With the help of the Council of Firsts, Skinner’s team has learned the secret sacrifice required to obtain the Blood of Light-their only hope of stopping the Beast from destroying humanity and conquering the world. Finally within reach of the remedy, the crew sends one of its own on the grueling last leg of the mission-but a devastating betrayal and an unwelcome revelation about Skinner’s quest for immortality could sabotage the expedition.

    I'd love to break this issue down further, but it's far too spoiler-y and it's best to go in knowing as little as possible. Snyder and Albuquerque deliver big time with this one ensuring that readers are in for some shocks while eagerly awaiting the next issue. Read Full Review

    Albuquerque delivers some impressive art throughout this issue. Not only are there great character moments, but there are some visually scary moments to be had. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Mar 9, 2021

    Like a good episode of Lost, this issue sets up quite a cliffhanger that'll have you wondering how our heroes escape death and turn the tide. This is the midway point of a planned twelve-issue series and it's a good reminder it's always darkest before the dawn. American Vampire 1976 continues to be the action-adventure series your inner 80s kid always wanted. Read Full Review

    American Vampire 1976 #6 is damn good. I thought this was going to be the final issue and I was worried it all couldn't be wrapped up. I am happy to admit I was wrong about that and we still have three more issues to get to the bottom of things. That is good for us because Skinner deserves a few more books before we discover his fate and we all want to spend more time living in Albuquerque's world. It is scary, but gorgeous place to live.

    There's no knowing where the story goes from here or who, if anyone, might make it to the end in one piece. Yet the excitement detonated in the final pages of American Vampire 1976 #6 calls back to the series' highest highs; it's time to wrap up this modern (and maybe final) Vertigo classic with a bang.
