Nailbiter #5

by F.D. White on September 04, 2014

This story is goddamn thrilling. No, harrowing.

This story is goddamn harrowing.

After the traumatic events that ended the last issue, this month's issue of Nailbiter simultaneously takes a breather while tossing us further down the rabbit hole. More mysteries begin to develop and just when you think you might know who is behind it all, it all gets flipped on its head. Also, new revelations occur for our main man, Finch. I'm excited to see where that plot thread leads.

It's hard to talk about this book without spoilers, but lets just say that I'm really loving the scenes that occur from the killer's perpsective. They're amazingly done. That's thanks to Mike Henderson's gorgeous art and ability to put the reader directly in the situation they're reading. Instead of felling like a viewer, this book feels like we're inside of Buckaroo, Oregon.

Like I said, it's hard to really talk about this book without spoiling anything. So let me just say this: if you like stories with excitment, great art, and well-developed characters then look into Nailbiter.
