NAILBITER'S NEW STORY ARC BEGINS IN MAY
It's no secret I love Nailbiter. The book has been my top pick for best horror comic of the year for both 2014 and 2015 and it's well deserved. The series, written by Joshua Williamson and illustrated by Mike Henderson, follows NSA Agent Nicholas Finch as he delves into the mystery of the small town of Buckaroo, Oregon, the birthplace of sixteen of the world's worst serial killers. Since he's started down this path, a new serial killer has emerged and there have been so many bodies. The book is set to begin its third year, kicking off a new story arc in May with issue #21. Bound in Blood picks up with Alice, who has just found out who her real father is.
"It's awesome that we're starting year three of Nailbiter! The team and I are so thankful to the readers and retailers for keeping us alive and killing for the last two years,” said Williamson. “We've been building to the Bound by Blood story arc since the beginning, slowly revealing the secret relationships between the characters. And now with this story arc we focus on Alice as she learns some dark truths about her past. The only way for her to know everything is if she solves the town's big secret...why does it give birth to so many serial killers? How has it been hidden for so long? Crazy things are going to be revealed in this story arc...and it's going to be very bloody!"

"Another year, another arc, another murder spree!” said Henderson. “We can't thank everyone who's kept Nailbiter going strong enough but just to try: Alice takes center stage and learns some new things about her ever-weirder world and the result is some of our darkest and bloodiest yet."
Just look at that gorgeous cover from Henderson! This will be the third time that pose has appeared on a cover and it's still so friggin' creepy. What's amazing with Nailbiter is that the creators keep upping the ante. Each successive arc is bigger and bloodier than the last. Goddamn, I can't wait for this.
