Having escaped the clutches of the Fearscape, Henry Henry tries to... Aha! You'll use my name, I see, but won't let me speak! That you would require solicitation copy for the third issue, after the genre-redefining brilliance of the first two, is nothing short of a personal insult. The work speaks for itself. Any tale of my exploits should not be hawked to those asleep at the wheel.

    Horror DNA - James Ferguson Dec 20, 2018

    Fearscape elicits a visceral reaction in the reader. We've been pulled so completely into this world, both the real side and the fantasy side, that we're along for this ride 100%. I want nothing more than to see Henry Henry get what he really deserves. Based on the events of this issue, I hope it comes sooner rather than later because he is a heinous human being.

    Overall, I thought that this was a great issue, probably my favourite so far. Sad, intense and distressing, the story has progressed to places I did not anticipate. Loving the pacing and dark character development as well. Read Full Review

    Henry Henry lies to find false fame and phony fortune. But what happens when all this lying finally catches up with him? Ryan O'Sullivan brings us an installment of THE FEARSCAPE that we've been waiting for: Henry's comeuppance. Andrea Mutti keeps the narrative going, providing art that not only instills Henry's insecurities, but also gives us relief to see a fake hero feeling unsure. Vladimir Popov's colors will warm your hears to Henry's slow demise. Read Full Review

    Henry Henry's future's never been brighter, and neither has the darkness within. Fearscape #3 raises the stakes for our irreverent narrator, and then some. Read Full Review

    The Brazen Bull - Dave Robbins Dec 12, 2018

    The wild examination of Imposter Syndrome is mostly thriller, but at times a crazy meta-comment on creators and the creative process. We are our own worst enemy. The work speaks for itself, and quite deliberately. Read Full Review

    Comics Bookcase - Zack Quaintance Dec 12, 2018

    A literary comic about what it feels like to be a struggling artist, Fearscape continues its descent into delusional frustration, doing so with a clever narrative voice and some visual tricks that convey a mindstate in ways only comics can. This is a must-read book for anyone who has contemplated the art life. Read Full Review
