    Last year, Snyder debuted "American Vampire: Survival of the Fittest," which expanded the reach of the Vassals and added diversity to the throngs of creatures going bump in the night. "Lord of Nightmares" adds even more depth and history to the Vassals of the Morning Star, revealing more hints of the true secrets behind the organization. The "American Vampire" franchise is a splendid example of growing a brand organically and the blossoming tradition of a summer Vassals miniseries is a wonderful example of how to nourish that growth while exploring new territory.

    Its understandable in some respects, I suppose. Publishers these days encourage writing for the trade, and both creators of this book have several other projects going. Scott Snyder himself has the ongoing titles ” Batman,” “American Vampire” and “Swamp Thing”, and that is just what we know of right now, so it is understandable that quality might suffer or fluctuate from title to title. Issue #3 here was bought on the strengths of the previous two issues, and the next two will be purchased as well – if only because it would feel ridiculous to read only half of a five issue mini-series. They just better deliver a strong and unique ending. Read Full Review
