    Scott Snyder and Rafael Albuquerque wrap up 'The Blacklist.' It's been a heavy arc with twists and turns. You'll find yourself not knowing what might happen on the next page and you'll definitely want to savor each one. AMERICAN VAMPIRE is more than just a comic about vampires. You'll want to read this because we get great stories each month. Albuquerque's art adds a special taste to the tale and you'll appreciate each scene. Dave McCaig's colors wrap up the entire package with a brilliant and lovely bow. I can't imagine what's coming up next. I actually don't want to know right now. I just want to take in what happened this issue and recuperate from the excitement and emotion. Read Full Review

    Maybe I am digging Scott Snyders writing to much but I feel like at this point he can do no wrong. Also who can really complain about Rafael Albuquerque beautiful panels?!?! Read Full Review

    Snyder and Albuquerque have achieved true greatness here in an installment of a series full of standout issues. This one might rank as the best simply for its tear-jerking and violent payoff to the 32 issues that came before it. Read Full Review

    A very fitting end to the first half of the AV story. I'm looking forward to the coda in issue #34. Read Full Review

    During the hiatus, I think I might try a marathon readthrough of all 33 issues, see how this saga reads as a whole. And if you dont read American Vampire, if you say youre a Scott Snyder fan but just stick to his Batman, now is the time to amend that and play catch-up. I dont know what lies ahead for this cracking series. But I cant wait to find out. Read Full Review

    This chapter is ending, which enhances the feeling that this is simply the conclusion of the first movie. Now all we have to do is wait for the next. At least we can re-read and re-re-read the books. Snyder and Albuquerque have supplied us with a lot of great stories and "American Vampire" #33 can certainly take a place among the best of the best. Where Pearl Jones goes from here remains to be seen, but like Calvin Poole, I'll be waiting for that goodbye call. Read Full Review

    PopMatters - Michael D. Stewart Dec 2, 2012

    There is a point when you realize that despite Snyder's work to bring out the personal fear in horror narratives, that what frightens us is a way to get at character driven stories, his true deep seeded intent is to tell the American story he's always relished in, to move from his mind the historical personification of monsters as the drivers of progress. This is the point where Snyder the person and Snyder the storyteller merge. Much as the monsters of American Vampire merge with our history. As with all of history, we have to leave some behind.

    American Vampire is Skinner Sweet's story, but Pearl has definitely been a character of prominence throughout this book. She is a great character and this ending is a good one, but I do hope there is more to her story than what we see here. This is definitely one of the best books to read month in and month out and it will be sorely missed after it goes on hiatus after next issue. Read Full Review
