Nailbiter Volume 2: Bloody Hands 

Joshua Williamson (Writer), Mike Henderson (Artist), Adam Guzowski (Colourist), John J. Hill (Letterer)

Image Comics, 2015

Slightly unexpected second installment in the series. There are definitely some significant bits of new information: the tunnels that run underneath the town, and the mysterious role played by bees. But the first two issues are standalones with little new information. A pregnant lost soul arrives in town, thinking her baby needs to be born in Buckaroo so they can both become famous; and comics writer Brian Michael Bendis arrives to do research on a new comic. The Bendis issue is a fun episode for fans--and he really is drawn accurately, although I can't attest to the accuracy of the characterization--but neither of these issues advance the story much. The new information includes one other really crazy bit, a bizarre underwater temple that a character sees by accident while saving some schoolkids plunged into the lake by a crazed bus driver. So it's a somewhat disjointed collection, but there are some very intriguing possible future plot points.

Before I read your review I was thinking this was the time were the series kind of lost it way for a while. It did refocus itself, and I got back to being a really good book.

Yeah, I think this collection is a bit of a stumble, but there was enough to make me come back. Glad to hear I won't be disappointed when I do.
