Panelology is a weekly podcast about comics. We talk about current books, what we're looking forward to, and how to get into reading comics in the first place.

Nailbiter: “Blood Lust” (Image Comics, 2014; #16-20)

After reading through this week’s gigantic stack of new comics, I wanted something to cleanse the palate.  Somehow, that meant more of Nailbiter's serial killer mystery.

  • Finch and Barker go down to Georgia to hunt the Devil Killer, and they meet Buckaroo native Daniel Webster.
  • Meanwhile, Sheriff Crane does some investigating on her own.
  • More clues are coming into the foreground, but the answers aren’t out there yet.
  • Williamson is more playful in his suspense in this arc, giving the reader a relative quiet before the inevitable storm.
  • The same goes for Henderson and Guzowski’s pages, especially when they get to play with more paranormal elements than normal
  • This is one of my favorite suspense/horror/mystery-type books at this point.  If you like those things, you should check it out.
