    COMICON

    Considering the main cast of characters get dressed up in fuzzy, fluffy, furry suits, it is a testament of artist Daniel Hillyard’s skills that throughout this final issue, he instills them with such a sense of terror, as we witness the showdown between the furries and the local constabulary. The costumed cannibals versus the corrupt cops. And, with the carefully considered use of shadows and silhouettes, soaking up and obscuring the furries, a real sense of growing tension builds, with blood and gore flying all over the place. As ever, in this blackest of comedy horrors, writer Doug Wagner leaves the best gory details till last. All delivered up with great gusto by Hillyard.

    Wagner and Hillyard, and not for the first time, persuade the reader to invest in Devin and the twisted family he is quickly becoming a part of in a series that is also a romantic tale too. Twisted as that may be, from the very first issue I think we were all rooting for Devin; a victim who finally finds his mettle.

    From the very few first pages, utilising extreme close-ups void of any narration or dialogue, we get a chill thrill from the sight of Devin and company suit up and prepare for the defence of their home. And from there on in we get a well-scripted takedown that feels very cinematic in quality and pacing.

    And while much of the issue is effectively enveloped with shadows, the more pop-art colourings of Rico Renzo give this something of a contemporary, cartoon-like quality that contrasts well with the more adult-themed gore.

    A fun and fulfilling finale that wraps up this particular horror-comedy is grand, gory style.

    Plush has been a fun read since the first issue, where we met the story’s main protagonist Devin Fulcher, a guy whose girlfriend cheated and got impregnated by the town’s deputy Maerth, a douchebag who works for Sheriff Brottman, Whitney’s father. For five issues, Brottman and Maerth have tried their best to make Devin’s life a living hell by blackmailing him and even bullying him into still marrying Whitney and caring for a baby that’s not his. Plush #6 sees Sheriff Brottman, deputy Maerth and a group of gung-ho rednecks the sheriff hired go head to head against Devin and his furry friends in a finale that delivers a blood-curdling ending that you have to see to believe.

    In terms of the artwork, Hillyard’s significant usage of shadow play and gory details with each kill this issue really make the final issue feel like the conclusion to an epic, gory comedy/horror film. His illustrations are in-your-face and unapologetic to the brutal things we see throughout Plush, like decapitations and people cut in half with saw blades. I hope this comic returns for another chapter, as it’s become one of my favorite stories of 2023. The characters were thoroughly enjoyable to watch and learn about, and there’s still so much potential to explore in this series.

    The Super Powered Fancast

    The Story: Violent, bloody, romantic and charming. Wagner brings this story to a satisfying and exciting conclusion filled with great character moments, surprises and an awesome energy that kept me turning each page and going over moments again and again. I really loved Devin’s journey in this series and would love to see these characters return.

    The Art: Hilyard perfectly captures the brilliance and beauty of the story with awesome art that pulls you into the world of these characters and doesn’t let go.

    Plush has been a series unlike anything else I’ve read, and though there aren’t as many surprises in the finale, that didn’t keep it from delivering a brutally fulfilling conclusion. Writer Doug Wagner hits all the right notes and gives fans satisfying payoffs to the battle they’ve all been waiting for, and artist Daniel Hillyard, colorist Rico Renzi, and letterer Ed Dukeshire fill the issue with some of their most best and goriest work yet. The book’s first two pages set the tone of what’s to come brilliantly, and by the end fans will have this particular story wrapped up but will also leave the door open for future possibilities. I was kind of waiting for a big swerve or two, but that never really happened. That’s a small complaint hough, and overall Plush has been an unexpected gem that I’m glad I experienced, and hopefully this isn’t the last time we see this oddball crew.
