5.0 out of 5 stars The best graphic novel ive read in a long while! 26 Feb 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I love vampire stories and am rather picky about the graphic novels i buy and like. This rather thick graphic novel has 3 stories all by different artists but it works, damn well. It's well written too and i will definitely be buying volume 4 and 5!

4.0 out of 5 stars Another great entry..... 14 Nov 2013
By J. Binkerd - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
And now we come to the third volume of Scott Snyder's Vertigo comic series, American Vampire. Due to the nature of reviewing a series, this review will unavoidably contain spoilers for Volume I and Volume II, so be forewarned.

For the bulk of this book we are firmly set in the 1940s, exploring the vampiric undercurrent to the Second World War. But first, we spend an issue following Skinner Sweet in Strange Frontier as he takes the time to visit a traveling Wild West show a la Buffalo Bill. This particular show has his showdown with Jim Book as one of the moments it dramatizes, and after realizing that his old girl is part of the show Sweet decides to have some fun, even some old scores for himself and others.... In Ghost War we follow Henry Preston and Pearl Jones as they face the Pacific theater, where there are worse things than Japanese soldiers to worry about. Preston joins a secret mission for the Vassals Of The Morningstar to combat a new breed of vampire on Taipan, soon to be overrun by American troops. Along for the ride is Skinner Sweet, out to settle old scores.... Lastly, Survival Of The Fittest follows Felicia Book and Cash McCogan on a mission behind Nazi lines in search of a supposed cure for vampirism. What they find instead could destroy us all.....

This is every bit as awesome as you would expect it to be after reading the previous two volumes of the series. Snyder continues to keep things fresh and exciting. Albuquerque's art is a perfect fit for the series, rough and unrefined yet at the same time clearly communicating the action and proving to be surprisingly beautiful at times. Sean Murphy does a credible job of matching Albuquerque's style, keeping a continuity to the artwork that can't be easy to achieve. If you've been along for the ride since the beginning, by all means don't stop now! I very much look forward to seeing where this goes in future volumes, as soon as I can find a way to get my hands on them. This is the last one my library has in it's collection.....

Content: Same as before, R-rated language, violence that is occasionally gory and disturbing (what do you expect? It's a vampire book!), and occasional sexual content/nudity. I keep telling you folks, Vertigo comics aren't for kids.....

In a modern world where sparkly vampires who are sensitive to teenage girls needs, American Vampire sets a new standard of creatures of the night that are vicious and brutal.
4.0 out of 5 stars Because Vampires Should Be Scary 6 April 2014
By Jonathan Prince - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I actually own this complete series in single issues but bought this so I could go back and reread it without pulling the originals out. This is a fantastic series in general but this story combines my love of horror with the 40s/WWII theme on two different fronts.

The first story is part of the main series and puts Pearl and Skinner in the Pacific as they fight to survive against a deadly breed of vampires. This story is intense and the art makes sure to show this intensity.

In the second story is from a miniseries and takes place at about the same time as the events in the first. You get to revisit Book and Cash as they go into a Nazi occupied castle as spies trying to find a cure for vampirism. It is an impressive story but the art on this one is slightly less n quality than the first.

If you like the series, then this keeps things going. Great fun and has some bite to it. Not your average comic, but in a great way.
