    It's too bad The Silver Coin #6 didn't come out before Halloween, as it's a highly entertaining one-shot horror story. It also does well to remind us of previous stories while introducing a clever take on video games in horror. Once again, this series shows how comics can do more with horror than many genres as Josh Williamson and Michael Walsh delight with gore, violence, and clever ideas. Read Full Review

    The Cursed Coin strikes again with an exceptionally strong issue to start its second run. The curse needs to feed and there an almost infinite possibilities out there for the writers to craft. Read Full Review

    Walsh delivers some beautifully brutal art throughout the story and the tension built up through the panels is brilliantly executed. Fullerton delivers some great art in the story with the use of atmosphere and environment to deliver tension. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Nov 8, 2021

    The title artifact finally makes it to a video arcade. The horror of a single coin is going to find its natural habitat in a video arcade. The premise finds such a primal home there that any creative team would want to embellish on the idea a LOT more than Williamson and Walsh manage here. They don't try to reach for too much...knowing exactly what they're capable of putting into a simple 20-page one-shot story. There's a clever kind of mastery in that. Read Full Review

    The Silver Coin returns with a very familiar mode of horror story. From the first page it's clear where this one is heading and it does not disappoint when things get bloody. Read Full Review
