Présentation de l'éditeur

This volume follows two stories: one written by Scott Snyder and one written by legendary horror writer Stephen King. In Snyder's story set in 1920s LA, we follow Pearl, a young woman who is turned into a vampire and sets out on a path of righteous revenge against the European vampires who tortured and abused her. This story is paired with King's story, a western about Skinner Sweet, the original American Vampire—a stronger, faster creature than any vampire ever seen before.

Biographie de l'auteur

Scott Snyder has been published in Zoetrope, Tin House, One-Story, Epoch, Small Spiral Notebook, and other journals. He teaches at Columbia University and Sarah Lawrence University and lives in New York with his wife, Jeanie, and his son, Jack Presley. He's currently at work on a novel for the Dial Press.

Stephen King is the bestselling author of The Stand, The Shining, The Dark Tower books and multitudes of other works, most recently Under the Dome. AMERICAN VAMPIRE marks Stephen King's debut with Vertigo/DC Comics; it is the first comic book writing he's done, based on original material, as opposed to existing characters.

I like my vampire mythology straight, not mixed. This is one of the mixes that I can put up with. No sparkles here and the (to me) required canines are present in spades. Never liked the idea of Vampires frying in the sun, anyway; There are even traces of UV in moonlight, dig? A good read

5.0 étoiles sur 5 An Excellent Tale of Horror 10 octobre 2010
Par Amanda Jade - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
Volume 1 of American Vampire is set in two time periods - it begins with Scott Snyder's story, set in 1920s. We meet Pearl Jones, a struggling actress hoping to make it big in Hollywood. The unfortunate and naive Pearl is brutally attacked and left for dead, that is, until Skinner Sweat steps in and offers her the chance to wreak vengeance on those that ruined her life.

The second half of the tale, told by Stephen King, contains the gruesome origins of the wicked Skinner Sweet. We're taken back to the Wild West in the 1880s, where we learn about Skinner's criminal past as a human and the powerful vampire he later becomes. And this American vampire isn't any ordinary bloodsucker, he's evolved and is bigger and badder than any of the old ones could have imagined.
Artist Rafael Albuquerque captures the two different time periods perfectly. In the first half, the pages are full of old-school Hollywood glam and class. When it came to depicting King's story, Albuquerque was dead on, making the panels grungier and perfectly Western. Same artist, but two unique and flawless styles. His artwork was one thing that impressed me the most.

Overall, American Vampire: Vol. 1 was awesome. You've got a real badass horror story full of deadly and terrorizing vampires, which is exactly what this vampire-flooded world needs nowadays. Horror fans will love the macabre artwork and narrative, and others will simply love the refreshing change in vampire story-telling (you have to admit that the weak and whiny vampires get real old real fast). I definitely recommend this graphic novel to anyone looking for a classic horror story.

Not going into the how amazing this comic is, plenty of others have done a fantastic job of that already. I just wanted to comment on the high quality of the Kindle Fire Ed. Unlike many of the other "optimized for Fire" editions on Amazon, this one fills the screen with high quality images that even make the large files on comixology look less than crisp.

For the most part I've avoided purchasing any digital comics on Amazon, but if more quality products like this can be released I may spend a little less $ at comixology. Give us the next volumes already!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 "Stone killers who never get enough of that tasty Type-A" 20 juin 2011
Par Jared Castle - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
Meet Skinner Sweet, the candy-chomping, former Wild West outlaw who traded his six-shooters for fangs and immortality to become antihero of the vampire genre.

Scott Snyder and Stephen King split the storytelling duties in this graphic novel, originally published as the first five issues of the Vertigo series. Artist Rafael Albuquerque adequately captures 1920's LA and 1880's Old West. He delivers a less murky vision of vampires than Ben Templesmith's red-smeared approach in 30 Days of Night. The first dozen pages of American Vampire are deliciously restrained - a buildup that pays off when Albuquerque unleashes vampires in full-page panels.

The story centers on two characters, the aforementioned outlaw Skinner Sweet, and aspiring actress Pearl Jones, who is left for dead in the desert outside Los Angeles in 1925. Both become vampires not by their own choosing but their transformation separates them from the older, European bloodsuckers. Skinner and Pearl's immunity to sunlight is just one of many differences (I don't want to spoil the others).

King's introduction gets to the bloody heart of why American Vampire rises above the undead deluge.

"Here's what vampires shouldn't be: pallid detectives who drink Bloody Marys and only work at night; lovelorn southern gentlemen; anorexic teenage girls; boy-toys with big dewy eyes.

What should they be?

Killers, honey. Stone killers who never get enough of that tasty Type-A. Bad boys and girls. Hunters. In other words, Midnight America. Red, white and blue. Accent on the red."

