    Did you know that Scott Snyder is a great writer? And that Dustin Nguyen is an amazing artist? Your answer to both questions, was probably "yes", but just in case you'd forgotten, the two do an excellent job reminding you with their work on the final issue of their American Vampire mini-series Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Oct 22, 2012

    Similar to the bittersweet ending of last year's "American Vampire: Survival of the Fittest," this issue closes one door and opens another, perpetuating Snyder's wonderfully excited universe all the more. Despite their similarities and shared cast, Snyder avoids falling into a pattern with the adventures of the Vassals, providing "Lord of Nightmares" with some shocking surprises. Given that we had a miniseries starring the Vassals of the Morning Star last year and this year, I'm hoping we see more adventures of the clandestine organization next year. Until then, I am excited to see how the new direction for the VSM affects the primary narrative of "American Vampire." Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - lucstclair Oct 17, 2012

    This mini series was just as terrific as the monthly American Vampire series, which brings up the question why didn’t Snyder just insert this story arc into the monthly AV title? Regardless, I had a real blast reading this series, it had plenty of action & gore and some room for new characters & the development of the regular characters as well. This issue gets a rating of 9 and so does the entire mini series. Read Full Review
