    American Vampire has never really been a hard-boiled horror book, instead coming off more like a thriller. That means that when it dials up the horror, it's rarely more effective. We're headed towards a classic ending to a masterpiece of a book here. Read Full Review

    American Vampire 1976 #2 is a fantastic second issue. It takes a step back to make sure all readers are caught up and on the same page while hurtling the story forward balancing its various aspects. While it's the second issue, it feels like the true start to things and is as good a starting point as the first issue. If you were a bit confused by the debut or feel like you were missing something give this second issue a shot and get caught right up. Read Full Review
