4 reviews for House of Slaughter #1 collector’s pack (Original Cover + 2 Variant Covers) – Original FIRST PRINTING

  1. Gregory Brothers

    House of Slaughter #1 continues with Tynions streak of successful independent comics. The characters are presented with depth that will lend itself to continued stories. Be sure to grab a copy as soon as you can.

  2. Mikkel Snyder

    While this comic will be most appreciated by avid fans, this issue will serve as a gateway for newer ones as well who can easily become invested in Aaron’s story and want to see more of him. The creative team has constructed a familiar, yet novel sandbox and I look forward to seeing what happens in the coming issues.

  3. Joseph Gilmore

    Tynion set an extremely high bar with Something Is Killing The Children, and it is easily safe to say House of Slaughter #1 met that standard. While House of Slaughter #1 lacks the action we’ve grown accustomed to, it’s the character development and inner conflict that makes this issue stand out.

  4. Deron Generally

    Chris Shehan does amazing work with the art in the issue. The characters look amazing and the action is thrilling. There are some great visual moments and everything leading to the final was stunning.
