    DC Comics News - Tony Farina May 28, 2020

    The Dollhouse Family #6 is the prefect ending for a nearly perfect mini-series. Everything at Hill House has been top notch and this book exemplifies it. The story telling has been evenly paced. The characters are likeable and not likeable exactly when they should be. The art is off the charts good. If you didn't read this series, pre-order the trade right now. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield May 19, 2020

    This is the one of the Hill House books that's probably hardest to sum up in a sentence, but that's a good thing. While all the others seem to be aspiring to homages to old-school horror movies, this one feels like it's playing in the same field as the great horror writers. It still feels like we've only scratched the surface of this world, and I could easily see a follow-up, but this stands alone as a modern horror masterpiece. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally May 19, 2020

    Gross and Locke deliver some beautiful, often brutal visuals throughout this issue. The scenes are framed brilliantly to maximize the suspense as well as showcase the characters and the tone of the story. Cloax is especially menacing and the art delivers on the horror throughout.

    Damn. This was such a good final issue and at moments completely effed up! It not only continued the theme of taking you completely by surprise but wrapped it all up perfectly. I have zero complaints about that ending. As always, the art fits the story so well. As I've said for this entire run, Dollhouse Family is a must-read. Read Full Review

    Horror DNA - James Ferguson May 24, 2020

    The Dollhouse Family reaches a conclusion with this issue, but it's clear this isn't the conclusion. There's more to this story, yet this works as an incredibly satisfying wrap-up to this terrifying tale. It bridges a few different horror sub-genres and delivers on each and every one. This is big, bold horror. Read Full Review

    This is some great stuff and a gem in the middle of a line of books that I am not really fond of. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Kate Snchez May 19, 2020

    Sadly, I just wanted more impact from this series and The Dollhouse Family#6didn't deliver it. There were moments of great storytelling in twisting who the hero of the story is in the end but ultimately, I just wanted more. Carey has an eye for writing horror, but the problem with this series was that it was spent in two time periods and not driving emotion in the Alice's story Read Full Review

    Honestly this was fine but just not what I really wanted in a spooky story. Also way too explain-y.

    ***Reviews the entire series***

    Overall, a good series. Dollhouse Family uses Victorian Era art, style and settings and links it to the modern world. The art was perfect for a comic like this, managing to capture the classic 1700s English scene and the horror engrossed in this comic.

    Starting off slow, this comic really takes its time to build up the setting of the story, finally clasping the connection between three different stories in the final issues. Similar to that of Basketful of Heads, this comic however may have been too slow for some readers to unravel the verdict of the mystery behind the comic. There is set-up and exposition needed in order to make this story function, and it can be very " wordy " or verbo more

    Like the rest of the series, this was fine. It didn't really work well. It needed.... more.
