A fantastic story that takes the over used vampire mythos and makes it fun scary and original. This is a must own title.

This is a very good comic book novel. It keeps you enthralled until the very last page and keeps you wanting more. Do yourself a favor and purchase. You will not be sorry.

The vampire story has been told to death, no pun intended. That’s what makes this book so amazing. Scott Snyder, Stephen King, and Rafael Albuquerque give readers an inventive new look at the genre involving American history. The mythos created here is interesting and new. The entangled plotline from different time periods blends perfectly. We are given different shades of good and evil with all that lies between. A huge part of this is the art. It perfectly fits the story and the era is easily recognized and the characters are distinguishable. Overall, this is a book that I look forward to reading until completion. Great book!

Great tale of revenge and blood that weaves between two time periods with the central character alive and well in both. Smart dialogue and characters. Got this for my birthday and devoured it in two days. Illustrations are off the hook, FANTASTIC!
