    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
