There’s a fire burning deep within the ground in Shudder-to-Think, Pennsylvania. There’s a river running through the mountains that makes you forget your life. There’s an old resort called Heaven on Earth, where a group of men like to make women forget. And there are two teenagers named Octavia and El who are determined to put an end to it all. Time is running out.

Writer Carmen Maria Machado (Her Body and Other PartiesIn the Dream House) and artist Dani increase the suspense and the horror in issue #3 of The Low, Low Woods, from DC’s Hill House Comics!

Women with antlers like deer. Men in the woods with no skin. Coal mines, eternally burning underground. Just another day in the town of Shudder-To-Think, PA.

El and Octavia find themselves on two separate paths. One leads to somewhere deep within the Earth, and the other leads to a small green trailer on the edge of town. There, the people of Shudder-to-Think, PA say, lives a witch. For a price, she can change you—and even make you forget that which you no longer wish to remember. But what is the price of remembering that which you have lost?

Plus: Chapter Nine of the murderous werewolves at sea shanty, Sea Dogs, by Joe Hill and Dan McDaid!

El and Octavia’s memories have gone missing. Like so many women in Shudder-To-Think, PA, before them, all they have is a void where the truth once was. But as time passes, El finds herself needing to know more about what has happened, while Octavia wants nothing more than to forget the forgetting. Can these two teenage dirtbags reconcile their differences before the horrible things lurking beneath their town emerge and swallow them whole?

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.
