Scott Snyder continues to brilliantly develop a very deep and very realistic world for American Vampire. Not only does this issue tell us more about his take on Dracula and the human slaves he has (Renfields), but we are also introduced to a new concept, ‘The Firsts’ a group of Vampires who are the last of their particular species. I also continue to be very interested in the more scientific perspective Snyder is looking at Vampires from, they are a race, a genetic quirk, not magical. The stuff where there is something in the blood of a Carpathian which automatically makes them evil is very intriguing. I also loved the way Snyder and Nguyen did that scene, instead of focussing on Hobbes and Felicia, we see a bunch of animals in the wilderness, the food chain in action. I’m also interested by what we are finding out about Hobbes’ past, it seems that he used to work for Dracula, was he a Renfield?
