5.0 von 5 Sternen One of the best comics on the shelf! 9. Februar 2012
Von Jason Bean - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
My favorite comic still running on the stands is easily 'American Vampire' and this third volume is the best collection they've released this far. Collected here is the next 7 issues (12-18) of the American Vampire comic as well as the five issues of 'Survival of the Fittest' (Snyder's spin-off series) making this a terrific deal for your $$.

The stories in this volume of American Vampire updates things in and/or around WWII. After a nice single story involving series antagonist (and american vampire) Skinner Sweet the action shifts to protagonist (and also vampire) Pearl Jones and her human husband Henry being recruited for a mission by the 'Vassals of the Morning Star' (a Vampire hunting group). In the story 'Survival of the Fittest' we see Felicia Book and Cashel McCogan (protagonist from 'Devil in the Sand') working as agents for the Vassals on a mission to rescue a scientist who may have a cure for vampirism.

While the vampire lore in this series is always cool and fascinating (dealing with the different cultures and breeds of vampires) what I really like about 'American Vampire's stories are it's fleshed out characters and how we keep getting different perspectives. Starting characters Skinner and Pearl are always compelling but it's especially nice to get Henry's point of view as he deals with aging alongside is vampire wife. 'Survival of the Fittest' stays focused on Felicia and Cash while getting more about the Vassals of the Morning Star (and prove you don't need Skinner to tell a great story in this series!).

As usual the artwork in 'American Vampire' is pitch perfect. Regular Rafael Albuquerque is at the top of his game with the series and just keeps getting better. Danijel Zezelj gives a nice guest-contribution to the opening story with Skinner and perfectly sets up the tone for the rest of the book. Sean Murphy's pulp-ish angles perfectly compliment the more action-packed 'Survival of the Fittest'. The violence in this collection of 'American Vampire' is vicious as usual but it never gets overbearing as Snyder and his artists know how to pace things out for full effect.

I really can't praise this collection enough. For people new to 'American Vampire' you'll want to start with the first collection. I thought the first was a bit uneven, but after the second volume 'American Vampire' became my favorite comic on the stands and this third volume only solidifies my feelings about this series (and again gives fans more bang for their buck by including 'Survival of the Fittest'). A must-buy!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Best So Far 13. Mai 2012
Von Melanie Ivanoff - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
For this volume, we've moved up to WW2. we learn about some pretty disturbing vampires in Japan and what the Reich's been up to on the vampire front. Pearl kicks some ass and so does Cash (the lawman from Vegas from the last book). Great writing, great art. Read it!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Nazi Vampires! 4. Mai 2012
Von Stevie Z - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
Scott Snyder is an awesome writer. This latest hardcover edition of American Vampire contains 12 issues and only cost $16. What a great deal! On top of the low cost, it is a great book! Snyder continues to use historical backdrops for his vampire stories, which is always such a pleasure to read. There is so much thought and detail put into the writing. It is obvious that Snyder knows his history. This book has a cool story with Skinner Sweet plus it contains the American Vampire 5 issue limited series "Survival of the Fittest", which is about Nazi Vampires. This book is well worth the money and this series is definetely worth checking out if you are into horror comic books...and for the record, these are cool vampire books, unlike the Twilight vampire books (I'm assuming the Twilight books are as bad as the movies).

5.0 von 5 Sternen One of the very best titles on the shelves, period. 26. März 2012
Von James Donnelly - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I'm still rather embarrased and ashamed of myself that it took me so long to start reading this series. After a while of my friends asking me why I hadn't been reading it (particularly after all the raves I had been giving Scott Snyder for his work on DETECTIVE COMICS last year), I finally picked up American Vampire Vol. 1 and couldn't have been more please with its storytelling. After that, I pursued the back issues and finally caught up by the time this arc started. As far as the two stories that are told in this book, the first being from within the actual title itself and the other being from the spin-off mini-series SURVIVAL OF THE FITTEST, both are great but SURVIVAL OF THE FITTEST has the edge over the main comic's arc as far as raw storytelling.

Snyder, in just a few years, has proven himself to be probably the most exciting and best new writing talent in the business since Frank Miller. His tales are consistently smart, consistently well-written, and consistently far above the average comic book tale. SURVIVAL OF THE FITTEST has its strengths in its emotional content, though, and that's the thing that brings me back to Snyder's work every time. He knows how to craft an intelligent and emotionally-investing tale, and once the tale is told, you feel drained. Series regular artist Rafael Albuquerque does some fantastic work, as per usual in the AM VAM segment, where SURVIVAL OF THE FITTEST artist Sean Murphy does some brilliant stuff as well.

Snyder has gotten to the point in his career where he has the pick of the litter as far as artists to work with, and he has absolutely surrounded himself with some of the very best talent in the business. It's hard for me to envision a future where his work keeps getting better, but I think it's very possible that his best work is yet to come. If you're a fan of his, and a fan of horror comics, I also heartily recommend Severed HC, which was another of my favorite comics of the year.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Spanning the Globe 3. Mai 2012
Von tvtv3 - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
AMERICAN VAMPIRE, VOL. 3 consists of three distinct, yet connected stories. The first, "Strange Frontier," is a short-story of exposition set somewhere in the American West of 1919. Skinner Sweet visits a Wild West show (one that is almost directly patterned after Buffalo Bill Cody's). He's surprised at the inaccuracies of the show, particular the gunfight that led to his "death." So, Skinner does what he does best and sets things right. Then he confronts an old girlfriend of his whom he was told was responsible for turning him in. He discovers she loved him more than he ever thought.

The second story, "Ghost War," takes place during WWII. It mostly deals with Henry Preston and his wife Pearl Jones, but also involves Skinner Sweet. Henry has aged well for his age, but he is growing older and Pearl isn't. He's tried numerous times to join the military and fight in the conflict, but each time he's been rejected. Then one of the representatives of the Vassals of the Morning Star shows up and offers Henry an offer he can't refuse. He accepts the assignment and joins a special group of troops that have been selected to investigate a small island the Japanese control in the Pacific. It's rumored that the Japanese have been involved with some old school vampires and have bred a new type of creature. The Vassals want them wiped out and a secret war mission makes a great cover.

The third story in the volume is "Survival of the Fittest." Set in 1941, Felicia Book and Cashel McCogan team up to rescue a botanist in Romania who is rumored to have discovered a cure for vampirism. Posing as a pair of wealthy industrialists who have been supporting the Nazi cause, Felicia and Cash travel into the dark heart (Romania) of the Nazi Empire. There they uncover several surprises that threaten not only the outcome of the war, but the fate of humanity and vampires alike.

AMERICAN VAMPIRE, VOL. 3 is an enjoyable read. However, it's not quite as fascinating as the previous volumes. "Strange Frontier" provides a quick look deeper into the mind of Skinner Sweet and reveals that, perhaps, he never was as evil as the public has been led to believe. "Ghost War" is the strongest part of the volume. It has a lot going for it. However, even though the relationship between Henry and Pearl is the focal point of the story, it's not given the space it needed in this story. "Survival of the Fittest" moves the larger plot of the series along. However, other than one key development, it's completely predictable.

Both "Ghost War" and "Survival of the Fittest" end on a bit of a cliffhanger. It'll be interesting to see how these stories develop and crossover in the future.
