    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth Nov 26, 2021

    Night Of The Ghoul #2 is like the perfect horror serial that one can only get from a comic. It's cinematic yet still obviously a comic. Snyder and Francavilla are gelling perfectly for this one, as Snyder is amazingly playing to his artist's strengths. This is one not to miss. Read Full Review

    COMICON - Olly MacNamee Nov 23, 2021

    ‘Night Of The Ghoul' #2 is a horror comic that drips with gothic atmosphere and chills. A cursed film, a damaged director and a hellish hospital all add up to one terrifying tale. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Nov 25, 2021

    This is a haunted house story at its core, one that spans time and plays games with our perceptions. As it goes on, we get some great, unsettling jump scares. It continues to be the most ambitious and fascinating of the whole Scottober lineup so far. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Nov 23, 2021

    I am in love with the classic look and feel of this comic. The art is so classic in style, but also timeless and is visually engaging. There are some beautiful visual touches to be found on every page. Read Full Review

    Everything that was outstanding about the first issue of Night of the Ghoul continues with issue #2. The story continues with readers getting a bit more of the "lost movie" that isn't the fiction that Forest Innman thought it was (thus revealing even more of the "ancient evil" story to readers) while also ratcheting up the terror in the present, particularly for Forest's son.

    AIPT - David Brooke Nov 24, 2021

    Night of the Ghoul follows up the first issue with an even creepier and disturbing second issue. I was teetering on this being my least favorite series from Snyder's first three titles, but this second issue has swayed me. Night of the Ghoul is a hair-raising and disturbing horror story that rivals some of the best horror classics of our time. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Ricardo Denis Nov 30, 2021

    Night of the Ghoul is a well-oiled machine made by two masters of the craft. Horror runs deep in its DNA and it understands the inner working of it in intimate detail. The comic is well on its way to becoming a horror comics classic. If it holds steady, itll become a story Ill be recommending to readers interested in expanding into the comics medium for their horror fixes. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Dec 7, 2021

    This has all the right elements of horror to it as it moved onto the next stage here as the war finished and things began to come home. I like the use of the son that's seeing what's really going on and trying to get people to listen while at the same time we get things in the present where both men aren't quite on the same page in how they're reaching each other. It's a really smartly scripted book in its pacing and Francavilla delivers some absolutely gorgeous artwork, especially with its color design, to make something really intriguing and enjoyable to read here. This adds more fuel to the fire and has me excited to see where it goes next. Read Full Review
