rain lashes the grassy dunes of Brody Island, and seagulls scream above the bay.
A slender figure in a raincoat carries a large wicker basket, which looks like
it might be full of melons... covered by a bloodstained scrap of the American
flag. This is the story of June Branch, a young woman trapped with four cunning
criminals who have snatched her boyfriend for deranged reasons of their own. Now
she must fight for her life with the help of an impossible 8th-century Viking
axe that can pass through a man's neck in a single swipe-and leave the severed
head still conscious and capable of supernatural speech. Each disembodied head
has a malevolent story of its own to tell, and it isn't long before June finds
herself in a desperate struggle to hack through their lies and manipulations...
racing to save the man she loves before time runs out. That's the set up for
writer Joe Hill and artist Leomacs first issue of Basketful of Heads, the
premiere series in the Black Label line of Hill House comics. Plus, in the
premiere chapter of the backup story "Sea Dogs," which sails across all the Hill
House Comics titles.
