    We The Nerdy - Jean-Luc Botbyl Feb 14, 2014

    Ok, so what about the overall story? You know, the one about people being brutally murdered? So that's going places with the way this issue ends! There's a great cliffhanger at the end, and the last few pages really move that plot forwards. But at this point, the real plot that matters is the mythology behind the town, and all the crazy supernatural stuff that's going on behind the scenes. This comic is dark, scary, well written, and well drawn. WHAT MORE DO YOU PEOPLE WANT?! Caitlin Kittredge and Inaki Miranda put together one of the best issues of an already stellar series, so chew on that for a little bit. And then go buy this book, because it's just so good.

    Comic Spectrum - Kevyn Knox Feb 14, 2014

    This latest issue of Coffin Hill is yet another powerful work of sequential art from the fine folks over at Vertigo Comics. Kittridge's skills as a storyteller (mostly known for her dark urban fantasy novels, she cites Raymond Chandler, H.P. Lovecraft, and Neil Gaiman as her biggest influences) and Miranda's slick, gorgeous artwork, as well as more spectacular cover art from cover artist extraordinaire Dave 'The Reverend' Johnson, come together to do exactly what they have done in the previous four issues " make Coffin Hill #5 an extremely fun read from start to finish. This is a series I can't wait for each and every month. Read Full Review

    Bloody Disgusting - Bree Ogden Feb 13, 2014

    This issue is non-stop action filled to the brim with deep emotion. Mirandas art is stunning as always, sexy to perfection. This much has always been clear: Kittredge and Miranda are a duo made in comic book heaven and “Coffin Hill” is their magnificent byproduct. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - CJ Yudelson Feb 13, 2014

    Coming off of a really good last issue Coffin Hill does it again with another strong outing this month. The creative team uses the cris-crossing relationships between our cast of characters to build even more drama and adds the best action we have seen from the series thus far. The result is a very balanced and well paced comic that entertains from start to finish. I'm looking forward to next months conclusion of the first story arc. Read Full Review

    Coffin Hill continues to improve with its newest issue, as the story comes more into focus and the mysteries start to come together. With the end of the first arc coming to a close soon, this is shaping up to be a very interesting conclusion. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Minhquan Nguyen Feb 19, 2014

    Against all odds, the title has convinced me to give it until the end of its first arc to prove itself. I'm not confident it'll be worth it, but at least I'm hopeful. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Marykate Jasper Feb 17, 2014

    In short, "Coffin Hill" is easy to like but tough to invest in. It can skate by on its laurels -- the concept, the atmosphere, the "wow" moments -- for a few more issues, but it's going to need to develop its mythology and its protagonists better if it wants to stick around for the long-term.

    Infinite Comix - Daren Taveras Mar 3, 2014

    Coffin Hill #5 falls flat. It feels like a wrap up issue that leaves more questions unanswered than before. The series has had its ups and downs, but this month's issue is plain boring. Being that this is the penultimate issue of the first arc will make the reader worried about how the loose ends will tie together in a single issue than the actual conclusion itself.
