    Comic Watch - Dustin Gebel Aug 4, 2022

    That Texas Blood #16 is another perfect installment in an already perfect series, elevating the level of craftsmanship in both the script, art, and coloring as it burrows deeper into the conventions of slasher stories. Condon and Phillips have thrived thanks to the shift from gritty crime thriller to slasher/survival story, playing with the rhythm and flow of the book to ratchet the tension and atmosphere of Ambrose County. The white snow works as an oppressive force, blanketing the county and trapping the inhabitants as RQK quietly lurks and plans to strike his next victim. This issue delivers on plenty of explosive dialogue and rising tensions, channeling the best of paranoia and pressure to deliver a compelling chase and missed meetings between Joe Bob and the RQK. Its not too late to catch up with this arc, and not doing so is to do a disservice to one of the best comics on the stands, period. Read Full Review

    Horror DNA - Ricardo Serrano Denis Aug 29, 2022

    The RQK saga is approaching what seems to be the most terrifying part of the story. The anticipation for what's to come has a way of sneaking up on the reader in this fairly quiet but still unnerving issue. So far, That Texas Blood has given its own spin on the slasher genre in this third arc, explored cult violence with a fair amount of Kolchak: The Night Stalker in its second story arc, and channeled the Coen Brothers at their most brutal in their opening arc. The only reason I have for wanting this latest chapter to end is to see what other horrors Condon and Phillips will dig up next for the people of Ambrose County and its tough as nails sheriff.

    Frigid, frightening, and freakishly good, That Texas Blood #16 is about as close to perfect as a comic can get. Read Full Review

    Some strong character-revealing moments along with artwork so strong that it requires no text highlight this issue. The series creators are thankfully still firing on all cylinders halfway through the series' third story arc. Read Full Review
