A night on the town goes horribly wrong when Pearl and Henry have a run-in with some vicious bootleggers who aren't what they appear to be. Plus, a figure from the past comes back to haunt our heroes in the conclusion of this 2-part tale of booze, bullets and blood.

    To continue the baseball analogy, the perfect game continues into the 7th inning as Snyder & Co. retire the side in order on 2 strikeouts and a broken-bat dribbler to the first baseman. Seriously, if you aren't reading this series, what is wrong with you? I don't know that it's the “best” in American comics right now, but it is right up there in the top 5 with The Walking Dead and Scalped. Wonderful story and killer art. Read Full Review

    This issue of American Vampire has a lot to offer to a wide range of fan's interests. Sure, there are the elements of vampires and horror, but there is also a couple's struggle and a shattered friendship resulting in revenge. The comic book even has some parts that I found chuckling at despite the horrifying images. The book is simply strong in a lot of directions. Now that the book has been dropped to the $3 price point there really isn't much reason not to pick this book up and give it a try. Even if vampires aren't your thing I think this book is worth giving it a shot. I definitely recommend this book. Read Full Review

    Mateus Santoluco, again filling in for Rafael Albuquerque, does fantastic artwork. His work really fits perfectly with the designs Albuquerque created, and his layouts are and monsters are very strong. Great issue. Read Full Review

    In a comic where death surrounds both leading characters, the main thing you walk away with is a sense you know these girls more emotionally now. This issue caps a brutal origin of another vampiric villain who rivals Skinner Sweet for the ability to command a page. I cannot wait to see Hattie used to further effect in the future.
