    Proctor Valley Road in its short run has managed to capture my heart between its endearing cast of characters and the general mystique of the world. The fantastical horror elements have Morrison's signature feel to them and their writing alongside Child's and Franquiz's artwork has resulted in a fantastic period piece, a fantastic speculative piece, and just a solid comic all around.

    Horror DNA - James Ferguson May 24, 2021

    Proctor Valley Road is horror with heart. We are with these characters every step of the way as the creative team has spent the time to develop them. It makes the scares resonate a lot more as we genuinely care about them and want to see them not only survive, but succeed. Here's hoping they get out of this intact. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth May 12, 2021

    Proctor Valley Road #3 feels like it cops the formula from the last issue, but Child and Morrison make the whole thing work with excellent character work and little moments that shine through. The story keeps getting more interesting, and it will be fun to see where this one ends up. Franquizs art doesnt always work with horror, but its still excellent. Proctor Valley Road might not be what fans expected, especially if theyre looking for super weird Morrison, but its still a lot of fun. Read Full Review

    This story only keeps getting better and better, with 'Proctor Valley Road #3' having a strong story and fast paced well timed plot. The art is fantastic, and the colouring is superb, with both of these combined presenting another stylistic and eye-catching issue. Morrison and Child are a dynamic writting duo who are on track to produce one of the best new books of 2021. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Max Funkey May 15, 2021

    Overall I'm really torn about Proctor Valley Road #3. I still find the narrative to be very interesting and want to stick with it. But the plot holes are keeping it from greatness. Perhaps all will be explained in the future, and I'll be able to look back, say that I was wrong, and this is truly a great period horror story. But for the time being, I will just have to wait and see what comes next. Read Full Review
