Book Description

8 April 2014 American Vampire
A New York Times bestseller! In the first story, series mainstays Skinner Sweet, Pearl, and company return to Hollywood in the '50s during the Red Scare. In a time where America was on the lookout for the next Communist threat, was the real danger something far more insidious? A major turning point in American Vampire lore begins here! In the second tale, familiar face and vampire hunter Felicia Book is "retired" from vampire hunting when she gets called back into action to track down and kill the most powerful vampire of all time. The hunt takes our heroes through post-war Europe, behind the Iron Curtain, and into the heart of Russia to track this deadly enemy. Writer Scott Snyder (Batman, Swamp Thing) and artist Rafael Albuquerque bring together even more threads to the complex tapestry that is the world of American Vampire.

4.0 out of 5 stars Thumbs Up! 23 Feb 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This book contains three stories. The first is Snyder’s take on the granddaddy of all vampires, Dracula. This is executed very well as he finds his own path rather than messing with what has gone before. It is a good chase/ road movie with some of the secondary characters we have taken a shine to.

This story is illustrated by Dustin Nguyen who briefly exhibits his own style before coming into line and adopting the Albuquerque template. There are a lot of neat little artistic touches and some lovely sketched flashbacks. Even the lettering for foreign languages has some good ideas.

The second story concerns Pearl and what has happened following the attack on her home. This is a top quality piece of writing showcasing the emotions and relationships Snyder has a knack for. Where Pearl is, Skinner isn’t far behind, but he does feel criminally under, or even ill, used. The great thing about vampire stories is you get to bring people back from the dead. But do it too often and death loses its punch.

The third story is a one-shot that works as a fine interlude between bigger stories and dusts off some previous characters ready for a future storyline.

Albuquerque draws the second and third stories and his style has come to define the wonderful look of American Vampire. There are few surprises in his work but we like the comfort and dependability of his craft.

Overall this isn’t a bad volume. Snyder does historical America very well and being set in the 1950’s this leads to the great line of “undeads under the bed.” There is enough topical material to give you a sense of place and as the stories reference each other you do get the bond of a cohesive world.

As always another great instalment in the American Vampire series. Again we dive deeper into the story of Skinner and Pearl, two of my favourite vampires from any fictiion. The book is as action packed as usual and the artwork is stunning as always. Another winner for the fans.

4.0 out of 5 stars Loses some of the magic of 1-4 but still a great 12 April 2013
I had a lot of reasons to not read American Vampire. Firstly I hadn't been overly impressed with Snyder's work on Batman, The Black Mirror story although popular was to my mind actually quite poor. He has since redeemed himself on Batman with Death of the Family but at the time Snyder was not a draw for me. Secondly Vampires have become lame. In an age where fictional media is overrun with Vampire stories and almost all of them undeniably poor (I'm looking at you Twilight) another book about vampires didn't appeal to me. However the first volume had the draw of being co-written by Stephen King. Having just finished the great Dark Tower series I showed faith in King and picked up the first volume. So glad I did as 4 volumes later this series has really cemented itself as a truly great comic series. It has a core of characters like Pearl Jones and Skinner Sweet who you really get behind and therefore you are always involved into the story. The setting of the stories adds a great deal, taking place in a wide variety of time slots in American history. I love Americana, from Springsteen, to Clint Eastwood and Humphrey Bogart it doesn't matter to me and this book really brings out that unique romanticism of America. Capturing everything from the Wild West to the Swinging 30's to the Rock n Roll 50's, this series not only takes place in various times but really brings out the essence of its setting in each of its stories. I have loved every volume of American Vampire so needless to say I was more than excited when I landed my hands on volume 5.

Volume 5 contains 2 main story arcs. It starts with miniseries "Lord of Nightmares" and follows with issues 28-34 entitled "The Black List". The first story is what really brings this volume down making it the worst of the American Vampire series.
