It’s the beginning of the end. With their numbers cut and only hours left before the Earth cracks and humanity is conquered, the VMS has exhausted every smart defensive strategy. Their last hope is a marathon of increasingly desperate Hail Marys-culminating in a high-speed face-off with the Beast, freshly emerged from Hell in his terrifying final form. Before the score is settled, Travis taps into new powers to rally a surprising source of backup, Felicia takes control of the president’s nukes, Gus fights for freedom, and Skinner and Pearl rehearse an unthinkable farewell.

    This feels like a finale to a long-running creator-owned comic, and as the last remnant of the great old Vertigo lineup, it has a lot riding on it. I see no reason to doubt that Snyder and Albuquerque's finale next month will be spectacular. Read Full Review

    American Vampire 1976 seemed like a good idea at first, but maybe, we have learned that some stories can just end. Snyder is a great storyteller. There is nothing inherently bad happening here, I have just run out of steam. Each issue ends with a bang, which brings me back to the next issue. I want know what happens next and this ending, boy, is it a curb stomper, but I still think the series has, pardon the pun, grown long in the tooth. Looking forward to see how they tie it all up.
