This week, Chris and Matt talk about how much they love Big Trouble in Little China, and how much they enjoyed the first issue of the new comic sequel by Eric Powell and Brian Churilla in spite of some art hiccups; then it's on to Nailbiter #2 by Joshua Williamson and Mike Henderson; and finally they discuss the first volume of Afterlife With Archie by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and Francesco Francavilla.
This week marks the release of the first issue of Nailbiter, a new Image Comics series from writer Joshua Williamson and artist Mike Henderson that examines how a sleepy town in Oregon called Buckaroo could be the home to more than a dozen serial killers. Though the cover to the first issue is a rather shocking depiction of violence, the series itself is more than just blood and guts. Nailbiter digs deep into what serial killing does to the families and neighbors of the people who commit those crimes as much as it does the killers themselves.
ComicsAlliance sat down in a noisy concourse at this year's C2E2 in Chicago with Williamson to talk about Nailbiter, what inspired it, and how he's perhaps upending reader expectations.
