    One of the interesting things about Night of the Ghoul is that it refers to the issues as "episodes" and it's truly fitting considering that each new installment of this horror story is both complete and offers just a bit more to the larger tale of terror that is unfolding. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Ricardo Denis Dec 29, 2021

    Night of the Ghoul #3 isnt afraid to dump scary things on readers laps and then leaving it up to them to process it. Its horrors are out in the open, so were left to contend with how terrifying things are and how terrifying they can get. In a time where puzzle box mysteries dominate the playing field, Snyder and Francavilla are setting up their own rules and making people engage with the story on their terms. Thankfully, those terms are yielding results, paving the way for more scary things to be gleefully afraid of as they make themselves known. Read Full Review

    'Night of the Ghoul' continues to be the jewel of the Comixology Snyderverse with a riveting and intense horror story. There's a constant sense of unease that induces goosebumps without even revealing the monster at the heart of the story. It's a story of madness, obsession, and deception. The worst horrors are yet to come and we can't wait for it. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Dec 28, 2021

    There's a lot of good stuff going on here, especially the brief but critical moments we get between Orson and his father over what Orson's mother is going through and how that changes the course of the investigation. There's a lot of familiar movements here in how Forest and the director handle their discussion but it's executed well with the art style while the material set in the past is interesting just to build up the lore of the Ghoul, even if it is again a familiar and kind of generic thing in a way. The execution is what's driving this more than the actual story because it is a familiar thing, but it's done so well and with enough hooks to draw you in that you want to see it unfold and have some kind of hope for the characters, especially for the younger ones like Alex and Orson.
