    I think everyone secretly prays for a comic-book or TV show to come along, that grabs them from the first chapter and then keeps delivering. In reality, most stories take a few instalments to set up, and then deliver random hits and misses through the rest of their tenure. The Nice House On The Lake reeled me in from the off, and it's possible that issue #2 may even be better than the opener. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Ricardo Denis Jul 6, 2021

    The Nice House on the Lake #2The Nice House on the Lake is an intoxicating read, period. Its hard to stop pouring over each panel, each line of dialogue trying to figure everything out. Issue #2 gives readers enough story to keep them hooked while also teasing so much more horror to come. The monthly wait is starting to get difficult, and I can only see it getting harder to hold out till the next chapter. Read Full Review

    BGCP - Michael Lennox Jul 7, 2021

    Tynions' ability to create real characters that we somehow know from limited text brings this alive and the subtle use of mediums like cameras, scripts and artwork layer the book. The artist and colouring team of Bellaire and Bueno bring every panel alive with a feeling of dread and awe. Read Full Review

    Overall, The Nice House On The Lake #2 does a great job at building suspense and advancing the story while still leaving you with questions. What Tynion has created, in just two issues, is one of the most compelling stories I have read in some time. I can't wait to see how this story unfolds. Read Full Review

    The Nice House on the Lake #2 starts to explore the house and the group more. Plus, we learn Walter has been involved in their lives for a lot longer than we thought in the first issue. The mystery of what happened to the world and what will happen to the Lake group is still in the early stages. However, so far, it is a mystery worth following. Read Full Review
