Writer Scott Snyder (BATMAN, SWAMP THING) and artist Rafael Albuquerque
bring together even more threads to the complex tapestry that is the world of
AMERICAN VAMPIRE. When we last saw Pearl in the 1950s, she had lost her love
Henry in an attack on the vampire hunting organization, V.M.S., by a coven of
Hollywood vampires that nearly wiped the organization off the face of the
planet. Devastated and alone, Pearl is determained to leave California and
all its painful memories behind. When we meet Pearl again, it is in 1960s
Kansas, an era fraught with fear of nuclear war, angry demonstrations, and vast
social change. What has changed in the years since the V.M.S. attack and
where is Skinner Sweet? Collects AMERICAN VAMPIRE CYCLE TWO #1-5.
