American Vampire continues to be Scott Snyder’s comic masterpiece, more so even than his work on critically acclaimed titles like Batman and Swamp Thing. Volume three moves the stories from the mid-30s to the late 30s/early 40s and World War II. The stories stay compelling and the art by regular Rafael Albuquerque and AV newcomer Sean Murphy is beautiful.
Check out the full review of this twelve issue volume over at the Examiner.
I first read these issues when they were released several months ago and meant to give them a review at the end of the story arc, or at least when the trade came out. I promptly forgot about them until I was perusing my local library and saw the first collection in hardcover. Rather then go home and pull out my back issues, I went ahead and picked it up to read again.
After a quick read, I found them even more enjoyable the second time. Stephen King is a master storyteller. Scott Snyder is none too shabby himself.
Rafael Albuquerque may blow both out of the water though. He draws some of the best comic pages I have seen in years. This guy deserves to be huge in the comics field.
I quite like American Vampire, and for more details, please go read the full review over at the Examiner.
