American Vampire – It’s What We’re Reading

March 2011

A monthly offering from Drexel Library’s staff about the books we’ve read.

American Vampire

Twilight this is not. Created by short story writer and Columbia University professor Scott Snyder, the comic book series American Vampire is gritty, bloody, and very, very entertaining. The first five installments have been recently collected as a stand-alone graphic novel and feature two seemingly unrelated storylines that eventually converge: those of struggling actress Pearl Jones in 1920s Hollywood and the amoral Skinner Sweet, an outlaw of the 1880s American Old West. This convergence smartly establishes much larger issues that future issues promise to explore. With co-writing credits from Stephen King and gorgeous artwork from Rafael Albuquerque, American Vampire truly is a new creature.

American Vampire can be found in Popular Fiction on the 1st floor of the Library.
