Review - American Vampire Survival of the Fittest #2

American Vampire: Survival of the Fittest #2 by Vertigo/DC Comics. Written by Scott Snyder. Drawn by Sean Murphy. $2.99. Five Issue Limited Series.

Issue two starts with a bang as you see Dolly being confronted by Skinner Sweet in her home, only to find out it was a dream, a dream with her naked through most of it, but a dream.

We find our two heroes on the way to the Nazi castle to rescue the good Doctor. They are shot down but sill make it to the castle only to be confronted by the 77th Brigade. Let's just say that is bad, real bad.

Scott Snyder has really done well with his development of these two characters, both with the desire to rid themselves of the "taint" of Skinner Sweet. A cure they hope the good Doctor will have for them.

Sean Murphy's artwork is only rivaled by Rafael's dealing with these characters. He draws Dolly Book in a sexy deadly way that makes you want her, but are not sure if she will shoot you if you approach her. Cash on the other hand is made to be gritty, wise old man with a gun in your balls kind of guy. As well as all the other supporting cast, he really brings this limited series to life. The best part of this series is that you can enjoy it without having read the original series.
