American Vampire #28 (Rumors of my death Spoilers)

Postby Punchy » Sat Jun 30, 2012 9:28 am

One of the main reasons the American Vampire is such a good comic is that it takes cool parts of American history, and throws in some vampires. This new arc looks at a particularly dark time for Hollywood, the McCarthy era, with the Communist blacklists and all of that. Only instead of people hiding Reds under their beds… it’s Undeads. It’s a cool idea, and it’s made even better by the fact that it spins out of already established storylines. It’s not just Snyder going to this era for the sake of it, all of this is happening because of what happened to Henry in #25. It’s going to be great fun to see Skinner and Pearl make their way through 1950s Hollywood. Rafael Albuquerque returns to the book with this issue, and it’s fantastic to have him back, I’ve liked most of the fill-ins, but he’s the co-creator and he just brings something special. I also have to give a shout-out to yet another awesome secret base for the Vassals Of The Morning Star, whether it’s in New York, London or Los Angeles, their subterranean hide-outs are just so cool. So let the Red Scare begin, but it’s the red of blood we should be scared of…
