Title: This guy, right?

American Vampire #21 (Sure I did, Jimmy Spoilers)

This has been a really strong 3-parter, made even better by Jordi Bernet’s superb artwork, the guy really is brilliant, and perfect for Westerns. The thing I liked the most about this story was that it subverted my expectations, the epic fight between the Vampire-empowered Native Americans and the US Army never actually happened, instead the Natives were slaughtered vampires before the fight could take place. It really underlined how dangerous the vampires can be in Snyder’s world. I also like how Snyder showed us what Skinner was like before he became a vampire, and how his take on the creatures doesn’t really change who you are as a person, Skinner was always pretty dark. The ambiguity over whether Skinner went to scout the number of Natives is brilliant, I personally don’t think he did, but it doesn’t really matter does it? Great stuff. Next issue we jump forward to the 1950s, that’s what’s so great about this book, the whole of American history is open to a bloody re-interpretation.
