Make Mine An American Vampire. 0

Because the response was not as high as I would of thought for my review for American Vampire #1, I only reviewed that issue and the review can be read ( HERE).  The review I believe is a fair break down of the narrative style of the book, so the other 4 issues would likely have read the same with less pictures to them.  This review will focus more of the overall package of the American Vampire Hardcover collection.  American Vampire is a are breed of book for Vertigo. ...

The 1920's with a bite.. 0

Pre Thoughts I bought this graphic novel at comic con thinking that this book was going to be just like every other vampire story out there, but what I got instead was something totally different. At first glance I saw that Stephen King did the second feature stories to each issue. When I saw his name my first impression was "s@&^* this must be creepy!"

This volume goes back and forth between 1925 and 1880 with a couple of stories that quickly become entwined. The 1880 story is neatly wrapped in the frame story that an old guy is recounting the events that he puts into a book. It's the story of Skinner Sweet a ruthless wil...

Vampires of the twentieth century! 0

6 stars! Brief Introduction: Now, it is rare that I often read many vampire comics (with the exception of “Fray” ), so when I heard so many good things about Scott Snyder and Stephen King’s graphic novel, “American Vampire,” I just had to check it out and boy, was I amazed at how creative and intense this story really was! What is the story? In this volume, we are introduced to two separate stories that feature a ruthless outlaw, Skinner Sweet and a young and beautiful actress, Pearl Jones...
