Book Review – American Vampire, Volume 7 [American Vampire series]

The seventh American Vampire installment takes a dark turn as a new villain, the Gray Trader, is introduced. This volume is definitely setup for future plotline rather than a complete story arc, leaving me looking for more at the end–not a bad thing, per se, but that’s the way graphic novels go sometimes. Pearl’s story continues to be an excellent parallel to Skinner Sweet’s. The presentation of Cold War America was interesting, and a good bonus story rewards readers. The artwork is both vibrant and malevolent, like a crisp nightmare that etches itself in the brain.
