    Comic Bastards - Samantha Roehrig Aug 6, 2014

    This has been my favorite issue of the series, and I don't exactly know why. I think the story just played out well while being in the graveyard. As more answers are unfolding, it is clear that new ones are popping up with each ending of Nailbiter. Although Finch's discovering is disturbing, I think Warren's is more of a mystery. Plus to see how it all ties in with solving Buckaroo Butchers will be a task, but one that will no doubt entertain me. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - David Pepose Aug 5, 2014

    Regardless, this creepy mystery has already gone far beyond its title character - and that's what makes Nailbiter so good. The town of Buckaroo has its own mysteries, mysteries that Williamson is slowly starting to uncover. It feels like there's one big twist coming around the corner, and that's what any good thriller should bring to the table. Read Full Review

    Bloody Disgusting - Zac Thompson Aug 6, 2014

    Joshua Williamson and Mike Henderson hit it out of the park again with 'Nailbiter' #4. The two work in perfect rhythm, delivering a damn fun read. Remember to buckle your ass down for the final page, or it might just be blown off. The seeds of this epic are beginning to sprout and take shape into the most elegant and horrific flowers you've ever seen. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Aaron Duran Aug 6, 2014

    The best books work when they take the expected and turn it on its ear. Yet still managing to do so without breaking the line of believability. Nailbiter #4 does so with such ease that I can say with confidence that we are no longer in the hands of stable individuals. And when you're hanging out in a town like Buckaroo, Ore., that's exactly who you want guiding you. Nailbiter is yet another hit in Image's growing catalog. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Samantha Cross Aug 7, 2014

    We're getting close to the end of the first arc and the evenly paced, mood setting build up of the first three issues allows for Joshua Williamson and Mike Henderson to deliver one hell of a cliffhanger. Read Full Review

    Coming Up Comics - David Melton Aug 5, 2014

    I would tell you to go get this, but Nailbiter is doing very well. If you aren't on board already, go get the first three issues, or wait until the TPB comes out to catch up on everyone's new favorite serial killer. Read Full Review

    Front Towards Gamer - Lido Aug 7, 2014

    Nailbiter was already an intensely enjoyable comic that pulled from a plethora of sources I counted amongst my favorites like Twin Peaks or Millennium but with this issue it's taken a broad leap towards being more than just a fun junky high concept serial killer story to being actually about something and I couldn't be happier. The comedy and horror elements gel together better than ever, the new focus on the town is a welcome addition that never drags down the ongoing plot, and the combination of societal commentary with slasher mystery affectations is brilliant and delicious, highly recommended.

    ComicBuzz - Ellen Aug 7, 2014

    The wheels are beginning to move forward in Nailbiter all the while keeping the reader in a tense state of unknowing. This is the best kind of thriller that defies expectations and keeps us guessing. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jeff Lake Aug 7, 2014

    Comics: The Gathering - F.D. White Aug 6, 2014

    With even more Silence of the Lambs references, Nailbiter #4 continues to impress, shock, and elicit a few dark chuckles. If you've been looking for a “nailbiting” and suspenseful horror book then pick this up. Read Full Review

    Capeless Crusader - Cody Mudge Aug 5, 2014

    Without a doubt Williamson and Henderson have a great mystery here. They've shown us enough to let us in on the chase but not so much that answers are obvious. This steady flow of answers and questions is a precarious one but so far this team has done an amazing job of keeping readers absorbed. It would have been nice to see a bit more of Nailbiter this issue, as he still seems to be an under-utilized character given he's the namesake of the entire series. But we're given enough story here to distract us from his absence. Read Full Review

    Lets hope it remains this way and builds more quickly and with a little more drama. It would be a shame for the series to lose this momentum. Read Full Review
