    But Why Tho? - Kate Snchez Jan 22, 2020

    With only a few issues left, Basketful of Heads #4 proves that horror fans far and wide should be looking to Hill House Comics and most definitely picking up this title. While I'm still frustrated by the seemingly short length given the inclusion of the Sea Dogs chapter per issue, that's only because I want more of June's story. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Jan 22, 2020

    Leomacs mixes both the beautiful and the grotesque brilliantly in this issue. The details in each panel are fantastic and the art moves deftly along with the story. There is a sense of momentum in the art that is propelling the story forward. Read Full Review

    The team behind Basketful of Heads #4 (Hill, Leomacs, Stewart, Bennett) masterfully weaves a story through the use of dynamic art and realistic dialogue. This issue is a must read. Read Full Review

    There are a lot of fun horror comic books with a great story. Basketful of Heads brings the creep factor in a gruesome fashion. The story is engaging, and I'm actually worried that June might not make it out alive. In my book, that's $3.99 well spent. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Tony Farina Jan 22, 2020

    Overall, Basketful of Heads #4 is a good issue. It is not great, but it moves the story along. The artwork is stunning. Leomacs and Dave Stewart are a horror comics dream team (nightmare team?). I am constantly pulled in. The pacing of each issue is great. The way that Hill leaves us with a cliffhanger each time is inspired and smart. There is no way we can forget June and her blight as we wait with baited breath for 30 days. Read Full Review

    If this series goes the way I think its going then were in for a real whirlwind in the next few issues, resulting in a hell of a ride that you do not want to miss. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Joey Casco CSW/CSS Jan 22, 2020

    Again, first and foremost, the art style is awesome. Overall this was a very fast-moving issue compared to the first three and I really liked it. Even though I would have expected to have a bit more plot progress at this point, the series has managed to keep me invested in the story and the characters.  With Hank's revelation at the end it looks like things are about to ramp up, and if they do this will make for a very good trade. Ya know, for being called "Basketful of Heads" that basket is pretty full with only two heads in it, so that might be it... unless Hank is about to join them.  Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Jan 22, 2020

    The whole story has the vibe of a 70's grindhouse supernatural slasher, but while the other three books weave slow-paced mysteries, this seems like a one-joke horror concept that doesn't really go anywhere more than half of the way in. Read Full Review

    It's time to keep moving forward or jump ship, because no matter how good Leomacs makes this comic look, it still needs to deliver a story possessing some points of interest. Read Full Review
