Desperate men will do desperate things. It was desperation that drove Chess Llewelyn to commit a crime that bought him seven years hard time... and it's desperation of another sort that drives the King Geek, Denis Sikes, to attempt a jailbreak of staggering ingenuity and violence. Chess will find himself hauled along for the ride: a ride so terrifying it could almost be one of the attractions in scenic Christmasland!

    Florida Geek Scene - Jesse Scheckner Dec 18, 2013

    Considering how early Wraith is in developing its story, it would be a smart move for anyone interested in indulging the voids pull to start reading this phenomenal tale sooner rather than later. Something tells me were only sinking deeper into the abyss. Read Full Review

    When reading this comic you are always aware that there is something horrible around the corner. There is a feeling of dread that goes along with all great horrors and that isthe sensethat everyone is fucked. Wraith has this covered. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Sean M. Thompson Dec 11, 2013

    After being fairly underwhelmed with Thumbprint, and less so though still underwhelmed with the second to last issue of Locke and Key, Sean thought himself over the Hill. But with Wraith, things have taken a decidedly darker turn. In this second issue we get prisoners, and the banter is just delightfully obscene. Also, there's this old guy in the beginning who is wildly entertaining. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - James Anders II Dec 11, 2013

    Joe Hill's script likewise loses some of the creepiness found previously, but each word of this story is building on something. What that something is? We don't quite know or even understand. But like the masterful writer that Hill is, he is building, brick by brick, introducing characters and developing a story that appears to be aiming for nightmarish soul sucking horror with real world blood and guts crime as well. This is a journey that we might not want to take, but with Hill driving and Wilson riding shotgun, we are in store for a fun ride. I know that I am enjoying it thus far. You should too.

    Comics: The Gathering - mahargen Dec 11, 2013

    Even without the Christmasland aspect, this was a fun story. Easily something that would be at home in a book of Hill's short stories. In the comic medium it exceeds the previous wordy installment. I'm a completist and I really enjoy Hill's work with IDW. I'm in for the duration. Read Full Review
