From CBR:
Snyder Draws More Blood in "American Vampire"
Jeffrey Renaud wrote:Scott Snyder professes to have happy thoughts -- and of course, he does, as any man with a beautiful bride and two wonderful young boys would -- but he's still creepy. How else do you explain his admission that he would gladly take the fangs of Skinner Sweet to his neck if it meant he could live on forever as one of his own creations, an American vampire.

The Eisner Award-winning writer may actually warrant more lifetime than the rest of us if he continues to push out critically acclaimed scripts like the ones he's developed for DC Comics over the past few years, most recently on "Batman," "Swamp Thing" and Vertigo's "American Vampire."

CBR News spoke extensively with Snyder after he returned home from C2E2 to discuss his work. In today's installment of our two-part interview the writer shared his thoughts on "American Vampire," the series he co-created with artist Rafael Albuquerque.

Snyder teased what's ahead in the coming months, what would happen to one of the series' main characters if he was bitten and the possibility of the master of horror, Stephen King, returning to the title to write another story.

SCOTT SNYDER Explains AMERICAN VAMPIRE Hiatus
Vaneta Rogers wrote: In 2010, novelist Scott Snyder burst onto the comic scene with the most successful Vertigo comic in years — American Vampire.

But in 2013, the comic's story reaches its halfway point, and the hit series will take a break before ramping up the action next year.

This week, American Vampire #33 will finish up the shocking events of the series' latest storyline, "The Blacklist." Then on January 2, issue #34 will serve as both an epilogue to "Blacklist" and a precursor for things to come.

Featuring the work of Brazilian artist Rafael Albuquerque, the successful Vertigo series has been exploring the concept that, in the "AmVamp" universe, vampires can evolve into new species. For example, the older vampires from Europe must stay out of the sun, but descendants of American vampire Skinner Sweet thrive in the sunlight and have powers that are distinctly American.

For the first few issues, Snyder got an "assist" on American Vampire from author Stephen King, who was among the admirers of Snyder's prose work. But even after King left, American Vampire continued its strong sales and even launched spin-off mini-series. And soon after AmVamp's launch, Snyder was recruited to work on several other comics for DC, including Batman, Detective Comics and an upcoming Superman comic with superstar artist Jim Lee.

Now that the Vertigo series has reached its halfway point, Newsarama talked to Snyder. What follows is a spoiler-free interview where Snyder explains the upcoming "break" he and Albuquerque are taking, as well as what's coming up for AmVamp fans.

Daytripper Deluxe Edition HC - the cover

Gabriel Bá wrote:We couldn't be happier with Daytripper. It became everything we believe comics can be and it has been reaching people all over the world. We really enjoyed its run as a mini-series, but the collected edition is the one really going the distance. We love this book.

It took us long nine months to get the first cover of Daytripper right, making a lot of sketches, having to lots of different approaches, but in the end we couldn't have done a better job. The cover for the first issue had to portray a little of the whole series as it could be used as the cover for the trade. Well, it did happen and it has become the "face" of the book all over the world.

Except for the American edition, in every country it has been published, it got a harcover treatment. The same book, nothing different inside. Well, if we would have the american hardcover edition, it should be special, since this is such a special book.

And it will be.

It was very hard coming up with a new cover for the new edition, because I really love the old one. So the new one had to be special, to tell more than the first one, to embody the whole story. Four years have passed since I've done the first cover and this book became something larger, so the cover would have to step up too.

With the release date of April 2014, the Daytripper Deluxe Edition HC will have a dust-jacket wraparound cover, three piece case, better stock matte paper and 16 extra pages sketchbook section. Go to your local comic store and make sure you order it.

OLIVER MAKES WEIRD SCIENCE IN "FBP: FEDERAL BUREAU OF PHYSICS"
JEFFREY RENAUD wrote:It's been nearly a decade since Simon Oliver launched "The Exterminators" for Vertigo Comics. And like the insect-infected world featured in his debut hit, illustrated and co-created by Tony Moore of "The Walking Dead" fame, the one he's building with artist Robbi Rodriquez in "FBP: Federal Bureau of Physics" is heading towards a mass extermination. Except in his latest creator-owned series for Vertigo, a far more powerful menace lurks in the shadows -- and that menace is physics.

"FBP" follows a team of investigators working for the Federal Bureau of Physics as the physical world begins to unravel thanks to quantum tornadoes, bubbleverses and a new brand of science that would have left the Beastie Boys needing to expand their horizons and parameters far beyond what they previously believed possible.

In seven issues to date, Oliver and Rodriguez have delivered a mystery literally spiraling out of control and one that is based, at least in part, on real science. Not bad for a kid that used to get reports card stating: "He does okay but he could do better."

With the series going on a one-month hiatus to coincide with the release of its first collected edition on February 19, CBR News connected with Oliver to discuss the real-life scenario that appears to mirror the events of "FBP," why knowing what wormholes and time dilation is may make the series even more enjoyable and how long the writer believes the series will run.

Film School Rejects:
If Neil Gaiman Really is Developing a Vertigo Universe… What Comics Should He Choose?
Neil Gaiman wrote:“It’s not a DC Comics film. It’s a Vertigo film. That’s a different slate of films, and a different announcement.”



‘Global Frequency’ Drama Produced By Jerry Bruckheimer Set At Fox With Big Commitment
Nellie Andreeva wrote:Another top Warner Bros. TV producer, Jerry Bruckheimer, is taking on a DC Entertainment property for a high-profile drama project that has landed a pilot production commitment at Fox. Global Frequency is based on the graphic novel created by Warren Ellis, from DC Entertainment’s Vertigo imprint. The adaptation will be penned by respected sci-fi writer, Farscape and Defiance creator Rockne S. O’Bannon. The show will chronicle the workings of The Global Frequency, a privately funded crime-fighting operation that uses worldwide crowd-sourcing to solve crimes the police cannot. Bruckheimer, Jonathan Littman, Warren Ellis and O’Bannon will executive produce and KristieAnne Reed will co-executive produce for Jerry Bruckheimer TV and Warner Bros. TV.

Global Frequency is part of the expansion of WBTV-DC Entertainment’s TV portfolio that started last year, following the success of Arrow on the CW. There were four WBTV-DC pilots last season, all four went to series. Two of the three that have debuted, Fox’s Gotham and the CW’s The Flash, are among the biggest hits of the fall and have already received full-season orders. There hasn’t been a decision yet on Constantine, on which O’Bannon is writing, and iZombie debuts in midseason.

This development season, Global Frequency is joining WBTV’s Supergirl,which has a series commitment at CBS, and Lucifer, also based on a Vertigo property, which has a put pilot commitment at Fox.
