"This isn't something that's open ended, where we're sort of taking a break and don't know when we're going to come back," he told Newsarama.

"We're absolutely coming back within a year of #34. I can't give you a month specifically, because Vertigo is deciding now what the best month would be to place our return issue. But it has nothing to do with any sense of indecision on our part, internally, as a team, as to when we're going to come back and how long we're going to take off."

This week sees the release of American Vampire #33, which concludes the current 'Blacklist' storyline. Issue #34 will set up the future storylines and mark the end of the first half of the series.

"American Vampire #34, is actually one of my favourite ones that we've done," said Snyder. "It catches up with one character we haven't seen in a really, really long time, and it also presents a character who's part of a storied lineage in the series.

"The interaction between them, without giving too much away, will offer clues about every storyline we're going to do in the second half of American Vampire. There are even clues about the finale of the entire series."

Snyder said that he was taking the time to get "way ahead" on Batman, his forthcoming Superman project and his new Vertigo title The Wake.

He claimed that a break of some sort had always been planned to mark the American Vampire midpoint.

American Vampire #34 will debut on January 2.
