    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Cody Walker May 20, 2020

    Nailbiter Returns to the stands with a vengeance. There's blood, death, told friends, and new acquaintances. With a little taste of YOU and Dexter, this run promises to delight. We learned the mystery of Buckaroo, but many parts were missing. Are these the missing parts or just more chaos from the hellish depths of Buckaroo? The mystery unravels. Read Full Review

    I'm really glad that this creative team has resurrected Nailbiter. I loved the first series and the second is already off to a great start. Given the pedigree behind this series, I cant see how this can possibly be anything other than a stellar return. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Mikkel Snyder May 14, 2020

    Writing aside, Henderson's artistic contribution to the book was incredible and sells the series. It is definitely gruesome, but it is effective at portraying body horror, at capturing such particularly brutal moments in a stylistic way. The illustrations are scarily detailed, the colors are eerily effective and able to switch between a subdued muted scale to a violently vivid visual. And that's interesting to me and I was enthralled by it, but I also recognize that series is definitely going to appeal to a niche audience. Read Full Review

    It's been a while so I have totally forgotten what Nailbiter was about, but Nailbiter Returns #1 was so seamless that it was obvious what was important and each twist did have quite an impact on me. So kudos to the creative team on this one. Read Full Review
