American Vampire Vol 2 by Scott Snyder
It’s Las Vegas circa 1935, and Skinner Sweet and our gal Pearl are about to learn the hard way that the bloodsuckers in Hollywood were nothing compared to what awaits them in Sin City.In just a few short years, young police chief Cash McCogan has watched his native city of Las Vegas go from cow-town to wild, glittering boomtown. And when the bodies of prominent businessmen start showing up drained of blood, Chief McCogan finds himself facing a threat much darker and deadlier than anything he could have imagined . . . and the only sure bet in town is that Skinner and Pearl are right in the thick of it.
To say I love this series is a gross understatement. Snyder’s writing is on-point and paced perfectly. Readers continually want to keep reading, this series is so hard to put down. Coupled with Albuquerque’s style, it’s hard not to be torn between making it last and to continue reading.
Pearl easily stands out as my favorite character, and I love her role in this graphic novel. The darkness and the light are contrasted so well. I can’t wait to finish the rest of the series.
