Black Caravan Imprint: Alison Hart wakes up inside a bright candy-colored room to discover that she's tied down with licorice, small toys around her move because they're alive, and her hands are no longer real. She struggles to piece together the surreal and horrific events that led her to this place and more importantly what has happened to her young daughter, Emma.

    PLAYTHINGS #1 is perfect nightmare fuel for fans of clown horror. The protagonists are created as real people with real problems and real emotions to draw you in. When things go wrong, the subtle, creepy visuals keep you looking over your shoulder in the best (worst?) way. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Ricardo Denis Mar 17, 2022

    Playthings #1 should please fans of classic horror, fairy tales, and 1990s fantasy comics. It establishes a dark event with terrifying potential, full of painful promises that readers can engage with in more ways than one. Issue #2 should satisfy both readers with dark sensibilities and readers who quite simply enjoy a good story. Keep this one on your radar. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Lucas Fashina Mar 20, 2022

    The panels are very trippy. In fact, it reminds me very much of the art style used by Liam Sharp during the Dematteis run of Man-thing (1997). At time very bright, and at other time dark and grungy, to emote not only the sadness of a broken home, but at other times the eerie spookiness of the strange doll running around the house.

    This comic seems to be very much "not my thing," especially as the comic doesn't really seem to be very innovative in either story or style. Read Full Review
