And Then I Read: AMERICAN VAMPIRE 9

This issue wraps up the 1920s (1930s?) Las Vegas storyline with an interesting look into the childhood and family of sheriff Cashel, then it becomes a showdown/battle between the various vampire groups and vampire hunters that have been battling for control of the city and the storyline. As you can imagine, things don’t go well for most of them.

While I like the writing in this book, particularly when it goes deep into the characters as the beginning of this one does, but I’m getting less and less from the art. I find the characters confusingly similar, the inking technique unattractive, and the exaggerated vampire images don’t do much for me either. Not sure whether I’ll keep reading it. Mildly recommended.
