    The leader of this council is a real piece of work who is telling them that he accepts their macabre gift. And that is when things really take off.The crew listens to the history of the Council.

Can they do it?The story is dark, fun, and exciting. Snyder is doing his best work scripting this series. The art is among the best work that Rafael Albuquerque has ever done. This is a fantastic book from cover to cover and I can't wait to see where we are going with this. Read Full Review

    American Vampire 1976 #5 is the penultimate issue of this series. It does a lot of explaining and gets the readers ready for the finale. I have faith in this team that the end of this series will be worth the ride. People reading this in the collected form will hardly notice the rambling as they will be ready for some explanation by this point. Read Full Review
