Williamson And Henderson On The Killer Secrets Of 'Nailbiter'
Sixteen of America's most notorious serial killers all came from the small town of Buckaroo, Oregon, and a conspiracy suggests there's a link between them. The most recent "Buckaroo Butcher" was Edward Charles Warren, nicknamed "Nailbiter" for his penchant for chewing his victims' fingers down to the bone --- but after being found not guilty, he resides peacefully in Buckaroo, until an investigation into the conspiracy begins, and a new Butcher makes their presence known. That's the pitch for Joshua Williamson and Mike Henderson's Nailbiter from Image Comics, which along with books like Wytches and Harrow Country, is spearheading a revival for horror comics on the whole. The series returns this week for a new arc beginning in Nailbiter #21 and we caught up with the creative team to discuss the mental toll of living with a town of serial killers in your head, and the evolution of their collaborative process.
