This is the spoiler free review of Nailbiter, volume 2. To read the review of volume 1 please visit here.
This second volume contains issues 11 through 20
I was hoping that the second volume would make more progress than it did but we’re still with a lot of questions and no answers. I’m still enjoying the premise, art, and gore but am craving more substance.
It is rare that horror transcends beyond its genre. When it does it is one of my favorite things in the world. When it doesn’t, it can still be entertaining. Nailbiter falls into the second category.
It serves up the horror standards of violence and creative murder scenes but never moves to anything more. That’s okay, it’s still a fun read. But it shouldn’t be considered anything more than that.
Strangely enough what I’m enjoying most is reading this book in digital format. With flipping panel by panel instead of page by page there is an almost horror movie effect to the scary imagery which pops onto the screen by surprise.
I can definitely recommend the digital version for this book. I am, of course, biased by my already strong enjoyment of the format but I think this one works really well.
Overall though this seems like a bridge between an intriguing introduction to a hopefully satisfying conclusion but I’ve given up hope on it having anything to say. It’s simply good old fashioned violence as entertainment.
