    Yes! Harrow County’s back! Set about a decade after the end of the original series, Tales from Harrow County is a worthy successor. It’s still written by Cullen Bunn, so the new book still feels like HC of old and Naomi Franquiz’s lovely, fully painted artwork isn’t that different from Tyler Crook’s so the change of artist isn’t at all jarring.This first four-parter was a creepy variation on the old Monkey’s Paw ghost story and I really enjoyed it. I’m really looking forward to seeing where this Yes! Harrow County’s back! Set about a decade after the end of the original series, Tales from Harrow County is a worthy successor.

I’m really looking forward to seeing where this book goes, particularly after that final page teaser! A great start!

    Interesting/lovely mix of history and Sci Fi. I'm intrigued enough to continue on!

    I thought this would stand apart enough from the long running series for me to enjoy on its own. And, while it might not stand quite far enough apart for me to understand everything that has/is happening in Harrow County, this volume makes me want to read more tales about Bernice and the County.I admit to just a little knowledge of African American folklore, and even American folklore as it seems Norse and Roman myths have taken up a lot of shelf space (or it felt that way growing up).

So, I really enjoyed what felt like Bunn taking pieces of American folklore and weaving it into a moving tale of the supernatural in a very small rural county. Plus, damn I like Bernice's grit (oh, wait am I going to get into trouble for using that phrase?).

    When I finished the initial run of Harrow County I felt it wrapped up nicely and didn’t leave much room for continuation. Tales from Harrow Country proves how wrong I was. This story sees Emmy’s best friend, and now protector of Harrow County, Bernice take centre stage. Whilst it is a case of ‘more of the same’ from Cullen Bunn it is no less engaging and well written. Using the back drop of gothic horror and Americana is nothing new but Bunn makes Bernice’s adventures feel fresh and exciting.

The art from Tyler Crook and Naomi Franquiz is excellent and helps further establish the world of Harrow County. It ends on a cliff hanger so I am impatiently awaiting more adventures. Side note- I loved having more Priscilla.

    Yay so glad this series is back. From the title I thought this was going to be several short stories (like they used to have in the back of the original Harrow County issues) but it's all one continuous story. The art is as beautiful as ever. Loved the colors. Would've wanted more spook and creepiness but this is only the first volume. Interesting to see black lesbian representation in the WWII era. I received a free e-arc from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

    A nice addition that doesn't try to retell the original series or lean on the original series. I liked the addition of goblin magic and the pulling away from witchy blood magic.Oh, and war time lesbian romance. Nice.
