Richard is trapped. What began as a routine undercover mission for his next paycheck has devolved into a nightmare of mortal consequences. Having disrupted Wynn's inner network and catapulted well past the point of no return, Richard fears he must sever himself from Sheila's original assignment in order to survive-but before he can implement their final plan, a revelation from Jennifer forces him to accept his ultimate function within Wynn's white nationalist empire.

    The art by Leandro Fernandez is great. I continue to love the use of shadow throughout this issue and what it emphasizes in each scene. Read Full Review

    The art by Leandro Fernandez is perfectly suited for the book. These two make a great creative team. It's so natural and reads easily. This has a meaningful ending for sure. Now to see where it gets from here. I'm excited at the possibilities of it all. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Mikkel Snyder Apr 17, 2019

    All in all, American Carnage is probably the most challenging book on my pull, but Hill and Fernandez are determined to share Richard Wright's arc, and while it's not the most cathartic piece of media, it's a tragically compelling tale. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Apr 17, 2019

    The masterful part of Bryan Hill and Leandro Gonzales' racial spy saga has been how it can weave tension out of any scene, and that's never clearer than with American Carnage #6, a fantastic issue where there's virtually no violence " but every scene and every line of dialogue is brimming with hate and suspense.

    I do not care for this issue. There are a couple of scenes that are okay but it's mostly dull and unpleasant. The art only makes it worse. Read Full Review

    Man that opening speech was so slimy and way too real.

    This is really getting good now. The development of all the characters is excellent, and my reservations about how Jennifer was being written are completely gone; far from being a plot cipher, over the last three issues she has been rounded out to be a complex character. Meanwhile, Wynn Morgam's opening speech is perfectly written to convey the flWed complexity of modern identity politics - and the bankruptcy of it, for it as harmful whichever group is utilizing it - while still making him a credible threat.

    The art too is perfect, and again by slight criticism of depictions of female characters no longer stands. The pencil work is excellent, while the colouring not only creates great atmosphere , but also underlines tone. The more

    I didn't like this as much as last issue mostly because of some of the dialogue. It just sounded very stilted. But I'm still interested and invested in this comic now.
