JOE HILL INVADES BLACK LABEL

As Vertigo Leaves Horror Writer Joe Hill Gets his Own Line at DC

The 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.

DC's Black Label "Hill House" imprint kicks off with the new mini-series BASKETFUL OF HEADS #1 (OF 6) which ships with two covers (one standard and one cardstock) and is currently scheduled to arrive on New Comic Wednesday-103019 with a $3.99 standard cover price and a $4.99 cardstock cover price. As always it will be Alternate Reality "1st Day Sale" priced at 25% OFF ($2.99 standard/$3.75 cardstock!) on the 30th and 15% OFF for the rest of its first week of release ($3.39 standard/$4.24 cardstock!) while supplies last.
