    It's exciting to see more Harrow County on the shelf. It's 10 years later, Emmy's gone and Berenice is now taking center stage. She's grown up, still helping the folks of Harrow County.

Franquiz looks like she painted then over her pencils, where Crook's looked ingrained in the page, but I'm sure she'll get there. I did really like her period costume designs and attention to detail. It really transports you to the era. Received a review copy from Dark Horse and Edelweiss. All thoughts are my own and in no way influenced by the aforementioned.

    After concluding the highly successful rural horror comics series written by Cullen Bunn and illustrated by Tyler Crooks, we return to the town where Emmy is gone, her friend Berenice is the central character and Naomi Franquiz replaces Crooks as the artist. The tale is now set in WWII when a lot of men are dying and their spirits are returning home. What is Berenice going to do about it to make the spirits welcome and the town feel sfa?

The tale is now set in WWII when a lot of men are dying and their spirits are returning home. What is Berenice going to do about it to make the spirits welcome and the town feel sfa? So when you replace an artist who is so amazing on a series such as Crooks you take a risk of course, and usually it does not work out with readers, but Franquiz makes it clear she wants us to be back in a recognizable world and within the ballpark of Crook's impressionistic mood-making, and I'll say it is good enough not to be too jarring. She's not as good, but she is in there. After all, I am also rereading now Sandman where artists change every volume, and I usually love or at least like it, so I am pretty tolerant. I'll read on and see if I can live in the world fully again. I'd like that.

    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!

    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?).

    While not as engrossing as the previous series the art is still top notch and the character work is great. The central part of the dead returning actually had a more somber and sad experience to it verses scary. I enjoyed that part of it and watching some of our older characters grow up and see how they react to the world now. The ending leaves for some interesting future installments and while I didn't fall in love with this volume like most of the others in the original series, it was still wo While not as engrossing as the previous series the art is still top notch and the character work is great.

    This was a welcome continuation of the spooky series with the action taking place during World War II. The artwork was fine, and Bernice makes a compelling heroine. I liked how some pages said it all with no words in sight. Harrow County . . . yet another place I like to visit, but I'm sure glad I don't live there.

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

    Harrow County is back, and it’s just as good even without Emmy as the protagonist. The book now follows Bernice about ten years after the events of the original series, as she keeps the town protected from evil magic and witchery. It’s a pretty simple story, but it’s a good one, very fitting with the rest of the series. Tyler Crook’s art is gone, but Naomi Franquiz does just as great a job as he did — in fact, it looks remarkably similar most of the time. I really enjoyed it.

The only unfortunate thing is that there are no apparent signs of more issues to come, and one of the best things about the original series was its consistency in schedule. I’m really eager to red more, so I hope they come out sooner rather than later.

    Was an ok side story. The ending promises more to come. 3 stars.

    A good but slightly mediocre start to this spinoff series. The story is more sad than horrifying and lacks the polish & charm of ambling southern gothic storytelling that Cullen Bunn gave to the original Harrow County series. Naomi Franquiz’s art doesn’t compare to Tyler Crook’s masterpieces. Solid but a bit disappointing in comparison to the original series. A good but slightly mediocre start to this spinoff series.

    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.

    Harrow County was a great series, and Bunn certainly left the door open for more stories. This is the first of those stories, set some years later during World War II when Bernice is the local witch. Ghosts, mainly dead soldiers, being showing up, and it’s up to Bernice to figure out why. I though this was a decent read. Bunn’s writing flows nicely (he’s one of the best writers of Southern dialect) and there’s nothing outwardly wrong about the plot or anything. It’s just a bit predictable, not a Harrow County was a great series, and Bunn certainly left the door open for more stories.

While very good, it’s not as stunning or smooth as Crook’s. She has the misfortune of following him.

    Harrow County is one of my favorite quarantine discoveries and am glad it is back with this sequel limited series. Like the main series, this book was fun, tightly plotted with creepy imagery. Naomi Franquiz replaces main artist Tyler Crook and does a phenomenal job, taking established characters and making them her own. This is a standalone story but reading the prior series will definitely help especially as this hints at a sequel in the final page which is more closely tied in with the origina Harrow County is one of my favorite quarantine discoveries and am glad it is back with this sequel limited series.

Think of the Captain Marvel movie and the end credits scene where shows up at Avengers headquarters.

    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.

    Harrow County is back!!!! Ten years after the events of original series, we follow an adult Bernice as she finds herself dealing with one of the trickiest (and scariest) situations she's had to deal with since Emmy left. (Where is that girl anyway? Well judging by that cliffhanger, maybe soon we'll find out). A ghostly choir is resurrecting Harrow's dead with a strange hymn. Can Bernice put a stop to whatever dark force is at work before something best left six feet under is brought back to life Harrow County is back!!!!

Can Bernice put a stop to whatever dark force is at work before something best left six feet under is brought back to life? The legendary Tyler Crook may not be on art duties for this spin-off, but artist Naomi Franquiz takes the reins and makes the world her own. Her art is just amazing, she uses watercolor and a color palette that very similar to Crooks. There's no mistaking this is still Harrow County, and it's great to visit this county again.
