A new storyline begins! A tragic mistake in Richard's past left an innocent child dead, and it's a devastating trauma from which he's never recovered. Determined not to let it happen again, he risks everything-including his undercover status-on a mission to rescue a drug-addicted young man in way over his head from the white nationalist narcotics trade.

    This is a fantastic and nuanced series, one that combines gritty criminal drama with a hard look at the worst parts of society. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally May 15, 2019

    Leandro Fernandez delivers amazing art in this issue. One of my favorite tools that Fernandez employs is constantly keeping Rick bathed in shadow. It adds to the seriousness of his situation as well as making him almost detached from the people around him. Read Full Review

    The whole series thrills month in and month out. I'm at the edge of my seat constantly while reading this. The art is damn good too. I can't wait to see where this new issue goes. It's really an amazingly well put together comic book. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Mikkel Snyder May 15, 2019

    American Carnage #7 marks when the series becomes even greyer. With all the set up established and all the pieces in motion on several stages, American Carnages continues to flourish. Hill and Fernandez have coded very distinct storytelling mechanics into the DNA of the series, and it remains as difficult as ready as ever, but the end product is something truly engrossing.

    With two issues to go, American Carnage has yet to stop surprising me " it's a brilliantly tense neo-noir that has its finger on the pulse of racial issues without simplifying its narrative into cartoonish evil. Its Nazis are human, and that's what makes them such great villains. Read Full Review

    The start of a new story sees a deeper examination into one of the series most interesting characters. Great atmosphere leaves you wondering who to trust. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Kevin Rossi May 17, 2019

    This issue is mostly filler and setting up for the next issue. That being said, the art and writing work so well together that it doesnt matter. American Carnage hasn't let me down yet. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Sean Blumenshine May 17, 2019

    I did not enjoy this issue that much. Focusing on the twisted relationship between Richard and Jennifer helps because they're a little interesting. But the art doesn't appeal to me at all. And I have no investment in Sheila at all. The series feels padded out and dull. Read Full Review
