In this lost tale of Skinner Sweet, it's 1924 when the first American vampire crosses paths with a Wild West show featuring some old pals and enemies from his outlaw days and he is not happy.

    I buy quite a few comics, and I read quite a few more, but no comic has been as consistently entertaining and surprising over the past year as "American Vampire" has been. Snyder has offered up a dark mythology here that continues to reveal more and more about itself each month. This book truly has become the tale of American vampires, and it is a tale that demands to be shared as it celebrates the history of America, from the Wild West to the Roaring Twenties and beyond. There are plenty of stories yet to be told, and now is a good time to grab a seat and start sharing in these stories alongside those of us here at CBR. Please don't make us say we told you so Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Ryan K Lindsay Feb 26, 2011

    If you haven't tried American Vampire before then this issue would be a good toedipping exercise. It's got the basics of the series, though not everything, and it should win you over. The villain of the piece, or at least the man capable of the most violence though not necessarily the most terrible character, is shown to be a man who can remember, and possibly forgive. Or at least overlook. He's also a man who is getting comfortable with his immortality and is ready to walk away because he understands everything he knows will eventually fade away while his fidelity remains strong. It's a great concept that will surely inform the character as time travels in this title. Read Full Review

    To reiterate, American Vampire #12 is still a comic that you should be buying if you're a long-time reader of the series. The oddly creepy romance story found within is sure to entertain, even if the art isn't up to par with what we expect from of American Vampire. Read Full Review

    Another strong issue that emphasizes that Skinner Sweet and all the vampires are people out of time. Time moves on, but they stay they same. This is such a good series and every comic fan would be well served to squeeze this onto your pull list! Read Full Review
