"It's 1976, and this is the concluding chapter of the Eisner Award-winning American Vampire! The series that launched the careers of superstars Scott Snyder and Rafael Albuquerque returns for the closing chapter of the legacy of American Vampire. America is broken. Trust between the government and the American public has crumbled. Paranoia reigns supreme. Skinner Sweet has exhausted all efforts to regain his lost immortality. With his powers and purpose gone, he is now determined to go... out with a bang. At a seedy motorcycle rally in the desert where he's closer than ever to his death wish, Pearl Jones and a shocking partner track him down for one last, desperate mission. The force known as the Gray Trader and its minions are tunneling through the bowels of the world to unleash hell on Earth-just in time for America's bicentennial. With catastrophe looming, it's up to Skinner and Pearl to reconcile and change the course of history-or die trying."--

A living legend's last ride.It's 1976, and America is doomed. Trust between the government and the American public has crumbled, paranoia reigns, and the devil himself is about to unleash hell on Earth—just in time for the nation's bicentennial.American Vampire Skinner Sweet isn’t doing so hot himself. A decade after his last heroic efforts robbed him of immortality, he’s done fighting and determined to go out with a bang—in fact, he’s closer than ever to his death wish when his estranged protégée, Pearl Preston, wields a tempting secret to recruit him for one final mission: the weapon they need to retrieve in order to save the world is also the last hope of restoring Skinner’s powers. But with catastrophe looming and redemption on the line, Skinner, Pearl, and their old teammates will need to put the past behind them before they can change the course of history. Creators SCOTT SNYDER and RAFAEL ALBUQUERQUE reunite alongside FRANCESCO FRANCAVILLA, TULA LOTAY, and RICARDO LÓPEZ ORTIZ for American Vampire 1976, collecting all 12 issues of the concluding sequel to the Eisner Award-winning American Vampire.
