    "American Vampire: Lord of Nightmares" #2 is amazing on a visceral level. This is a comic that wants you to do more than enjoy it; it wants you to feel an experience. Once again, Snyder parcels together an issue you can read and take away in a neat package that stands alone but adds to the overall "American Vampire" mythos. Snyder's Dracula is intriguing and will definitely affect the overall title in a big way. Also, the opportunity for a Dracula versus Skinner Sweet showdown is just too much to hope for. However, it's Nguyen who's the key to propelling this issue over the edge. This is an issue that sticks in your mind and propels you to the stands for what comes next. Read Full Review

    In a very tight race, thismightbe pick of the week. I'll have to review my notes because there are so many good comics this week. What sets this issue apart are (a) Snyder's deft handling of "Dracula" and his powers and (b) Nguyen's diverse and excellent art. Read Full Review

    The issue wraps up with a little Cold War intrigue and much spooky foreshadowing. Cap it all off with a cliffhanger ending, and already you are wishing it was this time next month. If the next three issue can hold up to the standard the first two have set, “American Vampire: Lord of Nightmares” could be in the running for one of the best mini-series of 2012. Read Full Review

    This could have been a perfect one shot or annual. Self contained story which not only builds on the separate series but the overall American Vampire mythos. Sounds like the description of a near perfect comic, and it is. Having just read this issue for the first time, it proved Snyder can execute an entire issue of exposition perfectly,which makes me even more depressed about the last issue of The Wake.
