American Vampire 31 Review – Scott Snyder and Rafael Albuquerque

American Vampire 31 Review. Scott Snyder. Rafael Albuquerque. Vertigo Comics. American Vampire 31 Review Short Version: American Vampire 31 picks up with Pearl and Henry reunited after Pearl’s indiscretion not so long ago. American Vampire 31 is a nicely balanced issue, with a lot of character building for Pearl and Henry, some exposition, and then a big reveal at the end. Snyder never seems to run out of big reveals, as Pearl confronts the leader of the California coven.

American Vampire 31 Review

In The Blacklist Part 4, things really pick up. Well, we start with a nice bit of looking back with Pearl and Henry. Their interactions are nicely written, with a playful tone, but it’s made all the more uncomfortable for the reader (at least for me) knowing about Pearl’s actions. In any case, Pearl learns of a possible location for the California Coven’s leader and (spoiler) can’t resist the need to go seek her revenge in the middle of the desert. Still, things aren’t quite what they appear when Pearl confronts the coven, with a big reveal at the end of American Vampire 31 that should kick things into high gear in the coming issues. I really enjoyed the contrast between the relationship between Pearl and Henry and her relationship with Skinner, which are shown one-after-the-other. It’s not a particularly action-heavy issue, but we’ve had a lot of fighting in the recent issue and American Vampire 31 opts for a nice balance of character building, action, and the huge reveals that makes for a very satisfying issue.
