American Vampire: Lord of Nightmares #3The middle issue of the American Vampire summer mini series features some more awesome art by Dustin Nguyen, which is a huge draw to me (but I would read the series regardless) so I of course liked this issue. I honestly need to reread it a bit, because I got lost on some of Linden's dialogue, as i was distracted reading it, but if I have to say one thing concerns me, it's the pacing. Only two issues left, and I'm not sure how Snyder is going to handle the whole Dracula plot, let alone if Dracula is even going to fully awaken. We'll see though.

Underwater WelderIf you don't know, Underwater Welder is Jeff Lemire's latest graphic novel that Top Shelf put out. It's the story of a oil rig worker named Jack (I think?) who is about to become a father. Some super natural shit happens under the water during a welding job, and it begins to go into Jack's relationship with his own father. I'm not too too far into the book yet, only about 80 or so pages, but from what I've read, I really have enjoyed it so far. I'll be honest though, I'm not the biggest fan of Jeff Lemire's artwork, but for the story, it certainly fits. It has great visual storytelling, and I'm starting to warm up to Lemire's illustrations.
EDIT: I wrote this on Thursday afternoon, after the fact, I continued reading and just finished up till the end of Witchblade vol. 8, the end of the "War of the Witchblade" arcs, and man... I fucking love this title. Gonna take a break from it... until I get home, probably. I'm now looking at the Angelus series, and contemplating going back through Hester's Darkness run... in so deep. After reading this, I've got to say, Tim Seeley's run on the title has much more to live up to in my mind now.
