Cut to their core by an act of unspeakable betrayal, the team must think fast to regroup and recover-but with two of their lives hanging by a thread and a third taken captive to be sacrificed to the Beast, hope and practical solutions are in short supply. As a demon army prepares to rise from the earth on the eve of America’s bicentennial celebration, an old friend of the VMS steps in to assist and Gus gets a chance to rewrite his grim fate. In the end, their efforts will all hinge on Skinner Sweet’s final decision to either retreat and preserve what’s left of his limited life, or to face his fear of death and risk it all for Pearl and more

    There is a lot of story left to be told in only two more issues, but I have little doubt that the creative team will hit the landing. It's looking like a fitting ending to one of the modern greats of Vertigo. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally May 11, 2021

    Rafael Albuquerque delivers some beautifully detailed art throughout the issue. The characters look amazing and the creatures are scary. I love the sequence where the power of the Beast begins to rise and how ominous each panel looks. Read Full Review

    It's nice reading a comic that doesn't feel so predictable and where anything can and usually happens. I've no idea what's coming next issue and can't wait to see where Snyder and Albuquerque take the story next. Read Full Review

    American Vampire 1976 #8 feels like a middle. I hate to keep bringing this up, but at first, I though this was going to be six issues and I worried that it would feel overstuffed. Now, that I know it is a longer series, I worry that there is too much filler. There are some amazing twists and turns in this issue and I enjoyed being surprised, but I just don't know how I feel with how I got here. Does it need to be this long? I am simply not sure. I shall persist because it is compelling, it is beautiful and it is haunting. Read Full Review
