ventures into the world of comics with the launch of a new series called American Vampire, a new series co-authored with Scott Snyder and illustrated by Rafael Albuquerque. King will co-write the first five issues of the series, which is described thusly:

When notorious outlaw Skinner Sweet is attacked by an old enemy (who happens to be a member of the undead), the first American vampire is born… a vampire powered by the sun, stronger, fiercer, and meaner than anything that came before.

Plus… Pearl Jones is a struggling young actress in 1920′s Los Angeles.

But when her big break brings her face-to-face with an ancient evil, her Hollywood dream quickly turns into a brutal, shocking nightmare.

This is the beginning of an epic new series, spanning decades and generations, and it all begins here.

The website includes a 40 second video (shown here) and other extras like a preview of the first issue.
