    "American Vampire" is consistently strong, month after month, so it's with that already in mind that I say that this is probably my favorite issue to date. There's something about that retelling of the Lewis and Clark expedition into "American Vampire" lore that makes it extra entrancing. Whatever that is, I'm not complaining. You don't get much better than this. Read Full Review

    American Vampire never has a down issue. Sure, some issues throw me for a loop that I was not expecting and not always in a good way, but this issue is right on the money. Though it contains little action it sets up a tremendous hook for the final issue in the arc. I can't recommend a book or series more than this one. Read Full Review

    Overall, American Vampire #20 is another solid purchase. But by this point, that's too be expected. If you've been digging American Vampire up to this point, issue #20 is another must buy. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Dean Stell Nov 3, 2011

    Middle chapters in stories have a hard time being "the best", but this one does pretty well by telling a compelling story of vampire origins in the USA and finishes with a big HOLY CRAP moment. Nicely done (again). Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Grant McLaughlin Nov 6, 2011

    As a discrete object, this issue doesn't do all that much. Seriously, for all the storytelling we get, this issue breaks down to "Hole in the Sky gets vampiric powers". That's it. As much as I love Scott Snyder (and, as we know, it's a lot), this issue doesn't stand up on its own. It'll be great once the rest of the story is told, but if I was just starting out with the series, it wouldn't keep me around. Read Full Review
