Nailbiter Volume 1: There Will Be Blood by Joshua Williamson and Mike Henderson

Welcome to Buckaroo, Oregon, the birthplace of serial killers; 16 so far, known as the Buckaroo Butchers these lunatics have been around for some 100 years.

The story starts off with FBI Profiler Eliot Carroll arresting the latest Buckaroo Butcher, #16 Edward "Nailbiter" Charles Warren ("Nailbiter" tells you all about his method); the story then jumps 3 years to Carroll calling on his NSA friend Nicholas Finch telling him he's figured it out. The mystery behind why so many psychos come from Buckaroo is about to be revealed, NOT! Come on if it was that quick there's no series.

Finch arrives in Buckaroo and there he meets Alice a teenager being harassed by some jocks and Sheriff Shannon Crane. Upon his arrival he finds his friend is missing and this town is full of bat shit crazies that all have some relation to one of the past Butchers.

Now Finch must find his friend and who the new psycho trying to put the axe on this investigation is. 

The story is interesting, it's engaging and it's such a page turner. The illustrations are a bit gory, so obviously it's not for youth readers or those with weak stomachs, but other than that, this is a must read. Fans of horror movies will definitely love this series.
