Rafael Grampa's Variant Cover for American Vampire #6 is Horrifically Beautiful

AMERICAN VAMPIRE is a fantastic book. Each issue just blows me away. Scott Snyder's writing is top-notch and the plot lines have been captivating. The art by Rafael Albuquerque paints a world that is immerses and mesmerizes reader. It's simply beautiful. 

This month AMERICAN VAMPIRE fans get special treat.  The variant cover issue #6 Rafael Grampa is eerily twisted but extremely beautiful.  Gramps states on the Vertigo Blog, "I tried to make a “horror film” poster, but very pop! It is based on some dirty and rough grindhouse movies posters + punk rock cover albums. I loved to do it! We, comic book artists, need to hold the same style for a whole project, so it was an incredible chance to experiment something different. Thanks everybody and hope you like it."
