    The American vampires "- Pearl and her benefactor, Skinner Sweet "- are the type of characters you don't want to embrace, but cannot help but be intrigued by. Their tale is brutal and gory, and the visual presentation of it is remarkable. The creators of "American Vampire" are collaborating "- truly working together "- to deliver one of the best comics on the stands today. Read Full Review

    American Vampire is the best vampire comic currently being published. Not only that, but it is one of the best comics on the stands. Vampire fan or not, all fans of the medium should give this book a look. The writing is exciting and the art is fantastic. I say, buy it. Read Full Review

    I'm a little torn on my recommendation of this title. Definitely pick it up to check out the art, and know that you're going to get some well-oiled storytelling from the writers, but understand that you're not going to be much that will surprise. Again, I wish I could see this same team in a title that just wasn't about vampires. Read Full Review
