    This issue was nothing short of brilliance; a great start to a new arc and one of the best issues in the entire series. Read Full Review

    Nailbiter #21 is the start of “Bound by Blood”, and boy does it live up to the name right away. Nonetheless Nailbiter continues to remain character driven and always looking to make some sort of progress. There still hasn't been an issue where you feel there isn't something to take from it.

    Multiversity Comics - Jess Camacho May 6, 2016

    A strong issue that serves as a new era for the book but not the best jumping on point for someone brand new to the series. Read Full Review

    Bounding Into Comics - Jared Leatzow May 4, 2016

    Nailbiter #21 introduces some of the conflicts between the characters, but isn't a full blown recap. The writing was good, the dialogue and the plot is easy to follow and makes sense. However, there was an awkward moment with Shannon and Alice that sort of seemed just too convenient for the sake of storytelling. The art looks good as well. Henderson makes it easy to figure out what is taking place. If you are a fan of the series then you will want to pick this one up since it is the beginning of a new story arc. It is also a good place for new readers to jump on board. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Nick Nafpliotis May 4, 2016

    Mike Henderson delivers once again. Unfortunately, he and Williamson have also created yet another heart-stopping cliffhanger ending. Thankfully, we only have to wait a month to see what happens next. Read Full Review

    Flickering Myth - Zeb Larson May 5, 2016

    Honestly, the best thing about this issue was not having to hear about Carroll waking up. It was no shock that Alice isn't the killer, and the fact that she was spared (while blindfolded) is silly as well. Finch will be back in Buckaroo imminently. Maybe this thing with the Blonde will make for better reading. We need something. Read Full Review
