In the world of vampire comic books, there are really only two players right now. You've got Steve Niles' "30 Days of Night" series and Scott Snyder's "American Vampire." Both are the antithesis of what movies and novels are feeding us when it comes to the undead bloodsuckers. The nocturnal creatures in Niles' and Snyder's worlds don't sparkle in the sun and remain beautiful when they change into their ravenous forms. "American Vampire Volume 5" shows Snyder is still at the top of his gory and gratifying game.
