Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "This volume generously collects two discrete story arcs set during WWII. In the main thread, drawn with plenty of splattering viscera by series regular Albuquerque, a band of vampire hunters discover and are decimated by a new breed of bloodsuckers on a Japanese island. Antihero Skinner Sweet joins in on the fun but may have bitten off more than his slavering jaws can chew. Murphy draws the supplementary story, which takes place in the war's other arena, as the Nazis hoard a scientist with the cure for vampirism. Good, gory wartime horror on a level with Mike Mignola's B.P.R.D.: 1946 (2008).--Chipman, Ian Copyright 2010 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "A bloody reinterpretation of American history animates this ultraviolent horror comic. The wide-open gambling and prostitution that accompany construction of Boulder Dam in 1936 are corrupting the town of Las Vegas, Nev.; feeding on human degradation-and blood-is a swarm of vampires, one of the many rival varieties that pass undetected in the transient population of the unsettled West. One local lawman who just wants to protect the innocent finds his comforting certainties stripped away as an outlaw vampire exults in pure wildness. Meanwhile, a female vampire tries to maintain a loving domestic relationship with her mortal husband when she's not ripping the heads off their enemies. Although Stephen King contributed to the early installments of this saga, Snyder now carries the action along with gusto. Albuquerque (in the first four chapters) and Santolouco (last two) deliver art that's appropriately raw and brutal. Exploring how dreams and temptations have shaped America, this series offers thoughtful content alongside the grotesque shape-shifting and spurting gore. (May) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
