Small week for books, but not light on quality. Hot off the heels of a stellar start to Detective Comics, Scott Snyder hits another homer with his continuing tale of vampire debacles in American Vampire #9, which sees him wrap up his 2nd story arc about businessmen being wiped out because of their association with European vampires. The characterization is strong, most especially with Skinner Sweet, who is turning out to be one of the better villains written and drawn today. And speaking of drawing, I’ve run out of good things to say about what Rafael Albuquerque brings to the table every month to this series.

Gail Simone meanwhile keeps bring the ridiculous (in a good way) in Secret Six #28. I can’t even begin to tell you what’s going on in this series, but that doesn’t matter when you have such an eccentric cast of characters that Simone gets to play with. Catman is insane, Ragdoll needs a shrink, and Bane is….noble? Whatever, just pick up the darn book.
