    I don't think it's hyperbole to label this issue of American Vampire the best we've seen yet. And that's saying a lot, considering this series has been one of our absolute favorites month in and month out. But Scott Snyder and Rafael Albuquerque have once again raised the bar for themselves. The saga of the first American Vampire and the lives he's affected continues to pick up speed like a freight train. And there's no sign of it coming off the rails any time soon. Next month can't get here soon enough. Read Full Review

    Thirteen may normally be an unlucky number, but that's not the case here. This is a strong start to both a new storyline and its second year in general, even as it provides a strong introduction for any new readers interested. "American Vampire" sucks you dry every month, and then has you coming back for more. Read Full Review
