Page 45 Review by Stephen

THE NICE HOUSE ON THE LAKE vol 2 is in, and it's exceptional on every level - Tynion's exploration of individual friendships, group dynamics and differing, often conflicting perspectives far, far more astute and eloquently expressed here than anything else I've seen him put his mind to, while Alvaro Martinez Bueno and Jordie Bellaire take my breath away with their immersive, majestic landscapes and terrific character acting / direction - so I'm going to whip two mini-reviews with interior art to your right which you click on to enlarge.

You might want to read the publisher's blurb before you look at those stunning pieces:

"Everyone who was invited to the house knows Walter well, they know him a little, anyway. Some met him in childhood; some met him months ago. And Walter's always been a little off.

But after the hardest year of their lives, nobody was going to turn down Walter s invitation to an astonishingly beautiful house in the woods, overlooking an enormous sylvan lake. It s beautiful, it s opulent, it s private so a week of putting up with Walter's weird little schemes and nicknames in exchange for the vacation of a lifetime? Why not? All of them were at that moment in their lives when they could feel themselves pulling away from their other friends; wouldn't a chance to reconnect be nice? In The Nice House on the Lake, the overriding anxieties of the 21st century get a terrifying new face and it might just be the face of the person you once trusted most."

Now, one of those spreads looks a little startling, doesn't?

I've written a bit more - about the art and behavioural observation - for book two.
