    The Dollhouse Family #5 is another excellent addition to the ever growing excellence that is Hill House Comics. I simply can't recommend this finely crafted work of gory fun enough. Read Full Review

    Horror DNA - James Ferguson Mar 31, 2020

    The Dollhouse Family really ups its game with this issue. I will admit I fell off a bit around issue #3 or #4, but this one more than makes up for it. It's an absolutely terrifying comic that shocked and scared me. I've been trying to rank the Hill House Comics titles for a bit, but it's proving to be an impossible task with how solid each book has been. Read Full Review

    Big Comic Page - Mark Scott Mar 12, 2020

    This year has produced some great titles already, and this is one of my favourites. I cant find fault with anything this team has produced so far, and I think that its going to take something very special to knock The Dollhouse Family out of my top 3 comics this year. Read Full Review

    Forces Of Geek - Lenny Schwartz Mar 16, 2020

    Carey is writing one hell of a strong story here. He swings for the fences throughout and really has put together a great story with well developed characters. I can't wait to see how he finishes this. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Mar 11, 2020

    Gross and Locke perfectly capture the mood and tone of this story in the art. The characters look amazing and the style is perfect with some beautifully laid out panels that capture the eye. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Mar 11, 2020

    The Dollhouse Family #5, the penultimate issue of Carey and Gross' original cross-generational chiller delivers in the answers we're looking for, even if it's at the cost of some of the chills we're used to getting in every issue. Read Full Review

    A quiet issue full of revelations and demonic surprises. Read Full Review

  • 8.0 - Patrick Cavanaugh Mar 11, 2020

    This chapter might not have as many horrifying reveals as its predecessors, but as the narrative starts to become more clear, readers will be relieved to see all the disparate threads starting to weave together for a perplexing and disturbing storyline. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Joey Casco CSW/CSS Mar 11, 2020

    This is another very good issue from this great overall story, although I did want more from it since we only have one issue left. We finally get to see who the Dollhouse Family is and why they're there, Alice decides to take on the house rather than the Dollhouse, and that last two pages were just a big "WTF, are you serious?" I don't know how this all can possibly wrap up with just one more installment, but I'm really looking forward to it. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Kate Snchez Mar 11, 2020

    The Dollhouse Family #5 does the job a penultimate issue is supposed to go, it got me excited for the conclusion, which was all I wanted it to do. Read Full Review
