"Calling all scary movie fans!

Scotland, 1994.

Eighteen-year-old Thumper Connell still has an imaginary friend: the masked killer from his favourite slasher film. Thumper is obsessed with horror and always has been. He fills his time with scary VHS rentals and hanging out with his fellow fans, The Murder Club. But everything changes when his local video shop acquires one of the notorious films known as "video nasties" - films so scary, they're the target of the British Moral Decency League's crusade to ban and burn. But it's only a movie, right? It's all just imaginary, isn't it?

A story about the perception of evil more

    So yes, its another John Lees title that I have unashamedly donned the cheerleader outfit and Pom-poms for (pictures available on my OnlyFans.) But lets be honest, am I ever wrong about a Lees title? Im pretty sure that John is incapable of putting out an average comic never mind a bad one, so get out there and grab a copy. I promise you wont be disappointed! Read Full Review

    AIPT - Nathan Simmons Apr 10, 2023

    'The Nasty' is a bloody valentine to slashers and the outsiders who love them. This first issue also sets up several compelling concepts for future issues to explore. Read Full Review

    Lotusland Comics - Hank Rea Apr 6, 2023

    'The Nasty' is a love letter to slasher flicks and a generation of kids who loved them. Tender, funny, surprising, endearing, with an emerging horrific twist. We had 'Faces of Death' as the taboo underground horror tape that was whispered about but it wasn't cursed. 'The Nasty' takes a fun nostalgic trip down memory lane and elevates it to a new level of horror.  Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Apr 5, 2023

    The Nasty #1 is a solid debut with an interesting take on the horror genre. It should be interesting to see where it all goes and overall, the debut issue shows off a lot of potential replacing what we'd expect is a horror story with something that resembles more of The Goonies.

    Capes & Tights - Justin Soderberg Apr 4, 2023

    Simple cartoon-style artwork with outstanding horror storytelling is a combination you can't miss. Add into the mix the nostalgia of heading to the local video rental shop to grab your favorite VHS tape just completes the deal. You get all of this and more in the debut of The Nasty.

    Cursed horror films are nothing new but this is still great. We have friendships between outcasts in a small town with one who has a rather large and mean looking imaginary friend and it comes off as endearing. The video nasties are used here and it's nice as an American to see the troubles other countries go through to see these cheesy gems. Overall a great first issue and I can't wait to see the blood flow in the next installment.

    I had fun with this book. It's a good start to what seems like an interesting series.
