3 stars. This volume, composed of several short stories set in the American Vampire universe, was entertaining–nothing more, nothing less. The stories don’t seem to advance the main plotlines greatly, offering glimpses at capsule events and depth to some minor characters. The artwork varied greatly with the guest illustrators. The best of the stories was the Hattie Hargrove one, with a delightfully chilly ending. My least favorite was Bleeding Kansas; its artwork seemed jarringly out of place with the rest of the volume and its story was very disconnected from the series. Largely filler (but decent filler) until the next volume is published, I’m afraid.
