    Maintaining the high standards of the first issue was a tough ask, but Powell and Wiesch have delivered a stunning hammer blow to the temple as a follow-up. If you like your revenge-fuelled crime stories brutal and uncompromising, look no further. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Dustin Cabeal Apr 8, 2015

    I almost feel like I'm cheating this series by having such a short review, but I don't want to tell you anything else about it. I mean I do. I want to tell you all about what Big Man does with that hammer. Oh man, do I ever. I want to tell you about what happens to him the next time he goes to use it. I want to tell you about every damn page of this comic, but more than anything I want you to read it and enjoy it for yourself. I want you to tell your friends and have them look at you like you're a crazy asshole and then read it for themselves and suddenly you start the "Holy Shit Book Club" and your first book is Big Man Plans" because gah! It's so fucking great. Give it a shot, if you don't like it then take a hammer to your head and read it again. Read Full Review

    After a first issue that seemed to get off track from its story and focus on the protagonist the second issue has come on strong and won't let its revenge filled heart let you go. Read Full Review

    Big Man Plans is a gem of a miniseries that doesn't pull any punches and has you rooting for the pissed off dwarf with the drywall hammer. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - John McCubbin Apr 8, 2015

    Big Man Plans may still have some work to be done, before it becomes a must have, but it's gripping character development, and intense action is definitely sending it there. This is also complemented by beautiful art, with Powell and Wiesch's vision captivating throughout. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Kierra Prince Apr 8, 2015

    My only complaint with issue #2 is that it can't measure up to the greatness that was the first issue. Issue #1 ofBig Man Plans had so much going on and was so shocking that issue #2 seems slow in comparison. We had a wonderful look into Big Man's past that was almost overflowing with violence that the second issue seems almost tame. I understand that Powell and Wiesch needed to pull back a bit to actually give us a story but after an issue like the first, I found myself wishing for more. Read Full Review
