Whoa! That was one Hell of a volume! Full on witch battles and horrible, horrible things happening to our cast... I loved it.

So good. Th intensity ramps up in volume seven, which I assume is the penultimate volume. And as the subtitle says, "Dark Times A' Coming." Maybe I shouldn't say exactly who it is, but in this volume someone . . . related to Emmy returns from the dead to battle her for the soul of Harrow County. The other person brings along her army, and Emmy has her own allies, including a newly emboldened Berenice, her best bud. As Berenice points out, having learned some of Lovey's tricks come in handy!

It all feels like things are coming to a head as forces gather to take out Emmy. Kammi is, of course, resurrected and Emmy and Berenice need to team up to defeat her. There's some heart wrenching moments as not everyone survives. ...And then there's that cliffhanger. Good thing volume 8 is already out so I don't have to wait. Tyler Crook's art really visualizes this story, giving Harrow County a unique look.

Harrow County has been a consistently solid series throughout its run, but with volume 7 Cullen Bunn and Tyler Crook have come up with the best book in the series to date. All the previous storylines come together in a big showdown, characters die, others get hurt, and there’s no turning back for Emmy anymore. I get the feeling that we are moving towards the endgame, and I can’t wait to see how it all plays out.

Another 4.5 star volume. I know Culleen Bunn writes a million things each month, but I think this is by far his crowning achievement.

Feb 08, 2019 rated it it was amazing about death galore. NO one is safe!

Emmy's sister has returned from the dead. What's her mission now? To destroy everything sacred to Emmy. A mass murdering spree begins as she goes after everyone who Emmy loves. Dad? Briance? Even skin boy are all in trouble. Without giving any spoilers this is a action packed fucked up volume.

Good: Everything comes to a head and it's bloody and nasty and worth every moment of character build up. When characters die and you feel the emotion, that m

Bullet Review:

On one hand, a character returns - and it's always a bit cheesy when you supposedly kill a character in an early volume, just to have that person return later in the series. On the other hand, when that resurrection is good and the story is gripping, well, every rule is meant to be broken, amirite?

I loved (and hated!) what happened to Emmy, Berenice, and the Skin Boy. Lots of drama and gore in this one, and it sets up for a nice new storyline that I am eager to see.

Things are moving quickly in Harrow County. Emmy is struggling to maintain the haints while Beatrice is testing her own powers, all while the Family is moving to usurp Emmy, and Hester Beck's return is imminent. Does it feel like things are coming to a conclusion? If so, that's no surprise; Harrow County is ending with its next arc.

This news was a surprise to me, since I don't follow the titles I read outside of when the next collection is due to be released. It also saddens me, because this ser

This review (plus V8) can be found on my blog:

Kammi is back…as if there was any doubt she wouldn’t be! In this penultimate volume, forces are gathering to destroy Emmy and all of Harrow County. Emmy endures two significant losses but has no time to mourn as Kammi is relentless. Bernice fights right alongside her and the two woman do their best to keep Emmy’s “sister” at bay. We find out why Emmy and Kammi are so important to the witch coven, and who they r
That's it, all the available volumes of Harrow County have now been devoured by yours truly. As you've seen from my ratings, I haven't been as excited about the series as I was when I first encountered it. However, apart from one or two missteps (most of these have had something to do with guest artists or unsatisfying plot points), most three star ratings are more like 3.5.

When I said I didn't like the evil twin thing in Vol. 2, I can now sigh from relief, because my wishes have mostly been gra

(Read in single issues) I cannot recommend Harrow County highly enough to horror fans, especially if you like folk horror. It somehow manages to be both deeply charming and disturbing at the same time. Harrow is consistently my favorite monthly comics series and it has only gotten better as it nears its conclusion.

Cullen Bunn outdoes himself in this volume as he ties up the mythology and emotional storylines into one impressive wallop of a story with wonderful engaging characters at its heart.

Good volume.

Re-Read April 2019

“How long? Long enough that a hunger for cruel and bloody vengeance had rooted deep in her heart. And while this was the world of the living, not the dead… she would turn Harrow into hell before she was through.”

so gooooood. Now to decide if I pick up the final single issues, or wait until October for the final trade.

Emmy and Bernice battle a returned Kammi.

This is the best volume yet of this excellent, creepy, disturbing graphic novel series. There are deaths, and endings, and suffering. There's only one volume left in this story and I'll be sad to part with these characters who, along with some fake/haint townsfolk, have come to matter to me. The artwork in this volume, particularly the covers, is wonderful.

You would think by this point the series might have a bit of a let down but this is probably my favorite one yet! Major events in this one as we head to what should be a next great arc. Again this is a pull list must and I read it in single issues.

I just read these issues to see how the story ends. But I was feeling pretty tired. The foes and conflicts have been pretty repetitive for more than ten issues now, and nothing feel fresh or thrilling at all. A shame

Yikes! The series was already dark, but things just got a lot darker. I love the unpredictability, because I really have no idea how this will end, come the final volume.

Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy, HERE is the good stuff. Harrow County finally gets down to business with Emmy and her wicked sister battling to the death. I feel like the last few volumes have all been setup or side plots - thank goodness we're now back in the saddle as Emmy tries to save the soul of Harrow County from her sister and, potentially, from the resurrected Hester. The art in this volume is outstanding, more gorgeous and awful than anything that's come before in this series. It's truly worth ...more

I was beginning to lose interest in this comic but this issue brought back my interest with the battle between Emmy & Bernice with Emmy's sister, Kammi. Definitely looking forward to the next volume as soon as my library obtains it.

This was a pretty intense volume with some great visual work. I really like the magical battles, especially some of Bernice's tricks like the entangling onion and the nail through the footprint. Something I noticed in this volume that I don't remember before is the incorporation of sound-effects into the picture in the same style as the titles are incorporated into the environment on the first page of each chapter.

Apparently the next volume is the last, and this definitely sets up a climax to th

Hot damn and holy hell. When you set up twins in your narrative, you know it'll come to a head and all the duality themes will pay off. That's what we have here in Vol. 7. There is a late game hiccup that I did not anticipate. A particular line a character crossed that makes sense given the narrative debts Bunn and Crook have taken out. I await Vol. 8.

Don't be fooled by the pretty cover folks, it's all in the title of this book: "Dark Times A'Coming", it's getting ever closer to the end of days.

Ever since the beginning of the first book, it was clear the past never had any intention of staying buried for long in this series. In this arc, one of Emmy's greatest adversaries returns in this volume and she unleashes her cruel vengeance upon Emmy and Harrow, both whom will never be the same again. This book is filled with so much pain and heartbre
