    Newsarama - David Pepose May 5, 2015

    There are going to be people who want to get to the point fast, to have economical storytelling like the days of yore - a more episodic kind of storytelling, one that sacrifices mood and pacing for sheer speed and completion. But Williamson and company are actually doing something a little bit different here - they continue to showcase a new "freak of the week" with almost every issue, but they're window dressing towards a larger story that creeps along month after agonizing month. It's the cruelest kind of torture, but they soften the blow by making the stops and starts feel engaging and smart. There is a method to the madness here, and it's that kind of thinking - crazy or not - that'll keep readers coming back to Buckaroo. Read Full Review

    Nailbiter #12 is a solid step forward giving us an idea as to what we can expect next. Be it revelations or drastic character decisions, nobody is safe from the horrors that lurk behind Buckaroo and themselves as they look to solutions. Read Full Review

    Infinite Comix - Jacob Torres May 8, 2015

    Joshua Williamson's Nailbiter continues to be one of the best constructed ongoing horror books available. Though not quite as riveting as the last issue it's still not one to be missed. Meticulously paced and plotted, Nailbiter #12 is consistently compelling and engaging as Williamson reveals new layers of the mythology. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Mat 'Inferiorego' Elfring May 6, 2015

    Another very solid issue of NAILBITER. Issue to issue, this is a good book, but is works even better in trade. The second issue of this story gives the reader better insight into some of its characters while progressing the story. NAILBITER is always giving the reader more. It's got a great story, some solid shocks and a dynamic mixture of horror and mystery. Check this book out. Read Full Review

    The Latest Pull - Thomas Harbaugh May 7, 2015

    It appears that Nailbiter is finally on the right track, but it remains to be seen how long it will stay this way. What we have is one the most exciting concepts for a comic book, trudging along, with too little answers being given. The inclusion of the townspeople raising arms against law enforcement demonstrates promise, especially given that we're finally starting to receive some answers regarding the mystery of the town, but that hasn't stopped this from being a title best read in trade.

    Fortress of Solitude - Byron Hendricks May 12, 2015

    The new threat in Oregon is not that great and they make for a weak cliffhanger. What we need to see is more of Warren and Finch as they duke it out verbally and physically. Finchs aggression is great to see as he exemplifies just how Buckaroo can affect one emotionally and mentally. This leads the reader to believe that Finch may have become the monster in this nail biting issue. Read Full Review
