I am so glad we are returning to Buckaroo and its murderous inhabitants. It feels like we never left.

Nailbiter’s daughter Alice is all grown up and faces living in a small town with a serial killer for a father. Some love it, others not so much bit its never made her a target before now. Alice turns to Agent Finch when her mother goes missing and things start to get crazier from there. The artwork does not hold back here at all, I absolutely love it, the close-up torture shots send chills down your back while the two-page spreads are worth taking a moment over and really absorbing the detail especially that bathroom scene.

It looks like all the past serial killers spawned in Buckaroo will be making a reappearance in one form or another with a mysterious puppet master pulling the strings and if this first issue is anything to go by then this is going to be an epic run to easily rival the original story, straight off the bat we are treated to a bombshell reveal that twists where the story was headin so it’s going to keep us on our toes.

An absolutely fantastic first issue.

A 34 year old manchild from Scotland, bravely fighting the on going war between a love of comics and space to keep them. Boxes are filling and thanks to the digital age we live in so is the harddrive! I love finding a new comic to obsess over and rediscovering old comics to immerse myself in from the very first issue. A healthy mix of the seven dwarves of geekdom all wrapped up in one kilted bundle of amusement
