    There might be some concern about this title among retailers and readers, with Stephen King no longer co-writing, but I can assure you, this book certainly does not suffer from a lack of King. Snyder has complete command of these characters, a passion for the tales told within, and a plan for this new mythology that we have only begun to glimpse. Snyder recently spoke to CBR about this new arc in a conversation that you can read here. I'm enthused about what has happened in this book to date and I look forward to more disturbing tales in the months to come. Read Full Review

    It's clear that with its second arc American Vampire isn't going to lose any steam. Though its lead character might not play as well on paper just yet, there's no indication that this series is taking any real dip in quality. With plenty of time - and pages - to work with, Scott Snyder and Rafael Albuquerque are no doubt going to continue to build Vampire into one of Vertigo's most memorable titles. Check it out - but be sure to snag the hardcover of the first arc in the next couple weeks. Read Full Review

    I was easily won over by American Vampire #6 and I am looking forward to reading this great series on a regular basis. Despite the huge Vampire boom nowadays, I definitely give American Vampire a big recommendation and this issue is a great start to it. If you are unsure and want to read the prior story arc then the first volume will be in stores soon so you can pick up this great issue to get you started and then read the prior story arc. American Vampire is a book that I am looking forward to sinking my fangs into on a monthly basis and I recommend you do the same. Read Full Review
