If you like horror I think you will enjoy this comic a lot. I have read Joshua Williamson's currently running comic book Birthright and I am loving every single thing of it right now. I needed to get my hands on something else that he has written. Nailbiter just came out with this special Hardcover edition of it's first 10 issues and I couldn't help it and graved myself a copy of it. I wasn't disappointed at all. This new series is just amazing. Now I am trying to get my hands at anything that Williamson writes.

This book is good to read in trades. I don't think I would have been able to read this as single issues. Each issue would have been horrible to wait for. The mystery behind the series pulls you into the story. The art in the story is great. Perfect for the story but it's really gory. If you don't really like seeing cruel gory things than this comic book series may not be for you.

What draws me into the story is the mystery of the town. Which is what the story is about. How did this town have created so many serial killers? That itself is what intrigues me about the mystery of the story. How is it that so many people in a town became such cruel people. If you like the mystery and the phycology of it all. The ending of this volume left me in a clip hanger.

I like the flow of the series also. It doesn't feel like it's dragging or if it's just being slowed down. It's a great read and recommend people to read it if you like horror novels and horror films.
