When an executive at a 1960s stock brokerage acquires a collection of antiquities, the gap between the haves and the have-nots becomes painfully clear. The price of THE SILVER COIN keeps going up, even as the fortune of its owner plummets.

The next chapter in the hit horror anthology from JOSHUA WILLIAMSON, VITA AYALA, RAM V, MATTHEW ROSENBERG, and MICHAEL WALSH lands on shelves this month.

    This fast-paced and quick to read tale fits well within the anthology of the eponymous coin. By coveting the coin the cleaner mirrors the class struggles as we all strive to move up the ladder without looking down to see how we might fall if we slip. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Jan 19, 2022

    The claustrophobic darkness. The prison of a grid. The blood and the snow. This might be one of the better issues of the whole series. The horror here is far from some dark fantasy with fantastic visuals, but the prison of nine-panel pages inhabited by so much ink and darkness...its a very vivid mood that Rosenberg and Walsh are putting to the page. Its kind of overwhelming on so many different levels. The perfect horror comic for the dead of winter. The Silver Coin conjures a particularly haunting nightmare for the beginning of 2022.

    Walsh delivers some awesome, dark imagery throughout the issue. The art does a great job of drawing in the reader and revealing things visually in pace with the story. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Dustin Gebel Jan 22, 2022

    With issue #8, The Silver Coin has begun to enter a dialogue with itself, binding themes and plots together across the titular coins storied history. The issue is a triumph in form and drafting horror from the technical elements of the book, showcasing Walshs talent as both an artist and letterer. If there was any doubt that Walsh is one of the premier voices in modern horror comics, then The Silver Coin is murdering that doubt and reminding us all that good craft is the scariest monster of all.

    The Silver Coin #8 may be set in the 1960s, but its focus on unrepentant greed and grisly horror tropes are bound to have readers thinking about the 80s. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Jan 25, 2022

    It's gory, it's dark, but it feels unfocused and unmotivated. What's more, the story influences are very obvious, making for a so-so-read. Read Full Review
