    Horror DNA - James Ferguson Dec 6, 2020

    Just when I think I have Nailbiter Returns figured out, writer Joshua Williamson adds some signature twists and turns to keep me on my toes. This issue is one of the most disturbing yet as we explore all kinds of hallucinations that will haunt you for days. All the while, the plot is moving forward, getting these characters " and us " ever closer to answers. Nailbiter is much more than a serial killer story. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Nov 25, 2020

    Nailbiter Returns #7 is a very different issue than what has led up to it and it's beyond welcomed. The visuals are crazy without being over the top and there's something fun about the “wtf” of it all. If you've been reading the series, the issue doesn't add a ton other than teases but it's a lot of fun. If you just like crazy art, go for it. This isn't the best place to start but it continues a hell of a fun horror series. Read Full Review

    The book's creators clearly let this installment go off the rails to lean fully into the macabre nature of the concept and, even if we're left with little narrative momentum, the book would be just as strong without a single bubble of dialogue. Read Full Review

    Sequential Planet - Hunter Sandlin Nov 30, 2020

    This issue teases what has yet to be revealed and treats the reading to bizarre artwork. Recommend it to any fan of the series. Read Full Review

    A visually stunning and fun issue, but the series is in desperate need of some direction. Read Full Review
