Interview: Jess Smart Smiley on Upside Down
Though this book is geared toward younger kids, I have to say that it's nice to see a book on vampires that doesn't take itself very seriously. With all the Twilight books and Vampire Diaries out there, having some fun with the vampire genre as a graphic novel does make things more interesting. The author goes into some detail about the story in this interview, and gives a little background on the origins and inspiration for it. Now, it would be nice to see more of this in teen fiction, especially if it's about a vampire who lost his teeth!
