Money Talks. Val and Cassie are two women trying to make it in L.A…who just happened to grow up in a Kung Fu Orphanage, and now make their way in the ultra-competitive world of bounty hunting . They’ve watched each others’ backs since they could stand, and those bonds are tested daily as they navigate a city where loyalty usually only runs as deep as one’s bank account. Val and Cassie take the most dangerous jobs, and watch as others bask in the glory. But now, as their former mentor becomes L.A.’s most wanted fugitive, Val and Cassie will fight through L.A.’s glitziest and grimiest hoods as they learn just what sacrifices are necessary to make Hollywood dreams come true.

American Vampire Volume 1
From writers Scott Snyder and Stephen King, AMERICAN VAMPIRE introduces a new strain of vampire – a more vicious species – and traces the creatures’ bloodline through decades of American history.This first volume of the critically acclaimed series collects issues #1-5 and follows two stories: one written by Snyder and one written by King, both with art by future superstar Rafael Albuquerque. Snyder’s tale follows Pearl, a young woman living in 1920s Los Angeles, who is brutally turned into a vampire and sets out on a path of righteous revenge against the European monsters who tortured and abused her. And in King’s story set in the days of America’s Wild West, readers learn the origin of Skinner Sweet, the original American vampire – a stronger, faster creature than any vampire ever seen before.
