I was also over-joyed to see a return of Raphael Albuquerque's art. His lush women and terrifying vampires are a bit part of the heart of the series for me and I never enjoy a story as much when he isn't drawing it (even through the other artists are usually quite good). I loved this story and I would have been happy to have it comprise the whole book.

Only 13 left in stock (more on the way). I am in love with Rafael Albuquerque's art. I don't remember the last time I've been as enchanted with the visuals on a graphic novel as I am here. It's a perfect marriage of story and art.

Artist Rafael Albuquerque deftly captures both the 1880s Old West and 1920s Los Angeles.

Ships from and sold by Shewill4. Artist Rafael Albuquerque deftly captures both the 1880s Old West and 1920s Los Angeles. When it came to translating Stephen King's story, the artist gave the panels a grungier look that blends perfectly with the untamed Western motif-a roaring contrast to the effete Art Deco style of mid-1920s Hollywood that occupies the other half of the book. He relies heavily on shadows and black profiles, but also suffuses the daytime portions with strong desert sunlight.

American Vampire, Vol. 3 book. Rafael Albuquerque’s artwork is as usual, brilliantly done as the artwork is scratchy and yet, it fits perfectly for this type of story. Snyder seems to be committed to American Vampire for the long haul, judging by the seeds sown. The second story brings back the characters of Book and Cash from Volume 2 and sends them off to Germany. I loved the way that Rafael Albuquerque illustrates the characters’ facial expressions in a dramatic way as I really felt the emotions that the characters were feeling.

item 2 SCOTT SNYDER-AMERICAN VAMPIRE VOL. 3 (UK IMPORT) BOOK NEW -SCOTT .

American Vampire is an American comic book series created by writer Scott Snyder and drawn by artist Rafael Albuquerque. It is published by DC Comics under its Vertigo imprint. With the announcement that Vertigo would be closing down by 2020, writer Scott Snyder clarified that American Vampire would continue under the newly-created DC Black Label imprint.

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER This volume of the critically-acclaimed AMERICAN VAMPIRE follows the star of AV Volumes 1 and 2, Pearl, and her husband Henry, as he is recruited by a mysterious group of vampire hunters, off to World War II Japan to find a new breed of blood sucker. But what does the notorious vampire Skinner Sweet have to do with it?From the Hardcover edition.
  • This is one of my favorite volumes in the American Vampire series, and it is largely due to the story centering around the teenaged vampire-killer Travis Kidd. He is a sleek, cool, badass who has embarked on a lifelong vendetta to kill as many vampires as he possibly can. Travis is also perpetually tracking the elusive Skinner Sweet--the daywalking vampire who killed his family when he was a young boy. This story was superbly written by Scott Snyder, and supremely illustrated by Rafael Albuquerque. I won't reveal too many spoilers, but the back and forth dialog between Sweet and Kidd was amazing--and the car chase culminating in the fistfight between them was phenomenally entertaining. My favorite part of the story was when Travis Kidd had to explain the concept of 'cool' to Skinner Sweet. Remember, we are in the 1950s in this story (as if Rafael Albuquerque's cover art wasn't a dead giveaway). I also liked the damsel-in-distress situation that was an important part of the 'Death Race' story. The damsel herself, Piper, was an enigmatic character and not at all what she seemed to be--as Travis seemed to instinctively know. Volume four of the American Vampire series was basically divided into two sections; the first half of the volume dealing with Skinner Sweet and James Book and their roles in the Indian Wars in the late nineteenth century, and the latter stories dealing with Travis Kidd and Vassal agent Calvin Poole in the 1950s. As we learned in previous installations of the American Vampire series, Skinner Sweet became a notorious gunslinging outlaw in the American Wild West before karma and a particularly nasty Carpathian vampire caught up with him. Sweet's morally upright stepbrother James Book took a very different career path and became a famous lawman. I liked the 'Beast in the Cave' story in the beginning of volume four mainly because we are given some of the background history on the tumultuous relationship between Book and Sweet as young boys. We learn of many reasons why the brothers were mutually antipathetic at a very young age. Simply put, Skinner Sweet was a psychopath before the term was ever invented, and this helps to explain why he became the terrifying vampire later in our story. The other tales in this volume were good, but pale in comparison with 'Death Race'. I agree with another reviewer who believes this particular volume of the series has a 'disjointed' feel to it. There is nothing wrong with going backward and forward in time while narrating several stories, but these tales didn't flow together very well. I've stated before that I am a fan of Scott Snyders writing and Rafael Albuquerques artistry. This series is outstanding primarily due to their stewardship and I hope we will see many more contributions from them in the future on this series. I almost want to say that their character Travis Kidd is compelling enough to have his own stand alone series. Unlike most teenagers, Travis is definitely a rebel WITH a cause. I like the notion of a teenaged vampire killer crisscrossing the country in the 1950s, rooting out vampire nests and other things that went 'bump in the night'. I cannot rate American Vampire highly enough as a series.

  • It would have taken an amazing book to top American Vampire Vol. 3 and, honestly, this book isn't amazing. But it is still really enjoyable.

    There are three main stories. The first, a flashback story with Skinner Sweet (pre-vamp) and James Book felt a bit contrived. I was surprised to see something that felt so much like a ret-con so early in the series. Honestly, I'd be happy if Snyder and co. never went back to the old west in the series if this is what is left to present, especially when there is so much fun to be had in the 1950s and beyond.

    Travis Kidd, the hip rocker vampire hunter featured in the second story, is as much fun as one could hope for . . . and more. I was also over-joyed to see a return of Raphael Albuquerque's art. His lush women and terrifying vampires are a bit part of the heart of the series for me and I never enjoy a story as much when he isn't drawing it (even through the other artists are usually quite good). I loved this story and I would have been happy to have it comprise the whole book.

    The final story, starring Calvin Poole (but now in vamp form) was enjoyable, but never really got full legs for me. I'm looking forward to future stories with Calvin.

    All in all, this is well worth the read. I missed Pearl (she only features slightly and then mainly to hint at future story developments), but am very much looking forward to reading the next volume. This is one of the most satisfying comics in years for me and the hardcover volume's high quality is worth the money.

  • Scott Snyder continues telling a great story with the next vol of the series. It's a different time period now but the same characters. I won't spoil the story but the way he makes you care for the characters is fantastic. I also like the side story included after the main issues. They fill in what others are doing while the main characters are elsewhere.

    I don't want to say what the story is or what happens so i'll just say that this vol is just as good as the last two, so I def say to pick it up!

  • 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).

  • I actually own this complete series in single issues but bought this so I could go back and reread it without pulling the originals out. This is a fantastic series in general but this story combines my love of horror with the 40s/WWII theme on two different fronts.

    The first story is part of the main series and puts Pearl and Skinner in the Pacific as they fight to survive against a deadly breed of vampires. This story is intense and the art makes sure to show this intensity.

    In the second story is from a miniseries and takes place at about the same time as the events in the first. You get to revisit Book and Cash as they go into a Nazi occupied castle as spies trying to find a cure for vampirism. It is an impressive story but the art on this one is slightly less n quality than the first.

  • This collection brings the fans of American Vampire several different stories - a tale of Travis Kidd, vamp hunter; a check in with Pearl and Henry; a tiny glimpse of Skinner Sweet - lots to keep your interest, and a chance to admire the illustration work of Albuquerque and a host of guest artists! Go ahead, collect them all!
