One of several new horror comic books launched at Hill House Comics, Joe Hill's new imprint at DC, Plunge follows a ship crew searching for castaways in the Arctic sea, but as they soon find out, the castaways aren't quite themselves anymore. Featuring a creeping sense of dread reminiscent of John Carpenter's The Thing (and there are definitely some nods to Carpenter's ’82 film to be found here), the second issue of Plunge comes out on March 18th, and ahead of its release, we've been provided with exclusive preview pages as a special treat for Daily Dead readers!

Following the discovery of a dead body, the members of a ship crew discuss their foreboding find (and whether or not the deceased shared some words with a member of their crew) in our exclusive preview pages from Plunge #2.

Created and written by Joe Hill, Plunge #2 features artwork by Stuart Immonen, colors by Dave Stewart, lettering by Deron Bennett, a main cover by Jeremy Wilson, and a variant cover by Gary Frank and Brad Anderson. The second issue of the new series will be released on March 18th. Check out our exclusive preview below, and to learn more, visit:

Synopsis: "After discovering a corpse upon the Sinnikik Atoll, Moriah Lamb leads a team to hunt for other castaways, while Gage Carpenter begins the exploration of the ghost ship Derleth. But there's something down there in the icy darkness of the Arctic sea, something that doesn't want to be found. And it isn't any safer on land. There are things waiting for the search party in the mountain caves, things that were once human...and aren't quite anymore."
