I thoroughly enjoyed this series. The artwork is great, and the two story lines that split up the 3 volumes keep you from tiring of one or the other. I think what made it so fascinating was the transition through the different eras of American history. The gunslinging west, the (still) West of Vegas in the 30's, and finally WWII and big cities. It gives a much wider perspective of these vampires, and the story only benefits from this. I would highly recommend American Vampire!
