Nikki ~ The Nocturnal Bookworm (nyxreadsstuff) The spoiler-free discussion thread for American Vampire, Vol. 1

From writers Scott Snyder and Stephen King, American Vampire introduces a new strain of vampire – a more vicious species – and traces the creatures' bloodline through decades of American history.

Snyder's tale follows Pearl, a young woman living in 1920s Los Angeles, who is brutally turned into a vampire and sets out on a path of righteous revenge against the European monsters who tortured and abused her. And in King's story set in the days of America's Wild West, readers learn the origin of Skinner Sweet, the original American vampire – a stronger, faster creature than any vampire ever seen before.

Jamie Zaccaria Overall review: This is how you do a unique take on vampires while keeping them scary as hell. Interesting story, great choices of setting and fun characters.
