American Vampire #23 (Totally Unrelenting Spoilers)

Postby Punchy » Thu Feb 02, 2012 6:43 am

Another rollicking good issue of American Vampire, I actually think this 1950s setting may be my favourite time-period we’ve seen in the book so far. The bulk of the issue continues the drag race, and it’s a brilliant, exhilarating action set piece, wonderfully drawn by Albuquerque, who really does keep getting better and better. The race is interspersed with flashbacks, including some truly creepy scenes from Travis Kidd’s childhood where he’s admitted to an insane asylum for his continued insistence that Vampires killed his family. I wonder if Travis actually was lobotomised? The narration from him has been focussed on ‘the teenage brains’, so it would make sense that he himself didn’t have a complete brain. The revelation of Skinner Sweet at the end was interesting, he looked pretty damn dead at the end of ‘Ghost War’ so how did he survive? It is good to have him back though, he’s a fantastic character.
