    Volume One last edited by gravenraven on 05/30/23 12:45AM View full history

    From writers Scott Snyder and Stephen King, AMERICAN VAMPIRE introduces a new strain of vampire – a more vicious species – and traces the creatures' bloodline through decades of American history. This first hardcover volume of the critically acclaimed series collects issues #1-5 and follows two stories: one written by Snyder and one written by King, both with art by future superstar Rafael Albuquerque. Snyder's tale follows Pearl, a young woman living in 1920s Los Angeles, who is brutally turned into a vampire and sets out on a path of righteous revenge against the European monsters who tortured and abused her. And in King's story set in the days of America's Wild West, readers learn the origin of Skinner Sweet, the original American vampire – a stronger, faster creature than any vampire ever seen before. Don't miss out as Snyder and King set fire to the horror genre with this visionary, all-original take on one of the most popular monster stories! This beautiful collection features a new introduction by Stephen King and bonus art including character sketches, variant covers and more!

    Pre Thoughts I bought this graphic novel at comic con thinking that this book was going to be just like every other vampire story out there, but what I got instead was something totally different. At first glance I saw that Stephen King did the second feature stories to each issue. When I saw his name my first impression was "s@&^* this must be creepy!"

    A Magnificent Work Of Art 0

We see her meet Skinner Sweet and how she was gruesomely turned into a vampire. Reading her...
