Some of the most popular horror stories are stories of serial killers. Whether it’s the hockey-masked Jason from the Friday the 13th series, the cultured sociopath Hannibal Lecter from The Silence of the Lambs, or the absurdly psychotic Jigsaw from the Saw franchise, these characters are interesting to us…perhaps for dark reasons. This week’s “Frightfully Good Read” is a newcomer to this genre: Joshua Williamson and Mike Henderson’s Nailbiter.
Nailbiter hits all of the notes of a serial killer horror story: it is a very gory, incredibly suspenseful, psychologically horrifying series. The town of Buckaroo, Oregon is home to the worst serial killers in history. With the help of the notorious Edward “Nailbiter” Warren, NSA Agent Nicolas Finch is beginning to uncover the reason(s) why Buckaroo is home to such a bloody past.
Williamson’s writing and Henderson’s artwork very quickly drives this series into a dark and bloody corner of comic books. We won't go too far into the story--we've already said too much---so take our advice: read this series! You can find it on the Money Back Guarantee Rack for just $9.99!
