    Comics: The Gathering - Nathan Koffler May 1, 2019

    Goosebumps: Horrors of the Witch House #1 is a wonderful introduction to what seems to be another great IDW Goosebumps comic book series. This first issue is very entertaining and very compelling and made complete by the talented team that put it together. Read Full Review

    Horror DNA - James Ferguson May 10, 2019

    Goosebumps: Horrors of the Witch House is another solid addition to this notable series. It's very much an all-ages title, enjoyable for kids and adults alike. The children that grew up reading Goosebumps (myself included) can now share them with their kids in comic book form and that's a wonderful thing. This is a great way to introduce a younger audience into horror without freaking them out. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Brent Jackson Apr 30, 2019

    Goosebumps: Horrors of the Witch House #1 is a solid start to a new three-part Goosebumps comic. IDW has been doing a good job of getting creative teams together to not only catch that Goosebumps "essence" for the series, but the art also has a very consistent tone to it as well.

  • 4.0 - Megan Peters May 1, 2019

    The iconic franchise has thrilled fans for years as author R.L. Stine's novels continue to captivate, and IDW hopes to bring that same tension into its new comic run. However, its first issue falls flat and fails to stir up such an emotion. Read Full Review
