Things get more complicated between Agents Preston and Sweet, but nothing that happened in their past can compare to what happens next!

Henry Preston is alive and well and recovering in a hospital bed in the underground headquarters of the Vassals of the Morning Star, and Pearl gets a little off-time to spend with her husband. Skinner Sweet has other plans –– to continue on his VMS mission and smoke out the remaining vamps that make up the California coven before he loses their scent. But Pearl believes he’s picked up the wrong scent and decides to go after Bloch and the bunch herself, only to discover that things have not been what they seem and that life has a way of twisting itself around full circle.

After the shocking, yet sexy final panel of American Vampire #30, part four of “The Black List” weighs in a little light during its opening pages, but very suddenly packs as potent a punch (and bite) by the final page, yielding yet another knockout issue by writer Scott Snyder and illustrator Rafael Albuquerque. From a tense standoff between Pearl and Skinner brimming with sexual and historical tension, to an all-out brawl of blades and bites that pits Pearl against Bloch and his minions, which paves the way to a darker truth about who’s really in charge of the coven, it’s a bittersweet treat to witness the past coming back around to haunt the present.
