    The series as a whole has been fantastic. This storyline has been no exception, often providing both Snyder and Albuquerque ample opportunity to show off their many talents. As this story moves towards its conclusion, I imagine that things are only going to get better. I'm sure you've heard it before, but I'll tell you again you should be reading American Vampire. This book won the Eisner for Best New Series for a reason. Read Full Review

    While most of the issue is comprised of characters yelling "Move!" and "Through Here!" types of commands, Scott Snyder does manage to hit us with some touching bits at the issue's conclusion that once again remind us that American Vampire is a story about characters at its core, it's not just gratuitous monster slaying. While it's true that American Vampire #17 flies by in an instant, it's also hard to hold that against Scott Snyder and Rafael Albuquerque. They have crafted another comic that makes you anxious to find out what happens next. If anything, that's just good storytelling worth sacrificing some spooning action over. Read Full Review

    "American Vampire" is a continually solid and strong comic, but that doesn't mean it's ever predictable. It is, as always, a joy to read, with just enough storytelling tweaks and surprises to keep you on your toes. It's no small wonder that "American Vampire" just won an Eisner award, because it's well deserved. Good stuff. Read Full Review
