DC Comics and Joe Hill Team Up for New Hill House Comics Imprint

This October, DC and best-selling author Joe Hill (NOS4A2Locke & Key) will be bringing some much needed horror to your local comic book shop in the form of Hill House Comics.  The first series in the new “pop-up” line of horror comic books (according to the official press release) will arrive on stands just in time for Halloween with Basketful of Heads, written by Joe Hill with art by Leomacs.

Hill is excited to get back to writing horror comics and stated that “Anyone who’s paying attention knows we’re in the middle of a new golden age of horror: films like Get Out, Hereditary, It Follows, and plain old It have raised the bar higher and higher.  Meanwhile, ongoing shows like AMC’s The Terror and Netflix’s Stranger Things have shattered preconceived notions about what’s possible in episodic terror TV. There’s great stuff happening in comics, of course—in a field of unbounded creativity and wacko visionaries, there’s always great stuff happening—but greedy me wants more.” read more
