This volume follows two stories: one written by Snyder and one written by King. Snyder's story is set in 1920's LA, we follow Pearl, a young woman who is turned into a vampire and sets out on a path of righteous revenge against the European Vampires who tortured and abused her. This story is paired with King's story, a western about Skinner Sweet, the original American Vampire-- a stronger, faster creature than any vampire ever seen before with rattlesnake fangs and powered by the sun.
From the Hardcover edition.
With Stephen King's name on it, this pairing of vampire stories is bound to catch some attention. Fortunately, Scott Snyder's story, set in 1920s LA, asserts its own pacing and comics narrative style, standing up admirably to King's storytelling prowess. Readers meet Pearl, a recent vampire convert, who is out for revenge. Readers also briefly meet Skinner Sweet, the first American vampire; Skinner is the star of King's story, set in the 19th-century wild, Wild West. Rafael Alburquerque provides atmospheric and captivating art that illuminates both stories.
