I love Vertigo, and I love Scott Snyder's writing on other books, but his American Vampire just isn't interesting AT ALL. For starters, setting the book in the Roaring 20s was a stroke of genius- a stroke that he abandoned after the first storyline. Then he goes turning everybody we meet into super-characters in someway almost immediately after introducing them. Then there's a secret vampire-killing society that makes a deal that WE KNOW is going to go sour. There's an few interesting dynamics at work- Henry, for instance, Cashel and his baby, MAYBE Skinner and Pearl, but they seem to need time to play out. And frankly, at the rate this book is moving, I feel like their going to play out in little to no time at all.

Sorry, man. You lost me.
