Agents Hobbes and Book’s journey takes a strange twist while the Russians realize a frightening truth about who’s really in control, in both nightmare and reality.

Traveling through Germany, Agents Hobbes and Book journey closer to Dracula, who has apparently become so strong he’s able to use his mind control powers to entrance humans as well as vampires. It’s with this in mind that the King of the Undead advances another step closer to conquering the world, beginning with the Soviets. But to battle back the forces of primeval darkness, our heroic pair of VMS agents may acquire some very powerful allies in their fight to save the entire world, if they can get through the introduction stage alive.

American Vampire: Lord of Nightmares #3 casts a spell over its readers in much the same way Dracula does with his minions –– unexpected and sudden. Writer Scott Snyder proves yet again that he is a king in the court of story, blending a deceivingly simple conversation between our heroes about their adversary with breathtaking illustrations by Dustin Nguyen depicting a pack of wolves hunting and taking down a deer in the snow-covered mountains of Germany. Storytelling like this adds further depth and understanding to just what our heroes are getting themselves into, an animalistic world of hunt or be hunted, kill or be killed.
