4.0 American Vampire Volume 1 by Scott Snyder, Stephen King and Rafael Albuquerque (Illustrator)
American Vampire Vol. 1 caught my eye when I was at the bookstore getting the next two volumes of the Sandman series. Then I saw one of the story-lines was written by Stephen King and I had to have it. I was not disappointed. Within are two stories, one about Skinner Sweet, (late 1800's) and the o...

Well, mission accomplished. Mostly. The story opens in 1925 with Pearl Jones, a wannabe actress who works three jobs an...

3.5 American Vampire - Volume 1 [Review]
This was recommended to me by Youngest Sis. She reads tons of graphic novels and has offered lots of great suggestions. This is one of those series that I feel will get better over time. The story takes place in the 1920s and in the 1880s. I must say that the 1920s portion was much more interestin...
