ROAD TRIP! The cannibalistic furries have abducted Devin away on a fiery SWAT van road trip to visit the group’s creepy mansion of horrors. Keebler drives and Scratch rides shotgun as Kasha and Devin argue whether he’s suitable enough to eat or not.
COMICON‘Plush’ #3 sees our hapless hero and seemingly Stockholm Syndrome suffering doofus, Devin, follow his cannibal killing saviours to their family home. And, as you’d expect, it’s not the cosiest of dwellings. Humour, horror and… hopeless romance? Coming from the usual gang of idiots, Doug Wagner and Daniel Hillyard.
The Comicbook DispatchPLUSH is a series that almost certainly isn’t getting the attention it deserves. It’s a fun comic to be sure with a darkly comedic premise. But as PLUSH #3 shows, there is a lot more going on here. The furry costumes and the cannibalism probably gets the reader to open the book, but once they do they’ll discover a funny, fresh, and surprisingly smart series.
The Super Powered FancastThe Story: Wagner continues to craft a fun, funny and violently surreal story in this issue with a plot filled with interesting characters and a wild world that draws you in. I like the characters a lot and there are so many strange moments that are endearing in a weird way. I find myself invested in this tale and cannot wait to see where it goes next. The Art: Hilyard delivers some beautifully detailed and disturbing art throughout the issue and I love the style of the art and its characters. There are small moments that stuck with me visually and I enjoyed that a lot.
ComicBook.comPlush continues to baffle me in a lot of ways, but that's actually one of its charms. Doug Wagner, Daniel Hillyard, Rico Renzi, and Ed Dukeshire have created a truly one of a kind world that is disturbing in all sorts of ways and yet I can't take my eyes off it. The relationships at play are mysterious and fascinating, and the artwork is all sorts of gory and brutal and yet it doesn't quite go so far over that line as to put me off of it completely. And that battle is going to be absurd in all the best ways, so while I don't exactly know what to make of Plush just yet, I do know I'm all in on finding out.
