One time, just one time, Alice did what the Dollhouse asked of her...and it turned her life upside down forever. But that wasn't enough for the House. There's another piece of the bargain that she's reneging on and until she gives it what it wants, the House can make matters even worse...for Alice, or anyone unlucky enough to come near her!

    Gross and Locke deliver some beautiful art in this issue. The characters look amazing and I continue to love and admire the visual differences between the story told in the present and the past. The visuals add a layer of drama to the story and work well with the tone. Read Full Review

    Of the two Hill House books so far, The Dollhouse Family #2, by a legendary creative team, is weaving the story that will haunt my nightmares for years to come. That's because it has the perfect blend of supernatural horror and the horrors that real kids encounter every day. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Kate Snchez Dec 11, 2019

    Now two issues in, the min-series is shaping up to be wonderful. That said, I fully hope that there is more about the Dollhouse, more about the magic, and just more about Alice in the next issues. With that being said, The Dollhouse Family #2is a solid entry with a great ending moment. It's hard to do, but each issue has so far ended conclusively. The single issues work entirely by themselves as stories, while also leaving enough thread for the next issue to hold onto when it picks back up. Read Full Review

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Justin Munday Dec 11, 2019

    Time and guilt are the main players in this slow-burn horror that continues to up the stakes in its second issue. Read Full Review

  • 8.0 - Patrick Cavanaugh Dec 11, 2019

    This sophomore chapter keeps the audience both emotionally engaged and mildly terrified at the secrets we will likely unearth as the series continue, confirming that the strength of the debut issue was far more than a fluke. Read Full Review

    I absolutely loved the first issue but I wasn't quite sure what to think about this second one the first few times that I read it, but as I wrote the review I got more into it. We already know that all of the members of the Dollhouse Family had not met each other before they one by one came into the dollhouse, but now we have confirmation that they are all from the same family tree; which starts with Joseph. And then his son Cordwainer, who is now in the dollhouse, and could also be the spawn of the evil beast. So questions are answered and more questions arise, and I'm still looking forward to seeing where it goes. Read Full Review
