Three escaped convicts are looking for a set of wheels that can carry them to freedom. Charlie Manx has just the ride they need... but when they get to Christmasland, they'll wish they went to prison instead. Ten years of hard time looks pretty easy compared to 24 hours in a frozen graveyard disguised as the world's coldest, cruelest amusement park.

    Oh, it's good, son. Go read that ish, dog. The only fault to be found is that with all the chronological hopping, it's a little tough to remember the everyone's timelines. At least it is for me, but I've never been blessed with a Fotos-graphic memory (see what I did there?). I'm dreaming of the next issue, and more demonic-lookin' reindeer, obese, elderly-lookin' giant teddy bears, and other Christmasland scary-merriment. Read Full Review

    Florida Geek Scene - Jesse Scheckner Jan 15, 2014

    Joe Hill's script keeps the creepy factor balanced precisely between the absurd and the unnerving. Every character's voice, now two issues deep each, has grown more defined, and you can almost hear the reedy timbre of King Geek's taunting interjections, Hansom's growly baritone and Manx's gravelly enthused double entendres.

    All-Comic - Dan Pennacchia Jan 15, 2014

    The issue is mostly without any visible violence. Joe Hill does a great job at telling stories and presenting situations that strike a chord that is much more primal and effective than leaving it to some overly graphic image. The book is not without its uglinesss, and it certainly has many chilling elements. Pairing the ongoing tale of Charlie Manx, his car, and Christmasland, The Wraith is a superb twisted new title. Wilson and Fotos add to the script, creating fascinatingly creepy visuals. The total package of The Wraith comes together wonderfully and for fans of Hill's writing, The Wraith is absolutely a book to follow. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - James Anders II Jan 15, 2014

    If anyone thought or thinks that Hill is simply a one hit wonder with Locke and Key, then you are mistaken big time. I offer you this little story. Take a ride in Charlie Manx's Wraith. You will be happy that you did. Read Full Review
