    4. Find all of my reviews at 52bookminimum What happens when good ol Uncle Stevie gets sick and tired of the sweetie vamp craze Well, vampires go from this back to something a little like this American Vampire kind of fell into my lap by accident I went to the library s website looking for Wytches 1 which of course they didn t have However, my temper tantrum was quickly interrupted when I focused in on the word VAMPIRE and requested this instead While this selection wasn t able to seal the deal [...]


    5. American Vampire tells two tales the origin and early days of American vampire Skinner Sweet in the dying days of the Old West, and the tragedy of aspiring actress Pearl Jones, who runs afoul of old world vampires in 1920 s Los Angeles How will their tales intersect Where do I start with this I ve never read Scott Snyder before but I loved his writing in this Stephen King s was also really good, not surprising since he did write my favorite epic of all time, The Dark Tower Rafael Albuquerque s a [...]


    6. Failing to blow minds, American Vampire succeeds as an original and respectable thriller in the exhausted sub genre of vampire horror It s historical fiction meets slasher, with a large cast of stock characters begging for development With expressionistic illustrations prone to being too rough Fun as guilty pleasure reading, with the potential for a great series.


    7. SPOILERSOk it s my own fault for falling for it I know vampires are overused in today s culture, so much so that have a store called Vampire , but I still went ahead with reading this comic book, thinking that somehow Scott Snyder and Stephen King had pulled off a remarkable fresh version of the vampire story I hoped, but I was wrong Snyder writes about Pearl, a wannabe actress in mid 1920s Hollywoodland working bit parts until one day she s invited to the party of a big time producer, where she [...]


    8. American Vampire Vol 1caught my eye when I was at the bookstore getting the next two volumes of the Sandman series Then I saw one of the storylines was written by Stephen King and I had to have it I was not disappointed.Within are two stories, one about Skinner Sweet, late 1800 s and the other about Pearl Jones, taking place around 1925 I enjoyed them both but Skinner was my favorite He s not even a good guy he s an evil vampire, just the way I like them , sporting a western duster and a pepperm [...]


    9. I grabbed this randomly, so I wasn t expecting anythinggood or bad Maybe that made a difference Now that I ve finished it, and I m reading the reviews, I m thinking I might have been disappointed if I d thought I was going to get a new take on vampires It s not a new kind of vampire Not really Cowboy Vampires I m sure there s a romance writer out there that beat Snyder and King to the punch.Yes I m serious.Evil vampires Um, I m pretty sure that s been done before.Besides, it s not like all of th [...]


    10. I ve always loved vampire narratives, but these days I feel as though I have to make that statement with a but not those sparkly Meyers bullshit vamps disclaimer because the term vampire now requires two definitions 1 glittering and eternal boy band wannabe who tries to protect naive and horny young women from the monster he s become while slurping up woodland critters like they re Hi C fruit boxes, and 2 vampires who seduce and cruelly toy with their prey before ripping open a jugular and letti [...]


    11. I probably like vampire centric stories as much as the next person who had seen enough of it in movies and shows In fact, two my current favorite 22 shows that I watch dutifully each season launch are about vampires The Vampire Diaries and its superior spin off The Originals I haven t read any Anne Rice books but was familiar with her mythology because of a friend who obsessed about her work I continue to regret to this day the the fact that I had read Stephenie Meyer s shit of a series, and I e [...]


    12. image error 6 stars Brief Introduction Now, it is rare that I often read many vampire comics with the exception of Fray , so when I heard so many good things about Scott Snyder and Stephen King s graphic novel, American Vampire, I just had to check it out and boy, was I amazed at how creative and intense this story really was What is the story In this volume, we are introduced to two separate stories that feature a ruthless outlaw, Skinner Sweet and a young and beautiful actress, Pearl Jones Ski [...]


    13. Review from BadelyngeRemember when vampires were still scary Perhaps you don t I should break out my copy of Salem s Lot to remind myself that these bloodsuckers used to be than just pale possible boyfriends in the latest teen vamp rom Stephen King is one half of the writing talent on duty for this tale of mostly very bad vampires in the wild west of the late 1800s and the movie making era of the 1920s King s introduction to the book has a lot to say about the current state of vampire fiction [...]


    14. I have always been a fan of Vampires So when I saw this comic book I hopped on board The first vol collects issues 1 5 of the American Vampire series Each issue is told in two parts the first part written by Scott Snyder takes place ca 1925 and primarily revolves around a young actress named Pearl, who happens to become a snack for vampires one night at a Hollywood party Pearl is then resurrected by former wild west outlaw extraordinaire Skinner Sweet, who just happens to also be a vampire This [...]


    15. I guess I m not that into westerns, even westerns with vampires Stephen King wrote the origin story here of Skinner Sweet, outlaw turned vampire This was violent and gory and so so, as Sweet just wasn t that interesting to me He didn t sparkle, which I appreciated, but all we know about him is that he likes candy and violence To care about a character, I need to know details than that does he like cats, for example What s his favorite book Hobbies, other than hold ups He was basically just a mo [...]


