    American Vampire is an astonishing series, that deserves to be a TV show as much as The Walking Dead. Despite some small nitpicking, this book is a  great example of Scott Snyder's writing skills. Read Full Review

    I really like the direction Snyder is taking with this series. He's taken the vampire genre and turned it into a fantastic, emotional narrative. Pearl's character is insanely well written and I can't wait to see where Snyder takes her. I give this issue a 9/10. Read Full Review

    Snyder and Albuquerque combine to lead Pearl down the path of introspection throughout the issue, but Pearl's assignment from the Vassals takes her, literally, back to where everything began. There is one hell of a flashback in this issue that presents a stunning way to bring the whole series -- the whole freaking series -- full circle. The final page is one of those gasping cliffhangers that sends the reader back to the credits box to check progress in the story (this is part 4 of the six-part "Blacklist" story) and almost as quickly to the internet to see when the next issue is due out (interestingly enough, on Halloween). Naturally, with Skinner Sweet as an ally, Pearl will face some dreadful foes. The challenge Snyder and Albuquerque leave her facing at the end of this issue, compounded by everything she endures throughout, makes "American Vampire" #31 one of the strongest issues of the series yet with a the setup that sets the bar high for the next issue.
