American Vampire, Vol. 1American Vampire, Vol. 1 by Scott Snyder

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


Description from Amazon because it's a very succinct summary: "This volume follows two stories: one written by Snyder and one written by King. Snyder's story is set in 1920's LA, we follow Pearl, a young woman who is turned into a vampire and sets out on a path of righteous revenge against the European Vampires who tortured and abused her. This story is paired with King's story, a western about Skinner Sweet, the original American Vampire-- a stronger, faster creature than any vampire ever seen before with rattlesnake fangs and powered by the sun."

The point of both stories is an attempt to set the vampire legend in a uniquely American setting and mindset. Some great creepy imagery and interesting ideas. There's so much vampire stuff out there that it's pleasantly surprising how fresh this take feels.
