Damn! Albuquerque has never looked better. Probably the best I’ve seen of his work.

If you follow American Vampire, you don’t really need my review. You already know this is a REALLY good read every issue. Part 5 of the Blacklist was a true page-turner.

Story: 5 - Excellent
Art: 5 - Excellent


  1. Artwork 5. I couldnt agree with you more. Story 3.5…I think it was 4 pages of where Hattie’s been and most of it we already knew. That, plus the banter, the story just didn’t really move like most AV issues move. Then the whole storming the (I don’t want to spoil it) had me thinking, “No, Batman is the other book you write!” (Reminded me way too much of Nite of Owls when they storm Wayne Manor). A great book as always, and it looks like, with the developments on the last couple pages, we are in for a very interesting “departure.” I’m both sad and excited. Too bad this book didn’t get voted best comic, because its definitely the one I look forward to each and every month.

  2. I see your points…I didn’t start reading AV till about 6 issues for me it was a nice catch up. And I see the Batman similarity now, but not when I read it.

  3. For new readers, I could definitely see it working well, and the spider movie scene was new, and I thought smart and clever. If you haven’t read the first arc I would definitely recommend it! And if you want to see more of Vampire Hattie in action, the 2 (3?) issue arc just after Las Vegas is really good. It’s 2 issues of awesomeness drawn by Albuquerque. It might be in the second collection, not sure. Hope I didn’t rain on the parade, its been my favorite monthly for awhile now and I just wanted to throw my 2 cents in. Happy to hear of other people enjoying the book. Cheers.

  4. THanks for the info.
