    "American Vampire" might chase some people away simply because of the outrageous amount of hype vampires are receiving nowadays, but Snyder, King, and Albuquerque are delivering a different kind of vampire story "- as different as the philosophies of the United States and Europe were in the years between World War I and World War II. While much of Europe was trying to rebuild, the States were trying to build anew, investigating the future and marching boldly toward it. That's what is happening here. The American Vampires "- Skinner Sweet, Pearl Jones, and Hattie Hargrove -" are true Americans, seeking new opportunity and making the most of it once they find it. This first arc may be over, but the stories of these characters most certainly are not. Snyder and King know better than to wrap up a story completely. Amazingly, this issue is still very well suited for new readers, but it certainly wouldn't hurt anyone to go back and read the whole series to this point. Read Full Review

    His name and contribution to the book may have resulted in bigger sales for American Vampire, but I have little doubt that Scott Snyder and Raphael Albuquerque will maintain the same level of quality that I've come to expect from the title. Read Full Review
