Actually it's more like Thursday comics this week since I had to wait until today to pick up my comics because of Labor Day.
Below are some of my favorites. I admit I am very partial to the last one!
American Vampire, #6
Art & cover: Rafael Albuquerque
"At a time when vampire stories engulf pop culture, this one's actually fresh and original." – ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY
It's Las Vegas circa 1935, and Skinner Sweet and our gal Pearl are about to learn the hard way that the bloodsuckers in Hollywood were nothing compared to what awaits them in Sin City.
In just a few short years, young police Chief Cash McCogan has watched his native city of Las Vegas go from cow-town to wild, glittering boom-town. And when the bodies of prominent businessmen start showing up drained of blood, Chief McCogan finds himself facing a threat much darker and deadlier than anything he could have imagined...and the only sure bet in town is that Skinner and Pearl are right in the thick of it!
So belly up to the bar and lay your chips on the table, because "Devil in the Sand," the next cycle of AMERICAN VAMPIRE, begins now!

When she accepted an invitation to the Circus of the Damned, vampire hunter Anita Blake knew she should keep an open mind. The shapeshifters, werewolves, and vampires under the big top? Business as usual. What she DIDN'T expect was to be stuck in a ring with a rampaging cobra the size of a truck. A cobra that used to be worshipped as god. A cobra that now very very much wants to make St. Louis' top animator its next meal.
