    This whole series feels like some sophisticated horror writing to me. Bunn doesn’t stick to slashers and poltergeists, because we’ve seen all that before. Instead, we get a multi-pronged, sub-texted story with a lot of elements within it: the concept of the “outsider,” the acceptance of one’s family, constant judgment, community service, respect for our elders, etc. The list goes on and on! This is truly what sophisticated horror is all about, and I come to love it more and more with every issue. Read Full Review

    Bounding Into Comics - Seth DeHaan May 10, 2016

    For a story that didn't do much to move the plot forward, it was entertaining, but not as substantial as the side stories in the last few issues. Harrow County #12 has a pretty narrow focus, and I found myself wishing for an appearance from anyone in the regular supporting cast. We get to see more of how Emmy's handling the changes in her life, and how that affects her interactions with people, but not much in the way of character development that hasn't already been covered.

    At the very least, this sets up the next main story arc for the series and the return of a character we all knew we hadn't seen the last of. Read Full Review

    Harrow County is still a superb title that every horror fan should be reading–just maybe skip this issue. Let's hope that next month sees the book return to form"or the Bernice storyline, at least. Read Full Review
