It’s Al Capone, he’s back, he’s a vampire, and he’s decided to take over Chicago, again. This is one of those rare times when the title almost does really tell you everything you need to know… Only there’s way more, we promise! The original Scarface is back in a big way and the gangs of Chicago – and the other vampires – better look out!
When you hear the name Al Capone, you might think of the notorious gangster who once ruled the streets of Chicago. But what if I told you there’s more to the story? Get ready to sink your teeth into “Al Capone: Vampire #1,” a comic that takes an iconic figure and gives him a supernatural twist.
At first glance, you might think, “Al Capone: Vampire? Really?” But trust me, it’s cooler than you could ever imagine. I, like many, grew up with stories of Al Capone, especially considering I lived in Miami and often passed by his old mansion. The legends and tales of the man were almost as legendary as the man himself. So when you mix Al Capone with vampirism, it’s a recipe for a thrilling, otherworldly narrative.
In this comic, Al Capone is back, but he’s not back in the way you’d expect. He’s returned as a vampire, and he’s got his sights set on reclaiming Chicago, just like in the old days. This time, though, he’s bringing an insatiable hunger for blood and a lust for power that’s truly out of this world.
The title might make you think you’ve got it all figured out, but let me assure you, there’s so much more to this story than meets the eye. It’s a perfect blend of historical fiction, supernatural intrigue, and good old-fashioned comic book storytelling.
Jeffrey Vaughn, the long-time President of Gemstone Publishing, AKA J. C. Vaughn, knows how to spin a yarn, and with art by Brendon Fraim and Brian Fraim, it’s a visual feast for the eyes. The cover art by Howard Chaykin and Yen Nitro sets the tone perfectly and lures you into the dark and mysterious world of Al Capone the vampire.
This comic is a delightful twist on history, a captivating reimagining of a notorious figure, and a blood-soaked adventure that will leave you thirsting for more. So, if you’re ready to witness the return of the original Scarface in a way you’ve never seen before, grab “Al Capone: Vampire #1” and prepare for a Chicago you never knew existed. The gangs of the past and the vampires of the night better watch out – Capone is back, and he’s out for blood!
