    Comic Watch - Nicholas Osborn Nov 15, 2019

    The Plot #2 takes a remarkable setup established in the first issue and dives into a haunting character-driven tale of one family's past wrought with terrors. It's a perfect example of how to follow a powerful issue #1 with a story that pulls readers in without sacrificing any of the thrills that makes the series stand out. Read Full Review

    Comics Bookcase - Zack Quaintance Oct 30, 2019

    The highest compliment I can give this comic is that it doles out more of the same high-quality storytelling we got in the debut. This is, quite simply, a comic that continues to get every choice right. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Nov 20, 2019

    The Plot continues to intrigue but I'm still waiting on the firm hook to turn this into a must-rea book. I like what the writers are bringing to it in work the slow but steady level of tension that's simmering as it feels more natural, especially with the undead that are wandering around all over. Hixson's artwork is the bigger draw for me at the moment because of the earthy tone it has and some really great expressions coming from the characters as things go from bad to worse along the way- especially in the basement. The book definitely has a lot of promise. Read Full Review

    Spartantown - Enrique Rea Nov 4, 2019

    'The Plot' is the type of horror story that gets under your skin. It treats potential supernatural threats as part of the landscape, an ever-present presence that isn't an aberration or an interloper. Instead, it's the ghosts of the past that linger and ingrain themselves in our collective psyche only to manifest themselves as consequences for our choices. 'The Plot' is as much a psychological thriller as it is a ghost story. And it's top-tier storytelling that just keeps unraveling a darker mystery. Suffice to say, 'The Plot' is one of the best comics in any genre right now.  Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Jonathan Cadotte Nov 1, 2019

    The creepy stuff looked creepy and it gave me the creeps, mission accomplished. Past that though I can't say that I'm enjoying how the story is unfolding. It's like looking at something through a sheer curtain: There's something there, but it's frustratingly obscured. Read Full Review
