Comics Briefly: American Vampire #23, Avatar: The Last Airbender: The Promise, Part One

Wednesday, January 25, 2012

Only two buys today, and they are both quite good and quite different. Both new in stores on 1/25/12

American Vampire #23 (Death Race Part Two)
Writer: Scott Snyder, Artist: Rafael Albuquerque, Colors: Dave McCaig

A good follow up to last issue, this issue continues to intercut the 'present' car chase with more pieces of backstory and more recent history. The flow works well; everything slots together quite nicely, while keeping the tension high. No surprise on the last-page reveal, despite the events of Ghost War. Travis is a great new character, and I'm excited to get the rest of his story soon.

Avatar: The Last Airbender: The Promise, Part One
This is 75 pages long, pretty much a graphic novel. And it is AMAZING. It's getting its own post tomorrow.
