American Vampire #33


  • Words: Scott Snyder
  • Art: Rafael Albuquerque

  • Story Title: The Black List, Part Six of Six
  • Publisher: Vertigo/DC Comics

Pearl Preston’s life changes forever in this stunning denouement to “The Black List.”

Following the hostile invasion of VMS Headquarters by Hattie Hargrove and her minions, along with the sly turncoat Skinner Sweet, the coven queen’s next phase in her plot to completely devastate Pearl from the inside out is to transform her husband Henry into one of her Carpathian slaves. A tooth-and-claw clash ensues, pitting Pearl and Calvin against the darkest hatred burning deep within Hattie’s blackened heart, until this final confrontation leads these two former best friends to a precipice, and the cost may be far too dear for Pearl to ever return from.

American Vampire #33 brings “The Black List” to a crashing conclusion, tying up all the loose ends between Pearl Preston and Hattie Hargrove and paving the road for an upcoming epilogue before creators Scott Snyder and Rafael Albuquerque take a hiatus from American Vampire. For those of us who’ve been immersed in this stellar series from first issue to this, part six of “The Black List” reads as a catharsis, putting an end to an ambitious storyline that’s spanned decades from the Old West to the heyday of Hollywood. Surely this isn’t an ending as much as it is a new beginning for Pearl, and a new beginning for American Vampire.
