"For each of Man's evils, a special demon exists." For thirty years, the demon of vengeance has been still, its corpse buried in a pumpkin patch graveyard in the hills. But when a reckless driver accidentally kills a pair of children, the creature is called up once more. This time, though, the monster's intended target is protected by a cruel backwoods crime family. They hatch their own supernatural plans for dealing with Pumpkinhead. For each of man's sins, a special demon exists, and when seven infernal creatures roam the hills and the hollows, no one - guilty or otherwise - is safe.

    Outright Geekery - Tom Guilfoyle Feb 12, 2018

    Pumpkinhead issue 1 is a fantastically eerie horror with fantastic writing and unnerving art. Cullen is a master of horror when it comes to comics. Shepherd and Ribeiro are a perfect combination. This is perfect for any horror fan even if you're not familiar with the source material. Dynamite have another hit on their hands. Read Full Review

    Dread and terror infect even the most mundane conversations. As much as the Sheriff hopes to resolve things in a conventional way, it is clear that that will never be possible.Pumpkinhead #1 is agreat beginning to a vengeance fable about all too real modern evils and the lengths that ordinary people might go to in order to see justice served.

    Comic Crusaders - Bryan Spaulding Feb 21, 2018

    Horror comics have really exploded to the front of the stage for me recently. With modern masters like Bunn working in the field, it's easy to be a fan. Aficionados of supernatural or horror titles should really give this book a chance. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Reed Hinckley-Barnes Feb 22, 2018

    "Pumpkinhead" #1 doesn't do enough to pull in readers, and the artwork ends up being a bit too inconsistent. Read Full Review
