Hill House Comics
After discovering a corpse upon the Sinnikik Atoll, Moriah Lamb leads a team to hunt for other castaways, while Gage Carpenter begins the exploration of the ghost ship Derleth. But there's something down there in the icy darkness of the Arctic sea, something that doesn't want to be found. And it isn't any safer on land. There are things waiting for the search party in the mountain caves, things that were once human...and aren't quite anymore.

    After this second issue, Plunge may be my favorite Hill House Comic yet. It captures your imagination and runs wild with its horrors. Read Full Review

    Joe Hill is doing something wonderful with Hill House. He is reinventing things we thought we knew. He set us up in issue 1 for a different kind of horror than what he delivers in Plunge #2. He dropped glowing eyed, worm infested, math zombies. That's right. You need to have a cursory knowledge of math to read this book. That doesn't even bug me it is just that good. Bravo Mr. Hill, Bravo! Read Full Review

    With four issues left and an island full of questions that need answers, Hill continues to move the story along at a brisk and captivating pace. There's lots of interesting threads pulling this story together, and readers will want to stick around to find out what the Carpenter Salvage crew pulls out of the water next issue. Read Full Review

    Id love to be more critical of this issue and this series as a whole but I really dont feel that giving anything less than the rating below would be doing it, or the creative team, justice. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Joey Casco CSW/CSS Mar 18, 2020

    What the freakin' hell? Talking centipedes that come out of peoples faces, enormous sea monsters living in sunken ships, and zombies lighting floating ships on fire. Joe Hill does a great job of giving each character their own voice, and the art is just so good! So far this series has been a must-read. Also, I learned about something that I was not aware of: fire retardant grenades. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Mar 18, 2020

    Joe Hill is following the classic haunted house model with this title, and adding a unique new setting that lends itself to some heavy-duty horror. The last book in the Hill House line is turning into one of the best. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Mar 18, 2020

    Plunge #2 continues the psychological horror thriller adding to the mystery of it all and going for unease instead of scares. It delivers a fantastic mix of characters and settings with a look that helps create a creepy tone. This is a must for those that enjoy this sort of horror and for even those that don't.

    But Why Tho? - Charles Hartford Mar 18, 2020

    Even though it treads mostly well worn paths it does it with enough skill to allow the reader to appreciate why they are so well trodden. Read Full Review

  • 8.0 - Patrick Cavanaugh Mar 18, 2020

    Much like the debut issue, this second chapter into the series continues to blend a number of polar, aquatic, and undead horror tropes into a compelling new narrative, though this installment was much wordier than its predecessor, which Joe Hill fans will likely appreciate while other riders might find it difficult to digest.
