    The Nice House on the Lake #7 is further confirmation we're seeing the makings of a classic horror comic as it develops. What's surprising is how much of the story is still in the process of revealing itself. Less meticulous creators would've probably given most or the entire mystery away by now. Tynion and Martnez Bueno are still in the secret keeping business and it's making the looming finale feel like a massive event ready to change the very definition of horror. Read Full Review

    This really needed a couple of pages of “previously on Blossom…” style pages to fill in the gaps since issue #6. It was hard enough to keep up with the various protagonists (who change every issue) as well as the dense and labyrinthine twists and shocks that the story has already provided. It is not the issue pick up randomly but if you're brave pick up the collected version of issues 1#6 or beg your LCBS to find the back issues. It's still a great story that leaves a stress headache after you read but that's what a great book does, challenge the reader and keep them focussed! Read Full Review
