A really nice read. A bit short in comparisson to some of the preceding books which had many more pages. Great array of collaborators, from Cloonan to Shalvey, a great anthology indeed!

An Appetizer For Fans 1 April 2014
By Anarchy in the US - Published on
Format: Hardcover
American Vampire, writer Scott Snyder and artist Rafael Albuquerque series, as of this point in writing, is at the half way point of the series and is also on hiatus (though the second half of the series just started in comics). So for AV fans that have been trade waiting, have to continue to wait longer for the return of their favorite series. But alas, Snyder and Albuquerque did not forget about their fans. So while the hiatus was on, both gentlemen decided to give fans a little helping to wheen them off until the second series comes around. And behold, volume 6, an anthology of stories to tide fans over.

AMERICAN VAMPIRE VOL.6 collects the one-shot tale THE LONG ROAD TO HELL and one-shot stories AMERICAN VAMPIRE ANTHOLOGY.

Presented in this book are stories that have nothing to do with continuity and are considered done-on-one tales. So fans of the series can get a little helping of their own, as well as new readers can try out.

The LONG ROAD TO HELL is written by Snyder and drawn by Albuquerque and takes place in 1959 about a young couple who want to get married, but having a night on the town, run into some vampires and the couple become vampires themselves, now to work under a mafia rule. Seeing themselves become vampires, they make it their mission to find a cure for their disease. This tale is an ode to the tough life some people live, as well as the tough job of being a vampire, and even a familiar face makes a pivotal role in the plot. Overall good and emotional story, and leaves you with a mysterious ending.

The ANTHOLOGY collection includes numerous short stories by an array of writers and artist that takes place throughout the time of America, showing some of the earliest tales of vampires in 1588 all the way up to 1940. The writers and artist include Jason Aaron and Declan Shalvey, Rafael Albuquerque and Ivo Milazzo, Jeff Lemire and Ray Fawkes, Becky Cloonan does story and art, Francesco Francavilla does story and art, Gail Simone and Tula Lotay, Gabriel Ba and Fabio Moon does story and art, and Greg Rucka and JP Leon. The art and writing are different with each creative team, yet hold on remarkably well with the series themes. Readers will favor some stories and art more then others, but for me, I enjoyed the Lemire story. Maybe it was Canadian setting. Either way, all aspects of writing and art are well handled.

And finally, also part of the ANTHOLOGY series is two short story, “The Man Who Comes Around”, by Snyder and Albuquerque that give readers a sneak peak at the second half of the series, Second Cycle. And yes, it will leave readers salivating for more.

If there any negatives regarding this sixth volume is the fact it has nothing to do with the main over aching plot of the series with Pearl and Skinner Sweet (except “The Man Who Comes Around” piece). These are tales to further the AV lore, but do not push the main plot forward. So fans still waiting on the inevitable return must continue to wait. Second idea is that some readers might not like the numerous tales by artist and writers. And thirdly, the price of this hardcover is a tad bit much. Both LONG ROAD and ANTHOLOGY cost $8 and $7 in their original comic forms. That’s $15 and yet the hardcover is $23. $8 more for the hardcover increase is a bit much, in my humble opinion, especially since this volume is not necessary to the main story line.

So AMERICAN VAMPIRE VOL.6 is a book meant to tide fans over until the second half of the series comes along. We get some nice stories from a wide range of writers and artist that rest fans minds about whats to come. But this volume is not essential for the main plot and the hardcover price is a bit steep from what is collected here. If you’re a hardcore AV fan or find it cheap, go for it. If you’re a new reader, this is a pretty good jumping on point (though I still recommend starting at the beginning in volume 1).

Love the series, but this one... 16 May 2014
By Mr Dangerous - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Scott Snyder can do no wrong. The guy is basically the best thing to happen to comics in ages. So smart. The stories were fine, but short stories don't really cut it for me. I guess this gives you tastes for things to come or hints at other things.

I like a big over all arc. But that's just me.

Make no mistake this is a fantastic series. So far the rest have been awesome.

This collection brings the fans of American Vampire several different stories - a tale of Travis Kidd, vamp hunter; a check in with Pearl and Henry; a tiny glimpse of Skinner Sweet - lots to keep your interest, and a chance to admire the illustration work of Albuquerque and a host of guest artists! Go ahead, collect them all!

The graphics were great. 5 May 2014
By Cheryl Koch - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I have never read any of the other five books in this series. I thought this one sounded interesting. The cover grabbed my attention and to be honest, if I had not won a copy of this book than I may not have check it out. I liked the first story. It was more of a full length one. The rest of the short stories were ok. I did like that they all took place in different locations across the globe. Some of them I liked better than others. I wished that this anthology actually only featured about 1 or 2 stories less and just made the rest into more full length stories. The graphics were great. They did help give a good visual of each story in great details. The stories are graphic in nature with guts spilling out and people decapitated. So if you can't handle gore than you have been warned.

A vampire history lesson 25 May 2014
By Alt - Published on
Format: Hardcover
American Vampire 6 is a lesson in North American history ... with vampires. Starting with Skinner Sweet in New Mexico (1967), who is thinking about all the stories told about vampires, we are introduced to vampires doing their thing in tribal America (1588), in Topeka during times of slavery (1856), in Canada where a famed bounty hunter meets his match (1877), in Death Valley where Skinner becomes a Hollywood actor (1924), in Hollywood where an aspiring actress becomes a vampire (1925), in a New York nightclub (1940), and in Portland where a vampire has spent years leaking from a gold bullet wound (1940). Some of the stories are better than others, although it is disappointing that they fail to cohere into a larger whole. Still, they all benefit from strong prose.

This is followed by a story set in Nebraska (1959) where a couple of young thieves get a new life and befriend an orphan. This is a well-written story that has more substance than the standard vampire fare of the earlier, shorter tales.

The art is notable for its moodiness. The sketchy style of the first stories is more effective on some pages than on others. The art that accompanies the Nebraska story is excellent.
