I don t know why I wasn t crazy about it the first time I read it but I really enjoyed Snyder s story this time around This volume deals with Henry and Pearl getting a visit from a vampire hunting group which leads into several other new storylines that include old and new faces The plot moved along well and was interesting and I liked the way the cast is expanding I enjoyed the way everything sort of jumps around between past and present and one set of character to another If it s not done right that can be super annoying But in this case it just kept things from getting stale I thought I know I m late to the party but I guess better late than never

Read American Vampire, Volume 2 ó PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Sinessmen 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 From the Hardcover editi.

Read American Vampire, Volume 2 ó PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Bloodsuckers in Hollywood were nothing compared to what awaits them in Sin CityIn 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 bu. It s all Stephen King s fault The first Scott Snyder comic I read was American Vampire Volume 1 co written by King King s folksy down home style of writing was so irritating and is why I no longer read his novels that it completely tarnished my reading experience so I ended up hating the book So I was surprised with how much I liked Snyder s writing when I picked up Batman The Black Mirror and I ve been delighted ever since with his and Greg Capullo s New 52 Batman run Superman Unchained and even his excellent standalone horror comic Severed After so many great books I thought he d earned the benefit of the doubt and decided to give American Vampire another shot and wow what a difference no Stephen King makes or Uncle Stevie as he creepily asks his Dear Readers to call him It s 1936 and a few years on from the wild wild west of the last book The Hoover dam is being constructed and the town that will soon become the sprawling mecca to vice Las Vegas is just beginning to grow But the project s financial backers are being picked off their bodies left drained of blood who could be the culprit in a book with the word vampire in the title Meanwhile Pearl Jones is living happily with her beau Henry but trouble is never too far behind Neither of the two stories are particularly bad but neither are especially brilliant Snyder s knack for originality seems to be strangely absent from his creator owned series Both the Las VegasSkinner Sweet here calling himself Jim Smokes and Pearl Jones stories are essentially vampires against vampire hunters ie the archetypical vampire story There s a slight edge to the Skinner story as it s told from the perspective of the sheriff whose life goes from being happy with a wife and a kid on the way and a good job to well what happens when he crosses Skinner Sweet I like that Skinner wasn t the narrator and that his use was minimal maintaining his mystiue and impact when he does appear in the story And Pearl s story while being straightforwardly dull horror has at least the interesting character of Hattie who sets out after Pearl on a mission of vengeance Besides the unremarkable and oftentimes predictable plotting Snyder s dialogue is at its most stilted here For example when the sheriff calls up his wife at home and she reminds him that a his father died recently leaving him sheriff and b that Jim Smokes killed his dad and that he can t control his anger around Jim Smokes Ouch that s a lotta exposition in one seemingly brief call between two people who both already know this stuff There s a lot of similarly trite dialogue peppered throughout which is surprising as Snyder s usually artful than this Reading the preview of Volume 3 at the back of this book I m beginning to see the idea behind the series which is following the misadventures of Skinner and Pearl through the ages the first was the frontier days the second is Depression era America and the third looks to be WW2 America and so on which does seem to be an intriguing concept There are certainly a lot of roles Skinner could dress up as vampire version of a CIA spook on the grassy knoll Kurtz in Vietnam Wall Street moneyman in the 80s and so on After reading the second volume I definitely don t hate the series as much as I did after the first and the second book was decent enough to make me want to keep reading the series but I still feel that American Vampire ranks as the least impressive of Snyder s output
