    Comic Bastards - Chris Tresson Aug 15, 2016

    A great issue all-round and it comes wrapped in a lovely cover worthy of the book's cover price alone. If you like your horror comics and you've already read the previous issues, keep up the good work and get yourself a copy. Matter of fact, get two copies. One to read and one to frame because this book is a masterclass in how you do horror comics and the fact the story is woven with elements of truth makes it all the creepier. If you aren't reading this book, you're missing out. Read Full Review

Part horror, part mystery, all the facts are finally laid out for us, right before the table is cleared. Read Full Review

    The art style by Ian Bertram gets a little explosive as a sea of red begins to worm its way into place. I will admit the odd dream scene widow Winchester has stands out in this issue. It shows her descent into madness as she attempts to get her family back. While I wish I could share it, the one large vertical panel in this issue is one that should get attention. The attention to detail in that panel is well done, showcasing the sheer size of the house. Read Full Review
