    American Vampire fans, get pumped. American Vampire #18 is an explosive, status quo-altering entry into this series. Snyder and Albuquerque have once again proven that they know how to deliver a series with bite (sorry, I couldn't resist). Read Full Review

    Ghost War went out with a bang. Seriously, there was a huge explosion in the middle of all that great action and character work. American Vampire has been one of the best titles continuously on the shelves each month and somehow its managed to outdo itself with what is definitely the best story arc yet for this series. As the world of American Vampire lost one character it still becomes a rich and exciting comic book. Read Full Review

    This issue is the last installment for Scott Snyder & Raphael Albuquerque's story arc " Ghost War. Let me spoil you now " Pearl Jones killed Skinner Sweet with a gold knife in a fang fight. Loved the art and story. Great art and words supplements each other in each panel. Dave McGraig did a wonderful job with the coloring. Dynamic characters with a kinda love triangle revealed: the synergy between Pearl and Skinner. Around the end, it seems like a good closing story for the lovely couple Hank & Pearl. I just hope that I'm wrong about it. I truly recommend this book to all of you kind folks. Overall, this series hasn't missed a beat with it's success. And I believe it will never will be.

    This arc of "American Vampire" ends with one hell of a bang that will irrevocably change the future landscape for all characters. For a book full of monsters and bloody battles, it is the emotion that resonates off the page. This isn't spectacle for the sake of a splash page; this is storytelling that puts an event up so it can impact the characters. Each arc holds a story but it adds to the pile of progression we need for change to occur. This issue will be a keystone for some characters going forward. "American Vampire" is building, and if these are just the foundations and lower floors then I look forward greatly to seeing the apex. Read Full Review

    If this is as bad as it gets, you can see why this series has won so many awards. Even though I was disappointed in a few aspects of this issue, typing them up makes me feel really petty and trite. Oh well… Can't wait for next issue. This is still the most consistently good series on the market right now. Read Full Review

    American Vampire is one of the very best series month in and month out. The comic book has a wealth of characters and it presents storylines that cross generations. I'm not sure how this will all play out if one of the main characters dies but we may find that out after this issue. This issue is very good but if you were hoping for a big vampire fight you'll find yourself a little disappointed. Don't be mislead, this is a must read issue and series. Read Full Review
