    As a father of kids who were bullied, as well as the victim growing up myself, I do love a good revenge story as in life bullies almost never face their comeuppance. This is a great short, stand alone issue of this anthology and well worth a read. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff May 12, 2021

    It's gruesome, and it's fun. Thompson manages something relatively deep thematically about the horror that we carry with us everywhere we go. A story that would have felt much more concise in an old horror anthology of the 1950s feels a bit long in a full-length contemporary comic book. Read Full Review

    On its own The Silver Coin #2 delivers a tale sure to satisfy horror fans, but as a second issue it promises that this anthology will not disappoint or repeat itself as new writers join the effort. Whoever drafts the next story, it seems all but guaranteed that Walsh will deliver new nightmares not to be missed. Read Full Review
