Hill House Comics Brings New Terror from Beneath the Waves in Plunge!

What happens when you combine horror icon Joe Hill (Basketful of Heads, Locke & Key), the return of legendary artist Stuart Immonen (Superman: Secret Identity), covers by Jeremy Wilson, variant covers by Gary Frank, the tension of deep sea exploration, mysterious cargo and the innate fear of sharks, together in one package?

You get the next spine-tingling launch from DC’s Hill House Comics, Plunge!

In the aftermath of a devastating tsunami, an exploration vessel known as the Derleth begins sending an automated distress signal from a remote atoll in the Bering Strait. The only problem is that the Derleth has been missing for 40 years. Marine biologist Moriah Lamb joins the Carpenter Salvage team to recover the Derleth’s dead…only to find that in this remote part of the Arctic Circle the dead have plenty to say to the living…

Joe Hill, Stuart Immonen, Dave Stewart and Deron Bennett’s plunge into terror begins here, featuring covers by Jeremy Wilson and variant covers by Gary Frank!

Can these two teenage dirtbags reconcile their differences before the horrible things lurking beneath their town emerge and swallow them whole?

In the gaslit splendor of late 19th-century New York, rage builds inside 14-year-old Daphne. The sudden death of her father has left her alone with her irresponsible, grief-stricken mother-who becomes easy prey for a group of occultists promising to contact her dead husband. While fighting to disentangle her mother from these charlatans, Daphne begins to sense a strange, insidious presence in her own body…an entity with unspeakable appetites. What does “Brother” want? And could she even stop him if she tried?

Writer Laura Marks (TV’s Ray Donovan, The Expanse, and The Good Fight) and horror-art legend Kelley Jones (The Sandman, Batman: Red Rain) join forces to unleash spirits from beyond into the Hill House Comics line!

Shudder-To-Think, PA, has been on fire for years. The coal mines beneath it are long since abandoned. The woods are full of rabbits with human eyes, a deer woman who stalks hungry girls, and swaths of skinless men. And the people in Shudder-to-Think? Well, they’re not doing so well either. When El and Octavia wake up in a movie theater with no memory of the last few hours of their lives, the two teenage dirtbags begin a surreal and terrifying journey to discover the truth about the strange town that they call home.

DC and Hill House Comics present the comics debut of award-winning, bestselling horror writer Carmen Maria Machado (Her Body and Other Parties, In the Dream House). THE LOW, LOW WOODS explores body horror down paths yet unexplored in comics. It will leave readers searching for their way back home and terrified of what they find changed upon their return.

Basketful of Heads continues as a seven-issue miniseries! June Branch has been hunted, haunted, and desperate; she’s got an ancient Viking axe with mystical properties and a severed head in a basket that won’t shut up. If she can’t make her traveling companion be quiet, maybe she can get some answers out of him…answers that might spell the difference between life and death. But getting him to talk is one thing, and getting the truth out of him is another. He’s a decapitated devil who’d like nothing more than to lead June astray-and with three other killers out to finish her off, so she has no room for error. The comic with the sharpest edge in horror returns for another swing of the axe!

A voice called from the other side. She answered.

It’s Victorian-era New York, and 14-year-old Daphne Byrne’s father has died, leaving her alone with a mother who’s consumed by grief. This combination makes her an easy target for a group of occultists that promise to help her communicate with her dead husband. Daphne sees this for the sham that it is—and as she tries to uncouple her mother from these hucksters, her rage and frustration begins to manifest as a strange and hungering presence within her. The needs and appetites of the entity she comes to know as “Brother” will be met, and Daphne may not be strong enough to stave him off…

…and she might not want to…

Written by Laura Marks (Ray Donovan, The Expanse, The Good Fight) with art by iconic horror artist Kelley Jones (Batman & Dracula: Red Rain, Swamp Thing, The Sandman) and colorist Michelle Madsen, this six-issue miniseries combines the occult, ghosts, seances, possession, and revenge into a miniseries guaranteed to make you read it with the lights on.

Hill House Comics: It’s OK if you need to scream.