    16. I really wanted to like this After Batman The Black Mirror and All Star Batman, I have high expectations for Scott Snyder This book was half good I loved the bits with Pearl and old Hollywood I can totally see how that would work as a TV show I like the character and what happens to her is just tragic enough to set up a good motivation for her journey She s and interesting character and I hated having her portions inter spliced with Skinner Sweets I just didn t care about him The outlaw has bee [...]


    17. This is one of those books everyone but me liked I am not really sure why, but I wasn t impressed Cue the booing Ok, maybe I am sure I think the cliched storyline simply didn t do it for me I found everything seriously predictable Skinner Sweet s backstory Boring Pearl s story Saw it coming.I expected from you Mr.King And you, Mr.Snyder Don t think I didn t see you over thereDespite all attempts, otherwise, I find it seriously lacking in atmosphere The art would have worked for me if the plot w [...]


    18. Time is the only constant For the living it never stops For the dead it doesn t matter And for the undead For the undead, time is a joke to be laughed at The story of Skinner Sweet and Pearl Jones A new step on evolution when it comes to vampire kind Series Review booksandstuff1357.wordpress.c


    19. I m about to reach the final volume of this fantastic series that is the first iirc comic that got me into comics that aren t about superheroes This series is one I would say literally changed my life I have an original printing of the first issue I love this series so much so the least I could do is review some volumes What s it about There s this woman Pearl Jones who s trying to become a movie star but that isn t working out She does however have some creepy guy Skinner Sweet hanging out near [...]


    20. I ll start this off by saying that I fully expected to hate this or at least be bored by it Despite the fact that Scott Snyder is highly regarded in the comic industry at the moment what with kicking all kinds of ass with the recent Batman reboot relaunch whatever and perennial favorite, Uncle Stevie lending his writing chops to the series, I still expected mediocrity.Why Because I m starting to hate vampires No, this isn t an anti twilight rant nor does it have anything to do with disliking som [...]


    21. Stephen King win Scary ass, blood thirsty vampires win Bone chilling, full color graphic illustrations win Awesome Awesome Awesome.This was great, and the only thing holding me back from gushing is that I still haven t been completely won over to the graphic novel format Steven Niles rocked my world with 30 Days of Night those vampires kick ass I was actually really pleased with the movie too I love how Niles re imagines the vampire, stealing it back from the trashy, paranormal bodice rippers Fo [...]




    22. Even though I had heard great things about Scott Snyder s American Vampire series, I ve been hesitant in checking it out Like many people, I m just too vampired out these days After finally reading the 1st collection, I realize my fears were completely unfounded Just as Scott Snyder recently managed to breathe new life into the 70 year old Batman franchise, he has done the same with the vampire genre American Vampire chronicles the rise of a new breed of vampiree first vampires conceived on Amer [...]


    23. I love stories about the dark underbelly of America, and American Vampire delivers that in blood red spades with the first volume of this series.The first American vampire gets made accidentally, when vicious outlaw Skinner Sweet gets a few stray drops of blood on him, and what he becomes isn t a pale, sun sick, moneyed European vampire but a creature of warped reflection, cavernous jaw, and talon like fingers Seriously, the art here is amazing Rafael Albuquerque has a way of lending faintly ani [...]


    24. Meet Skinner Sweet, the peppermint candy chomping former Wild West outlaw who traded his six shooters for fangs and immortality to become antihero of the vampire genre.Scott Snyder and Stephen King split the storytelling duties in this graphic novel, originally published as the first five issues of the Vertigo series Artist Rafael Albuquerque captures 1920s LA and 1880s Old West outstandingly The first dozen pages or so are deliciously restrained, a buildup that pays off when Albuquerque unleash [...]


    25. Scott Snyder and Stephen King want you to remember that vampires are scary Cold blooded murderers, in fact These vampires are terrible, and frightening, and exactly how I like to read them.There are two related storylines here There s Pearl, an aspiring actress in 1920s Hollywood Snyder s storyline and there s Skinner Sweet, a Wild West outlaw King s work When Skinner is made a vampire, he s different from the older, European vampires, the first in a line of American vampires with different abil [...]



    26. I think the vampire is dead I really do The number of incarnations, the watered down mythology I think we have beaten it to death But then every so often, something comes along that blows my mind and makes me realize that Twilight and the Vampire Diaries aren t really about vampires, but are instead soap operas made to sell a thing Like Let the Right One in comes along and absolutely stuns me and makes me relaize that there are writers who care about the writing in their genre than recreating a [...]


    27. A lot of people have raved about this comic, but I have to admit that I just didn t feel the love In this first volume, we meet the hero of the story Skinner Sweet and get to hear about his origin as a vampire It is quite clear that Sweet is a monster well before he became a vampire and i have a bit of a problem with that Even an anti hero needs to have some redeeming qualities, and Sweet has none for me to hang my empathy on When he is turned, he becomes a new sort of vampire, one who can survi [...]
