My favorite part of The Vampire Lestat is that he was angry Louis wrote a book that made him look over dramatic so he wrote his own book where he comes off ten times more over dramatic than Louis ever did
God, where did you find the "Vampire Companion" book ? I have three comics, but not this :/ may I ask the reference of it, I absolutely need to find it !
I got my copy at Powell’s City of Books in Portland, Oregon, and I deeply regret not ALSO buying a slim hardcover VC book there that profiled VC fans and was published in the 90′s! Argh. I don’t even remember what it was called. I didn’t imagine it though!! It was REAL. I should beg a certain Portlandian to go for me and see if it’s still there… *cough* you know who you are *cough*
HOWEVER, I see the Vampire Companion on Amazon often, I bet it’s on eBay… and it’s in library book sales, but not as often. I think this is a recently printed edition w/ a new cover but not updated info:
Not to be confused with these “vampire companion” books, which hey, might be good on their own! They’re just not VC.
How can people link Vampires™ to Twilight when Anne Rice literally created the vampire version of the kardashians before the kardashians even existed.
Like we have the ambiguous 17 yrs old lookin who’s in love with an alcholist with purple eyes, two gay drama queens in love (but that constantly try to kill each other) who adopt a little girl out of nowhere and other vague family members that we’re going to name The Straights™ who don’t really like the youngest and gayest of the gang. Also let’s not forget that everyone hates Drama Queen #1 Lestat but they all listen to his music and even buy his book.
“Her blood coursed through my veins, sweeter than life itself. And as it did, Lestat’s words made sense to me. I knew peace only when I killed and when I heard her heart in that terrible rhythm, I knew again what peace could be.”

I love the difference in tone between the first two VC books tho cause it literally goes from Louis being like “And that is my sad tale or woe, please listen to it and know that so much bad stuff can happen if you become a vampire” to Lestat bustin through like“IT’S LESTAT TIME MOTHERFUCKERS!!!!”