In summary, I finished this graphic novel and immediately ordered American Vampire Vol. 2. So far, it is a great, gory ride and a welcome antidote to the Twilight plague.

Rating: Five stars.

On a side note, I reviewed Neil Gaiman's The Best American Comics 2010 and can assure you there isn't a single entry in that collection as good a read as Snyder's and King's story here. American Vampire should appear in the 2011 edition; its absence would be evidence enough to shelve that collection.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Film and vampires 14 juin 2010

Six words which will make you want to read this: "Original Stephen King comic. With VAMPIRES."

In actuality, this is a two-part comic -- one part is by King, while the other is by a guy I had never heard of named Scott Snyder. But both halves of "American Vampire #1" are united by a common theme -- vintage Americana is mingled with some gruesome, bloodthirsty vampires, whether it's during the glitzy Roaring Twenties or the dusty Wild West. And it's AWESOME.

Snyder follows a pair of young starlets named Pearl and Hattie, who are working as extras during the early days of cinema. Pearl strikes up a friendship with a hobo who is hanging around their swimming pool -- and who warns her not to go to a party thrown by a film producer. Pearl soon realizes that she should have listened...

King's story goes further back in time to the late 1800s, and shows us the original "American Vampire" -- a bunch of outlaws are holding up a train to free the infamous Skinner Sweet, leading to a devastating crash. But the outlaws have little idea of what is lurking in the wreckage, and what wants some very personal revenge on them.

"American Vampire" is a pretty unique kind of comic book -- two brilliant writers (one famous and one unknown) writing two intertwined story arcs about vampires from long ago. Even better, both King and Snyder manage to do something unique and special with the vampire mythos that doesn't involve pale, wangsty aristocrats.

And while the stories are closely connected, King and Snyder have very distinct styles. King's is faster, brasher and earthier, adding sudden splatters of horror to a seemingly simple Wild West story; Snyder's is a slower, more refined story that only hints at the horrors lurking nearby, until the last few pages. And there's a clever undercurrent to his story -- predatory Hollywood bloodsuckers as REAL bloodsuckers? Not bad.

Snyder also has a knack for creating likable characters -- Pearl is a thoroughly likable protagonist, a strong young lady with dreams of fame who still suffers from doubts and homesickness. King's characters are less endearing, but no less vibrant -- his depiction of Skinner is of a ruthless, grinning cowboy covered in dust and stubble.

And Rafael Albuquerque is well suited to both stories -- he relies heavily on shadows, black profiles and dark figures, but also suffuses the daytime parts with strong desert light. He also does some brilliant things with color -- our first glimpse of the vampires takes place in a room filled with bloody background, and the train battles take place against a slow-burning sky that fades into the color of flames.

"American Vampire 1" is an excellent start to a promising new series -- and Snyder and King are quite a formidable storytelling team. Vibrant, creepy and wonderfully bloody.

But both halves of "American Vampire Volume 1" are united by a common theme -- vintage Americana is mingled with some gruesome, bloodthirsty vampires, in the 1920s and the Wild West. And it is AWESOME.

Snyder follows a young starlet named Pearl, who is invited to a party thrown by a film producer. The next day, she is found covered in bites in the desert and dying of blood loss. But then she wakes up to find vampiric cowboy Skinner Sweet next to her, and he informs her that she's now a vampire.

But she's not the same kind of vampire as the ones who attacked her -- like him, she's a newly evolved "American vampire" with claws, monstrous teeth and immunity to the sun. Now Pearl is out for revenge against the "old-style" vampires who killed her -- and along with her new love interest Henry, she's got some bloody revenge, treachery and a brewing war to deal with.

King's story goes further back in time to the late 1800s, and shows us the original "American Vampire" -- the infamous Skinner Sweet, an outlaw who runs afoul of a vampire in the desert. When a flood washes out the town where he's buried, the newly undead Sweet returns to the world... and he's more dangerous than ever before.

"American Vampire" is a pretty unique kind of comic book -- two brilliant writers (one famous and one unknown) writing two intertwined story arcs about vampires from long ago.

Not bad.

Snyder also has a knack for creating likable characters -- Pearl is a thoroughly likable protagonist, a strong young lady who has to make the best of being transformed into a bloodsucker. King's characters are less endearing, but no less vibrant -- his depiction of Skinner is of a ruthless, grinning cowboy covered in dust and stubble ("I want candy!").

And Rafael Albuquerque is well suited to both stories -- he relies heavily on shadows, black profiles and dark figures, but also suffuses the daytime parts with strong desert light. He also does some brilliant things with color -- our first glimpse of the vampires takes place in a room filled with bloody background, and the train battles take place against a slow-burning sky that fades into the color of flames.
