American Vampire #26 (You are the proof Spoilers)

Holy crap, was that a Werewolf at the end there? Is AV branching out into other monsters now? If so, that would be awesome, but then again, vampires in other stories (such as oh, I dunno, Dracula) have the ability to turn into dogs, so this may just be another species of Vampire, with Calvin’s role as a Taxonomist, I can see that being the case. I liked how this issue used the issue or Race in 1950s America, and how it paralleled Calvin’s position as a black man with that of being part of an entirely new species and the conflict between his type of Vampire and other types. I also really liked how this story played with your expectations, at first you think the old guys are racist, but then you think, nope, they’re OK. But then it’s a double-twist and they’re not only racist but also Vampires or maybe Werewolves! Scott Snyder, always keeping you on your toes. I liked that we got to see some more of Calvin and find out a bit about his back-story, such as his brother, it’s great that this book is developing such a large cast, it gives it an epic feel. It was also good to see Roger Cruz show up as guest-artist, I remember when he was the by-word for lame 90s X-Men fill-ins, but whilst he’s still filling-in here, he does a great job and maintained Albuquerque’s style well.

Looks like I picked the right time to drop the book. Werewolves? Roger Cruz? No thanks.
