Desperados Waiting For A Train, Punctured Flapper

American Vampire #1, by Scott Snyder, Rafael Albuquerque, and Stephen King*

This is somewhat intriguingly plotted and well drawn, but there is a fundamental problem here. Look at the title: American Vampire. Jesus, what was I thinking? Vampires are no longer interesting and there should be a law against anyone using them as a basis for a story.

I'm not quite sure where the image comes from. If it's yours, let me know and I will include a link.

*yes, that Stephen King.

Aw, give us more of a chance than that, Ian! Don't let vampire fatigue get to you :)

Direct appeals from creators are very persuasive, I will give #2 a go. In fairness, there were things to like about #1; the party in the mansion was genuinely creepy, and the railroad baron was a nice deviation from vampire clich├ęs. Good luck with the title.

That picture has made my night. That panda is having the time of its life.
