The Age of the American Vampire

Ah American Vampire, if you aren't reading this series shame on you!  Anyone who wants to complain about the vampires being boring has read this series, it's amazing it takes all the best parts of history and combines them into an American nightmare.  Scott Snyder and Rafael Albuquerque really need to be commended because they have created what is probably one of the best villains to come out of comics in quite a while, you hate Skinner Sweet but I'll be damned if you don't love watching him do what he does best, because he's enjoys it so much.

The Inhumans

Okay, so if you haven't read Paul Jenkins and Jae Lee's The Inhumans, stop and go buy it. It's fantastic. The first read Mature Marvel book (and by "Mature" I don't mean swearing and nudity - I mean adult, introspective, and thought-provoking) and possibly their best. It's great.

Anyways, a quick tribute to it.

The Apocalypse Suite

So, a few years back, the lead singer of My Chemical Romance decided to make a comic. I avoided it, on purpose. I hate it when comic companies try to cash in on "celebrities" to sell comics. Well, it came out and I heard it was good. Like, really good. I held off. Each issue was met with acclaim. I finally gave in. And I'm glad I did.

The Umbrella Academy is one of the best, most original, creative, and fun comics in the last ten years. I loved both series (the original and the sequel entitled "Dallas"). I'm DYING for the third series, which still has no release date.

Anyways, my love letter to Gerald Way and Gabriel Ba's Umbrella Academy.
