After the tragic events of the third issue, the villainous Henry Henry finds himself... No! The advertising copy provided here by the publisher will not do! The events of our third chapter (please refrain from calling them issues) are hardly tragic. Our brave hero bested two villains, yet his reward is to be libeled against in marketing copy? -HH

    I read Fearscape through gritted teeth and white knuckles, angered by the sheer audacity of Henry Henry. His not-so-carefully constructed ruse is starting to crumble and I cannot wait until it all falls down upon him. From the looks of things, he's not going to go down without a fight, but it will all be worth it to see him taken down a peg. Read Full Review

    Overall, I love this comic. I really have nothing negative to say about it. The writing is clever, and the art is lovely, and if you arent reading it already, what the hell are you doing? Read Full Review

    Fearscape #4 continues the endlessly convoluted journey of our utterly distasteful narrator, to great effect. Read Full Review

    The Brazen Bull - Dave Robbins Feb 13, 2019

    Fearscape is smart, funny and outrageous, not only breaking the fourth wall but climbing into the reader's head to leave a big steamy pile of fragrant absurdity. Read Full Review

    If I had one complaint about Vault Comics it would be that unless you get into the book at the ground floor, you may find yourself a bit lost as you pick up separate issues, a problem that also faces These Savage Shores, which may work for trade paperback sales. Still, that is a publishing problem and one that needn't worry O'Sullivan, Mutti and company as they continue their trek through the fears of Henry and quite possibly our fears also.

    Comics Bookcase - Zack Quaintance Feb 12, 2019

    Fearscape #4 is another strong issue of a meta-fictional comic about how it feels to have unfulfilled literary aspirations. This comic remains a must-read for English majors and literary dabblers, anyone who has taken a creative writing workshop or read canonical novel in a coffee shop and daydreamed about their name on its cover.
