    Horror Talk - James Ferguson Mar 1, 2017

    Nailbiter has been an amazing ride and a helluva horror comic. It ends just as strong as it begins, with a tense, terrifying story and gorgeous, well-detailed artwork. The characters will stick with you for some time. This is the kind of comic that you'll finish and want to immediately go back and re-read from the beginning to see with a new set of eyes. It's just so damn good. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze Mar 1, 2017

    This is how you do horror. I can't believe it has really been three years, but it was worth it to see this through to the end because not once did Nailbiter feel like every other horror story on shelves. They thought outside the box to always keep us on our toes. Nailbiter #30 wrapped everything up so well even if some might say that the very last scene could have been cut. Otherwise perfection.

    AiPT! - Nick Nafpliotis Feb 28, 2017

    Were there a few things I wish the creative team had delved into a bit more? Of course. But those lingering questions felt much more tantalizing than frustrating. I know that sounds paradoxical (or just plain stupid), but when a mythology-laden series like this one makes good on answering its biggest question (along with a slew of other great reveals), they've earned the right to keep a little mystery in their back pockets in the case the series ever returns"and let's hope it does, too. As good as the overall narrative was, Nailbiter's strength was in its fantastic characters. The ones who managed to survive the series provided us with one hell of a good story"and they just might one day have a little more to tell. Read Full Review

    An ending that suits the kind of story that was told from the start. I'll miss "Nailbiter" dearly. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Erik Gonzalez Mar 5, 2017

    This has been a fresh, innovative series because it had elements that ranged from tackling dark, taboo themes, to having Brian Michael Bendis be a character, to the depiction of violence and death. Everyone involved should be very proud of their work on Nailbiter. Issue #30, in particular, nicely encapsulates all that makes this Image title work like a well-bloodied machine. Obviously, dont jump delve into this comic on its last issue; pick up the trades and become enthralled with the macabre world that is Nailbiter. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Mar 4, 2017

    How you feel about the conclusion will ultimately come down to how revelatory you expected the answers to the series' biggest mysteries be. We do get answers and we do get nice resolution with our main characters, but I found a lot of the answers to be of little value compared to the lengths of convolution that were wrapped up in the overall series. In the end I was happy with what we got but a little let down by the ultimate mystery, but as the story points out itself the mystery wasn't very big to begin with. Read Full Review
