American Vampire: Survival of the Fittest #4

Written by Scott Snyder
Art by Sean Murphy

Scott Snyder is spending a lot of time fleshing out the diversity of vampires in his series.  Between this spin-off mini and the main title, we've seen a variety of species of vampire, each different in a variety of ways, and each tied to the region of their genesis.  Now, with this issue, we are beginning to get glimpses of the evolutionary history of the vamps as well.

The scientist that Vassals of the Morning Star agents Cash and Book were sent to retrieve from Nazi-occupied Romania has found three ancient vampires, who are as immobile as statues.  Of course, after a suitable pause for exposition, the Nazis who are pursuing our heroes make their appearance, and stuff gets all crazy again.

I've been enjoying this mini-series just fine, especially with Sean Murphy's art gracing its pages, but I think I prefer the main title.
