    Another outstanding issue of American Vampire. The creators are really starting to establish their own grading system because I'm really not comparing them to other comics anymore…..just to the excellence of last issue of AV. Buy it, read it… Read Full Review

    To say the least, it might only be a month, but the wait between now and then is going to be brutal. This series continues to be a grade-A comic. Read Full Review

    I cannot recommend American Vampire enough to you all. Each issue is packed with great storytelling, great character work and amazing artwork every time. It defeats the wait for the trade mentality that so many other comics have by making sure each issue is packed to the brim with enough great writing and art to make sure that your $2.99 is always well spent and leaving you satisfied and excited for more next month.

    Comic Book Resources - Ryan K. Lindsay Jun 29, 2011

    It's a book people started to think they could pigeon hole, but with this issue it's becoming abundantly clear this book isn't just stranger than we know. It's possibly stranger than we can know. "American Vampire" is becoming an epic story, yet it still keeps the many parts easily compartmentalized so readers can't get confused. This is a masterpiece of how to use multiple times, characters, settings, and genres. If nothing else, based on the end of this issue you must be here next month to see what goes down. It's going to get nasty. Beautifully nasty. Read Full Review

    Are you reading American Vampire? If so, you know or will know that this will be a great issue. If you're not reading it, you should be shunned first of all. Then you should pick up the trades and check it out. Vampire adventures that are not your typical overdone stories. Scott Snyder's storytelling is meshed beautifully with Rafael Albuquerque's gorgeous art and Dave McCaig's brilliant colors. It's a great arc and it's going to get even crazier next issue.
