Two subterranean showdowns escalate! Thousands of miles apart, rogue American vampires and the last remnants of the VMS chase the only known leads against the Beast’s looming plans for world domination.
As Skinner’s crew fight for their lives aboard the runaway Freedom Train in the Tongue-infested tunnels of the Southwest, Cal and Travis scavenge the tracks below Times Square for traces of the Beast’s terrifying challenger-but when they get too close to the monster for comfort, they’re blindsided by the mother of all unexpected twists.

    DC Comics News - Tony Farina Dec 9, 2020

    American Vampire 1976 #3 is action packed yet it does not rely exclusively on the action to keep readers engrossed. There is a mystery here. Snyder is a master storyteller and he is clearly taking us somewhere that ties it all together. It is a worthwhile ride. I can't wait to see what happens next. The cliff hangers have been spot on this whole series. Read Full Review

    Forces Of Geek - Lenny Schwartz Dec 17, 2020

    There is a huge twist in this issue. But it is well earned. Snyder puts a hell of lot of work into his scripts and this issue is no different. It is a great story. And Albuquerque does great on the art as well. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Dec 8, 2020

    American Vampire 1976 #3 is wall-to-wall action that pays homage to the best of 70s cinema. The story moves at breakneck speed, sometimes literally breaking a few necks in the process. The monsters are brutal and terrifying as each team's mission goes more than sideways, and the twist cliffhanger sets up more fun and games in the next issue. I was thoroughly entertained by this issue. Read Full Review

    Albuquerque does some brilliant work with the art in this issue. There is so much great imagery throughout that it is hard to decide on what scenes look better because everything looks so good. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Dec 8, 2020

    American Vampire 1976 has it all, from tense action to a fun adventure, visual horror, and a deep sense of human frailty. There's a rich history within its pages begging readers to do their due diligence and read the back issues, but at the same time, this narrative works on its own. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Dec 8, 2020

    I'm not sure how long Snyder and Albuquerque plan for this last act to be, but there is a lot of story yet to be told. Black Label reviving some Vertigo classics under this new brand has delivered some excellent dividends so far. Read Full Review

    Regular references to the past fail to charge the present moment with additional tension; it's time for this story to pick up the pace. Read Full Review
