The Art Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter by Seth Grahame-Smith
♦ ♦ ♦ ♦ ♦
I had read the book Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter and it was so interesting to me. I like it when books explore the other side of famous people; the side that we don’t see all the time. So this version of Abraham Lincoln, the man who freed the slaves and was a major influence on the course of US history.
This isn’t truly a graphic novel, but it is set up in a graphic novel fashion. Here, we see the artwork and storyboarding for the Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter movie that came out a few years ago. And it told the story from beginning to end, but from the point of view of the “Adam,” a powerful and ancient vampire that rules/guides the American South during the Civil War.
As we see how dangerous Abraham Lincoln becomes through Adam’s eyes, we see that in this version of him, what he’s doing not only for himself but for the North, we can see why he would be absolutely terrifying! A man who knows how to not only find, but absolutely kill vampires, Adam does what he can to pull Mr. Lincoln to his side, but when that doesn’t work, Adam does what he can to kill him.
Now, I haven’t seen the movie. I’m not sure I want to see the movie, but I do know that the book was great for me, so when I saw this on sale I had to grab it. And I love the way it was set up, the movement and the fury of the vampires against the works of Mr. Lincoln. All in all, this was an enjoyable graphic novel.
