When DC Comics and Joe Hill announced a partnership in the form of Hill House Comics, fans of horror comic books were naturally excited. Hill’s reputation in the world of comics (as the writer of one of the greatest horror comics in the history of the medium, Locke and Key) immediately gave the new imprint respectability, along with the promise of numerous, varied horror titles over the next year, including the inaugural entry from Hill House Comics, Hill’s very own Basketful of Heads. Hill was kind enough to take some time out of his busy schedule to speak to Horror News Network about his love of comics and his new series and imprint in this exclusive interview.
DC Comics and Joe Hill are providing an early treat to fans this Halloween season with a glimpse at the upcoming Hill House Comics line via a free online sampler. The sampler includes previews of the first title from the imprint, Basketful of Heads, by Joe Hill and Leomacs, as well as The Dollhouse Factory (by Mike Carey and Peter Gross), and The Low, Low Woods (by Carmen Maria Machado with art by Dani).
The sampler also includes previews of two upcoming titles scheduled for 2020: January’s Daphne Byrne (no relation to legendary X-Men artist John Byrne, written by Laura Marks with art by horror-fan favorite Kelley Jones) and February’s Plunge, a six-issue limited series written by Hill and and an artist to be named later. read more
