    The Plot #1 is the single best horror comic debut of 2019, and probably the best launch of a new terror series since Gideon Falls. Its a smart and confident story that relies on its characters as much as the supernatural. Its another smash hit in the making from Vault. Read Full Review

    Sirens of Sequentials - CJ Pendragon Sep 7, 2019

    Overall, The Plot #1 is a must-read. With touching themes about family, loss and grief mixed in with long-buried pasts and secrets, it's almost guaranteed that it turns into an emotional rollercoaster that has you on the edge of your seat, with your heart in your throat and jumping when the cat gets in your lap. We see in the first issue a small exploration into adolescent angst, family dysfunction and the challenges of returning to a place where you have a past. A visually gorgeous first issue with top-shelf storytelling, The Plot #1 is absolutely required reading for anyone who claims to be a fan of comics or horror. Read Full Review

    Doom Rocket - Clyde Hall Sep 13, 2019

    It's a sly and foreboding beginning for an appealing horror imprint concept. The first issue showcases a steadfast love for the genre that won't be rushed, cheapened, or compromised for plot advancement. Rich ingredients simmer in the narrative cauldron, destined to come to a bubbling, toiling boil before story's end. Read Full Review
