Synopsis: JOSHUA WILLIAMSON (GHOSTED) & MIKE HENDERSON deliver a mystery that mixes Twin Peaks with the horror of Se7en!

Buckaroo, Oregon has given birth to sixteen of the vilest serial killers in the world. An obsessed FBI profiler investigating the town has suddenly gone missing, and now an NSA Agent must work with the notorious serial killer Edward “Nailbiter” Warren to find his friend and solve the mystery of “Where do serial killers come from?”


Our Thoughts: Nailbiter is a very interesting concept. It is set in the town of Buckaroo, Oregon which is THE birthplace of serial killers, sixteen of them to be exact. What is it about this town that breeds these killers? The first issue introduces us to some main characters and gives us our first glimpse of this dreaded town.


Joshua Williamson crafts a brilliant first issue that is packed with action and crazed killers. He is joined by artist, Mike Henderson whose art is absolutely fabulous and it fits this book perfectly.


Nailbiter #1 is a great issue and this has the looks of a potential spectacular series from Image Comics. We are eagerly awaiting issue two! Do yourself a favor and pick up this title before it disappears from the shelf!
