    But Why Tho? - Kate Snchez May 26, 2020

    The Low Low Woods #5is beautiful. It's powerful. And to put it simply, this series is the top of what Hill House Comics offers. There is mystery, magic, and malevolence on every page that pushes the reader deeper into the fantastical town of Shudder-To-Think. As we go deeper, the trauma keeps exposing itself, and I can't wait to see where it ends up next issue. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke May 26, 2020

    This is a good fifth issue that gives readers a lot of answers. They're satisfying in a scary sort of way, and for some I suspect they will be unsatisfying for their disturbing nature. That said, don't pass on this issue if you've read even a single issue of this series. The scary nature is revealed and it truly is horrific. Read Full Review

    The Low, Low Woods #5 blends its Greek influences with a story and style that make everything seem even darker than before, and that sets up the next chapter well without needing to sacrifice anything in this one. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Joey Casco CSW/CSS May 26, 2020

    On my first read of this issue I was like "... what?.... wait.... what?" But just get over the confusion of where this mysterious water is coming from because, my goodness, you done messed up, little witch. So many things that seem unrelated come together here and start to make sense as you see what happened to this town and what happened to the witch. Despite my reviews never coming out of the 7's for single issues, I continue to believe that this will make an incredible trade. Read Full Review
