BOOM! Studios has revealed a first look at MAW #2, the second issue of a provocative five-issue horror series by award-winning journalist and opinion writer Jude Ellison S. Doyle, artist A.L. Kaplan, colorist Fabiana Mascolo, and letterer Cardinal Rae, that explores the anger of those trapped by society’s expectations and the monsters born from that collective rage, available on October 20, 2021.

What happens when the monster within the shadows awakens? After being drugged and abandoned on a beach, Marion struggles with inexplicable and frightening changes to her body while her sister, Wendy, continues to try to fit in with the other women at the commune. As they both learn more about the commune and its mysterious leader, Diana Spiro, each new revelation brings the true nature of her motivations and teachings to light.

MAW #2 features main cover art by artist Ariela Kristantina with Sarah Stern, and variant cover art by acclaimed illustrators E.M. Gist, and Reiko Murakami.

DC’s Hill House Returns with Refrigerator Full of Heads

DC’s Hill House is the comic imprint launched by Joe Hill. Its horror theme kept the line focused on its initial launches. A new series, Refrigerator Full of Heads has been announced from writer Rio Youers and artist Tom Fowler. It’s the first in a new wave of Hill House titles from DC and continues the world of Basketful of Heads one of the initial launch titles.

Refrigerator Full of Heads launches on October 19th and will bring readers back to bloody Brody Island. At the bottom of the bay, the mysterious axe that unleashed violent pandemonium during the hurricane of ’83 has been waiting… but nothing that powerful stays buried.

With a new sheriff, new visitors, and a dangerous Great White Shark spotted off the coast, the pieces are all in place for terror to rise again when vacationing couple Calvin Beringer and Arlene Fields stumble onto the wrong side of Brody’s unsavory elements.

Refrigerator Full of Heads is an off-the-wall delight, with moments that could only happen in the panels of a Hill House comic. Readers will not want to miss where this story goes! Issue one of six will be available in comic book shops on October 19 featuring a cover by Sam Wolfe Connelly and a variant cover by Reiko Murakami.

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!
