I tried this series because Snyder has impressed me in his Batman.
I bought and read volume 1 trade yesterday. I loved it. I liked it from the introduction where Stephen King said vampires should not be southern gentleman lover, skinny teenage girls, heroic. Skinner Sweet is stone cold evil bastard that was a perfect antidote for all the soft versions of vampires out there today. People has made them hero but this comic has made monsters again.
The art is the best i have ever seen of the artist. The coloring makes him look much better. The writing, two stories in one chapter was dense reads. I have not seen a volume that took me 2-3 hours to read before.
