    We The Nerdy - Cameron McFarland Oct 29, 2017

    Readers who know me will know that I can be very picky when it comes to kids' books. For something to be interesting and worthwhile to a child, it needs to firstly look appealing. I have to say, the art inGoosebumps holds that bar well. It's clean and colorful; all of the characters are very expressive, and every panel is clear and easy to read. The writing holds up as well. It's all very natural, and I think easy to relate to for any young reader. Nothing in the book is so Lovecraftian-scale of horror that it will traumatize anyone, but there is a clear mood that sets in after dark and I can imagine this being the perfect comic to read on a camping trip or just under the bedsheets.

    This one is for the fans asGoosebumps: Monsters at Midnight #1 is a good start for a story that's ready to dive right into the horror season. Sure the team keeps it fun, campy and a little strange and isn't that what makes this kid centric franchise work in the first place? Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Brent Jackson Oct 26, 2017

    I am judging Goosebumps Monsters at Midnight #1 on what it is a revamp of Goosebumps in comic book form for a younger audience and I am wondering how that is going to go? Do kids read Goosebumps novels anymore? I know there was a movie released last year, for someone like me who grew up reading the books and watching the tv show I get all the little jokes and nods throughout Goosebumps Monster at Midnight #1 and characters that are in it, but I am just curious how someone younger and not as familiar with the franchise would feel about Goosebumps Monsters at Midnight#1? It is a pretty good all-ages book, nothing great but it is off to a good start and I am intrigued by the rotating format that if one story does not catch my eye I will be on the look at in a few months for the next one.

    So, you know what, it’s not a bad book. I guess I wouldn’t call it Goosebumps, just Goosebumpsish. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Sam King Apr 18, 2018

    Overall, this series was lackluster. I wanted more and there wasn't enough horror. Slappy wasn't his glorious creepy self and the author just didn't seem to have the guts to give kids the horror they deserve and probably even crave. They're kids, not babies, it's okay to creep them out. As a child, I could've read this at night and not been the least bit affected, which really tells you everything. Reading Goosebumps at night should increase fear levels. I read it at night and was positively bored, so I can only imagine the disappointment young me would've experienced. Some kids might like it, but I would just suggest buying an actual Horrorland series book by R. L. Stine. Leave the work to the expert. Read Full Review
