Review: American Vampire – Vol 1

Summary (from DC):

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. This first volume of the critically acclaimed series collects issues #1-5 and follows two stories: one written by Snyder and one written by King, both with art by future superstar Rafael Albuquerque. 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.

Holy guacamole, guys. I’m late to the party on this series and I hate myself for it.

Jack is back, and this year he’s presenting a sampling of the houses of Horror Nights past. I will try to note all of the references to previous houses/scarezones as I can, and hopefully I get them all correct. Ha!

While I don’t have pictures of absolutely everything, I will try to touch on some of the most important features of the house, as well as my favorites.
