Publisher Comments:

While trafficking in a bestselling sub-genre, AMERICAN VAMPIRE introduces a new strain of vampire — a more muscular and vicious species, born of the American West.

It’s Las Vegas circa 1935, and Skinner Sweet and our gal Pearl are about to learn the hard way that the bloodsuckers in Hollywood were nothing compared to what awaits them in Sin City.

In just a few short years, young police Chief Cash McCogan has watched his native city of Las Vegas go from cow-town to wild, glittering boomtown. And when the bodies of prominent businessmen start showing up drained of blood, Chief McCogan finds himself facing a threat much darker and deadlier than anything he could have imagined . . . and the only sure bet in town is that Skinner and Pearl are right in the thick of it.

Review:

"A bloody reinterpretation of American history animates this ultraviolent horror comic. The wide-open gambling and prostitution that accompany construction of Boulder Dam in 1936 are corrupting the town of Las Vegas, Nev.; feeding on human degradation — and blood — is a swarm of vampires, one of the many rival varieties that pass undetected in the transient population of the unsettled West. One local lawman who just wants to protect the innocent finds his comforting certainties stripped away as an outlaw vampire exults in pure wildness. Meanwhile, a female vampire tries to maintain a loving domestic relationship with her mortal husband when she's not ripping the heads off their enemies. Although Stephen King contributed to the early installments of this saga, Snyder now carries the action along with gusto. Albuquerque (in the first four chapters) and Santolouco (last two) deliver art that's appropriately raw and brutal. Exploring how dreams and temptations have shaped America, this series offers thoughtful content alongside the grotesque shape-shifting and spurting gore.
