Nailbiter Returns #7
Writer: Joshua Williamson
Artists: Adam Guzowski and Mike Henderson
As crazy as this series has been so far, this issue decides to throw all reason to the win without straying too far from where you might expect the series to go. In this issue, artist Adam Guzowski gets to show of his creativity with some jarring and bizarre imagery we haven’t seen in this series yet. The lore of Buckaroo was expanded but not yet explained and more information about the backstory of the Nailerbiter himself was teased. This issue gives the reader a lot to unpack and a lot to look forward to.
This issue is particularly spoiler-sensitive so I’ll keep things pretty vague. I can say, with the mildest of spoilers, that the issue opens with a flashback. That’s a pretty normal first page for this series but this issue ends up doing more with it than others. It serves as an entry point for the reader, a bit of dramatic irony, and later becomes pretty important. That’s about all I can say without going into detail. But suffice to say, from there the reader is treated to a trippy journey through the remains of Buckaroo.
Issue #6 ended with it raining blood and this issue continues that absurdity even further. Guzowski does not try to keep his art style tame usually but they rarely stray much. His style is extremely expressive and exaggerates moments to change their effect. Usually that as far from a “normal” style as he’ll go but in this issue, the restraints are off. It is fun to see him go crazy with his art, I am very curious what all was included in the original script. Despite how odd it was, there is no question it was to fit the story.
This issue was another fun entry into the Nailbiter universe and promises more exciting events to come. While it may not have contributed a ton directly to the story, it set up the next issue well and promises to be more important once we know more. I hope anyone who read the original series is keeping up with this one. It is just as great and has yet to disappoint.
Nailbiter Returns #7
This issue teases what has yet to be revealed and treats the reading to bizarre artwork. Recommend it to any fan of the series.
