American Vampire (Vol #3) Comic Book Review

This volume of the critically-acclaimed AMERICAN VAMPIRE follows the star of AV Volumes 1 and 2, Pearl, and her husband Henry, as he is recruited by a mysterious group of vampire hunters, off to World War II Japan to find a new breed of blood sucker. But what does the notorious vampire Skinner Sweet have to do with it?

Eh, I feel like this series is steadily getting worse. This book is two separate stories because reasons. The main reason being that the author couldn't think of anything interesting for our characters to do during FREAKING WORLD WAR TWO. Talk about an off day.

The stories both suffer from the same problems - cliched characters, a poor art style and minimal plot. Pearl's boyfriend is on some sort of secret war mission that they've managed to shoehorn Skinner into, while generic white chick and Cash go and fight Nazi vampires.

I really struggled with the art style, which has been getting worse through the volumes. Now I can't tell Cash and Skinner apart while Pearl looks pretty much identical to every woman in it, even the older ones.

There's not much good I can say about this volume that I'll quickly forget. I just hope that the next volume is much, much better.
