In the final issue, Henry Henry shows his true colours as he-I promised myself I would not interject again, but alas I must: "True colours"?! Really?! I appreciate it is only marketing copy, but must the closing chapter of my opus be marred with such overwrought cliche? At least pretend to care. -HH

    Horror DNA - James Ferguson May 5, 2019

    Fearscape is next level storytelling. It's easily one of the best comics of the year and this issue just seals the deal. I am simultaneously overjoyed and angered by the twists and turns the book has taken. It's definitely an unexpected journey that will keep you guessing until the very end. Buy this book with confidence. Read Full Review

    Henry Henry can't handle it anymore. Arthur gets all the attention, what about Henry? Well, if Henry can't have it, no one can. Henry decides to try to destroy the Fearscape. It's up to Jill to stop him. Andrea Mutti and Vladimir Popov perfectly pace Ryan O'Sullivan's story with their wonderful art. This is a story that you'll want to go back to read and reflect on.

    Comics Bookcase - Zack Quaintance Apr 24, 2019

    This is perhaps the best finale of any comicbook Ive read all year, one that makes good on the vast promise of the first issue while packing a shocking yet earned surprise. Fearscape #5 lands in a place that makes all that came before it more meaningful. Kudos. Read Full Review

    The Brazen Bull - Dave Robbins Apr 24, 2019

    Fearscape is ambitious and brilliant, taking a story told in comic book form to the next level. Literate, satirical and self-aware, yet as thrilling as a horror should be, this is a wholly original story about plagiarism that should not be missed. Read Full Review

    So, with apologies to the creative team for jumping on this so late, I have to say that this is a great series that has taken me to some interesting places, some that are fantastical, some that are horrific and some that have made me think about what is truly important in this world.
