'I, Vampire' #5: Batman vs bloodsuckers

After being resurrected in Sept. 2011 as part of DC Comics' massive "New 52" relaunch, I, Vampire has followed benevolent vampire Andrew Bennett and his attempts to protect the world from his protege/former lover Mary, Queen of the Damned.

The book is equal parts horror and romance, and is about to get batty when Bennett's battle leads him to Gotham City in issues five and six. Comic Book Resources talks to series writer Joshua Hale Fialkov and examines how the bringing Batman to the book, which hits stands tomorrow, "changes the series forever" and discusses "how the Dark Knight will be tested by an army of bloodsuckers."
