    I look forward to every single issue of this book because of how weird it is, despite the overdone pact-from-way-back-when/kid-must-die-when-they’re-an-adult theme. If you like creepy, eerie, gory, and scary stories, don’t hesitate to pick this one up. Read Full Review

    This is wrong. This shouldn't be happening. But it happens all the time in Harrow County, with a vengeance. Last issue trees were frightening, now it's dressers. I dare you to read this and not approach the one in your room cautiously. Highest possible recommendation. Read Full Review

    Emmys quest to learn more about her small community is painted with an alarming amount of unspeakable horrors but remains fun to experience because of the emotional investment left on the page. Harrow County is the finest example of modern horror comics. Its decidedly beautiful horror, a genre we get less and less of with each passing day. Dont miss it. Read Full Review

    Right now, there is no comic I enjoy reading more than "Harrow County," and it's barely begun. I look forward to spending many more issues immersed in this world Bunn and Crook have created. Read Full Review

    Harrow County #2 is a smart and to the point yarn that not only deserves an audience but might just manage to conjure up one. I had no idea what to expect when I purchased its#1 but I'm happy I did, because two issues laterand I can tell that this was a worthwhile investment on my part as both a critic and a fan. Recommended. Read Full Review

    Harrow County is easily becoming a must read comic. It's not often I find myself digging a horror book, but this one has me hooked. Bunn and Crook create such a domestic and creepy setting full of unsettling darkness and dread. It's hard to find such an inspired series. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Alex Mansfield May 31, 2015

    Things are happening fast in Harrow County with the immersive opening salvo having established the tone and issue #2 finds an adroit balance between thematic exploration and tension-filled action. The narrative is quickly peeling away at the gruesome details of the pact made amongst this community and the nature of the supernatural occurrences since, while placing the emotional focus on this confused, terrorized young woman who feels trapped between two radically different places with nothing to hold on to. Few titles in this genre are as dense and even fewer are this convincingly textured and realized only two issues in. Harrow County is an elegy of horror, one that straddles the line between childish curiosities and the unforgiving harshness of adulthood. Read Full Review

    It's only after some mysterious healings and an impromptu town meeting at the tree that we see what might have happened. Emmy may or may not have been the live girl pulled from the tree after the witch burning " another girl was found dead, like the calves of the first issue " and now that she's eighteen, it's time to" kill her? Maybe? That's the assumption she makes and runs away with her Haint. So far the story has been weird and intriguing enough to keep my attention despite the common tropes it's based on and the cliffhangers keep me on the edge of my seat for more. Read Full Review

    Obviously you need to like horror and not slasher horror, but creepy, scary horror. Harrow County is that type of horror. It rattles you to your core and makes you cautious the next time something hits your window in the middle of the night. That kind of horror is great because it messes with your mind more than anything and once you can do that the series can really start messing with you. If this sounds like something you'd like to check out then grab the first issue and get caught up. Read Full Review

    As far as stories of growth and growing up go, we've got millions to choose from. As Harrow County progresses, I expect to get sucked deeper into its brambles of horror and terrifying forests of human evolution. Because in reality, what's scarier than turning into an adult? Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Kierra Prince Jun 15, 2015

    Altogether I can see myself picking up at least one more issue just to see where the story is going and if there's bigger things that Bunn has planned. But I also couldn't be more disappointed in this second issue. I thoughtHarrow County was going to be my gothic horror comic dream come true but this second issue left me feeling like I'm going to have continue to wait for that dream to become a reality.
