    Revelations, bombshells, surprises. Every issue delivers them, and each one leaves us breathless. I thought nothing could surprise me after the way issue #4 ended, but the hits just keep on coming. Over the last few decades DC Comics has delivered true comics classics; V For Vendetta, Watchmen, Sandman, Fables. I truly believe that The Nice House On The Lake deserves to be in the same conversation as all of those iconic stories, and high on the list of comics you need to have in your own collections.

    BGCP - Michael Lennox Oct 5, 2021

    The complicated story has just a few too many protagonists and gaps between each issue and I'm hoping we're going to break the groups into splinters to help character bonding and plot development. The story is amazing and artwork perfect but with monthly gaps, I'm starting to wonder if I should hold off till I have a few at a time to fully enjoy the experience. Read Full Review
