American Vampire ain't on my pull list. I might review Hellboy next week, but a Dark Avengers: Ares #1 review is more likely to appear.

Off to the shop on Thursday, if a download appears between now and then I'll review. It was a great choice though, the book has been superb.

As ever, when we're told to stop the drama, the thread slows down, like it or not, drama fuels reviews, with people posting positive reviews in response to negativity and vice versa.

I've been very busy this week, I don't think I ever understood what those little CGI animals were arguing over.

All I know is, Richard Corben=win.

American Vampire #8

You know the old saying about every issue being someone's first? Well this was my first issue of American Vampire and yeahbuhwah? This isn't new reader friendly at all. Not that there was any expectation on my part that it would be, the third issue of a series' second arc isn't typically a good jumping on point for any comic.

While I was able to get a general sense of why this might be an interesting comic there wasn't enough background information being provided for me to gain any context for any of the scenes or characters. At least if I do go back and start reading the series in collected form, this didn't make enough sense for it to have spoiled anything.

The art was cool and it set a good tone. Albuquerque seems to be channeling a bit of Yu here which I don't remember from the last time I picked up a comic with his art but I liked it.

This is a tough comic to judge with no prior knowledge of the series. I still plan to eventually read it in trades, but this issue didn't inspire a desire to run out and pick it up sooner than I would have otherwise.

Story: 5
Art: 8
Overall: 6.5

women should be respected and smacked. Have you not read the book: "How to Achieve the Perfect Relationship" by Dr. Henry Pym?
