    Horror DNA - James Ferguson Oct 15, 2020

    What's clear about Nailbiter Returns is how well this creative team works together. This is a well-oiled machine of action, horror, and a bit of comedy mixed in. The comic moves at a great pace, never really letting you catch your breath. It's non-stop and I love it. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Sep 30, 2020

    Nailbiter Returns #5 continues the fun ride which takes a turn as our hunted heroes are now on the warpath. The series up to this point felt like a who's who of serial killers hunting victims to up their body count. We're at the part of the story where the game has turned with our heroes standing up and now hunting the serial killers. This isn't a traditional outsmart the killer and survive, this is much more Terminator than Elm Street. It's an infusion of a fun aspect that should make this series even more over the top and unpredictable. Read Full Review

    This installment strikes a good balance of narrative momentum and violent chaos, both of which are what draw readers into this title, though neither component is necessarily stronger than any previous issue, resulting in this chapter largely feeling like an expository necessity to further the actual story being told.
