    American Vampire 1976 #7 is a reminder that this story, this universe, and this concept is not really approaching an end if Scott and Rafael want it to. There is a well of stories waiting to be mined. This stands alone and works toward a bigger narrative. It is a hard to pull off, but they manage it beautifully. Now we wait for one more month.

    It is a nice standalone issue but also plays into the regular series a bunch, giving it a nice backstory that fills in some of the blanks nicely. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Apr 13, 2021

    A good story that finds some funny and whimsy amidst all the seriousness of the series itself. Great art that captures the mood of the story perfectly. Read Full Review

    Readers expecting a follow up to the books biggest shocker yet might be disappointed, but Snyder and his art collaborators craft an engaging interlude that ends far too quickly. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Apr 13, 2021

    American Vampire is a series that has always argued that our history is important, especially by way of vampires who live forever. This issue plays into three different times important to the characters and the larger narrative. For that, it's required reading and it might just bring out the fans who read this series in the past and haven't yet picked this up. If you've liked previous collections in this series but have been waiting to try American Vampire 1976, give this issue a read to remind yourself why the historical underpinnings of the series make it so good.

    But Why Tho? - Aaron Phillips Jan 1, 1970

    Overall, I think Root really outshone the other stories, and while Trunk left a little to be desired, I was left wanting more with Limb. There was absolutely something here though to be explored. Perhaps each of the stories would have been better suited to an individual tie-in one shot, but jammed together in one issue felt a little forced and did a disservice to what could have been offered. Ill say this though, Id recommend this on the Root story alone, Lotay brought a canon to a knife fight. Read Full Review

    There's little substance to be found here, only reminders of who these characters were briefly before this final confrontation with the beast buried in American soil. While issue #7 does collect some excellent pages, it ultimately reads like it's stalling for time. Read Full Review
