    Bunn is the perfect choice for a series like this, given his background in horror stories (most recently with Harrow County). This is a great take on an old-time video-game movie, and I can’t wait to see what new changes Bunn decides to make. Right now, things are looking like a stereotypical slasher film, but knowing Bunn, we’ll get some really insane twists in subsequent issues. Paying homage to ‘80s and ‘90s slasher flicks, Bunn writes a story of an unstoppable killer. For anyone who enjoys a good horror book, you’ve got to get your hands on this issue, coming out on June 1st from Lion Forge Comics! Read Full Review

    I'm hoping that the slasher's personality or lack thereof is explored a bit more than it was in this first issue, but I'm confident that Bunn will flesh him out in future issues. Bunn has proven he can write a solid villain, like he did in the Sixth Gun. I'm on board for at least the next couple issues and love the slasher genre Bunn and Bastos are playing in with Night Trap!

    Night Trap #1 is a fun, enjoyable horror comic. If you're into slasher archetypes, then this will definitely be worth your while. You're dropped into a world that is very familiar, and yet mysterious as you watch it unfold before your eyes. You get a front seat to all of the action and mystery as well as a number of surprises as events unfold. A few of the events are predictable, but it doesn't take away from the fun of the comic as a whole. Cullen Bunn does a good job writing, and the art duel of JB Bastos, and Robby Bevard bring you into a very vivid and dark world. Read Full Review

    Okay, so while this isnt exactly a first issue thats going to set the world on fire, its Cullen Bunn for gods sake, so I know there has to be more to the story than this.  As I said, the solicitation blurb gives me hope for the series as it moves forwards, but unfortunately Im not reviewing the blurb, Im reviewing the first issue, and as it stands, this is currently little more than a bland, generic and ultimately unengaging slasher yarn. In fact, the only thing keeping me holding on at this point is the unquestioned horror pedigree of its writer.  Fingers crossed for issue two, then. Read Full Review
