    This series is magnificent. One of the best sci-fi horror stories ever, in any medium.

    Surprise, surprise:The Nice House on the Lake returns, and it’s a masterclass in dread, unease, and great-paced horror. Tynion, Bueno, and Bellaire are crafting something truly special and haven’t missed a beat since the very first panel.

    The Story: James Tynion IV delivers a dark, disturbing and wildly entertaining story in this issue. I love the increased pressure on the housemates and how it ramps up the tension for the reader. There are some great reveals in this issue and I loved seeing Walter become more of a person in his interactions with Norah and not just the central antagonist that is connected to all the characters. I love the rising tension throughout the issue and how it leads to a beautifully timed and executed (no pun intended) cliffhanger.

    The Art: Alvaro Martinez Bueno continues to captivate the reader visually with stunning art that is both brilliantly detailed and as darkly disturbing as the premise of the series.

    The Nice House on the Lake #10 is all set up – building tension in anticipation of the final act awaiting readers in the final two issues. It’s an impressive bit of clockwork storytelling with two distinct threads winding up in parallel to one another until they converge in a haunting final page bound to destroy this entire setting. From within the machine, Walter explains the god-like degree of control he possesses emphasizing how small motions and acts result in big effects. On the outside the companions continue to explore familiar elements of their environment. Each step forward, even those that have occurred in some fashion before, add to the narrative build and prepare readers for how things inevitably fall apart. Readers will doubtlessly be left craving more at the end of this month’s issue, which shows just how effective its structure is.
