    Nice ending to this 3-issue back-story for Sweet and Book. It told us a quality story about two friends choosing separate paths for their lives while adding to the AV mythos and giving us a chance to see sequential art from a living legend of the artform in Jordi Bernet. How can you lose with that? Read Full Review

    "The Best in the Cave" has been another success for American Vampire scribe Scott Snyder. By flashing back to the early days of Skinner Sweet and Jim Book's careers to revisit an era when they were on the same side, Snyder has revealed a new, engrossing layer to the duo's tragic tale. If you've been enjoying American Vampire up until now, I don't see this issue changing your mind. Read Full Review

    'Beast In The Cave' is a fun diversion of a story. Scott Snyder shows he knows the decades of this world inside and out. His history is dense and his character timelines are long and illuminated. This myth helps us to know more but ultimately feels like it works best as back story to the main drive of the narrative. This is a character play, a parenthetical aside, that will be more remembered for what it means than actually what it did. Though one of the things it did was bring a gorgeous naked Bernet lady onto the pages, and that's always a positive. In the end, this isn't the strongest "American Vampire" arc and yet it's still highly pleasing and solid quality work. Read Full Review
