Cover Artist:  Mike Henderson and Adam Guzowski

Review:  ★★★★☆

Williamson and Henderson can consistently write dark, psychopathic scenes that are just such a delight.  Boy is this issue full of those.  With a new serial killer on the loose and everyone believing Buckaroo is linked, Agent Barker gets a new assignment.  Of course her time in Buckaroo still haunts her as she imagines violently murdering everyone around her.  The scenes are so gruesome, but so much fun.  The titular killer doesn’t make an appearance, though Sheriff Crane takes his previous advice in checking out Doctor Glory.  She finds what looks to be a very deep connection between him and the killers.  Nailbiter is not the type of horror story that will leave you scared.  However, it does know how to play the genre for fantastic effect.
