This one is available now, written by Joe Hill, with art by Leomacs and cover by Reiko Murakami. If this has caught your attention, there is plenty more Hill House where that came from. Here’s another trailer to preview even more titles:
Here’s even more info on some of these titles:
THE DOLLHOUSE FAMILY – written by Mike Carey, with art by Peter Gross and Vince Locke, with covers by Jessica Dalva (featuring dollhouses Dalva has built by hand), debuts on November 13. On Alice’s sixth birthday, her dying great-aunt sends her the birthday gift she didn’t know she always wanted: a big, beautiful 19th-century dollhouse, complete with a family of antique dolls. In hardly any time at all, the dollhouse isn’t just Alice’s favorite toy…it’s her whole world.
Soon young Alice learns she can enter the house, to visit a new group of friends, straight out of a heartwarming children’s novel: The Dollhouse family. As the years pass, Alice finds herself visiting their world more frequently, slowly losing track of where reality ends and make-believe begins. What starts as play concludes in an eruption of madness and violence. The house can offer her a shelter from all her sorrows…but only if she gives it what it wants, and god help her if she tries to walk away again…
THE LOW, LOW WOODS – On December 18, bestselling author Carmen Maria Machado and artist Dani bring you this spooky series, featuring covers by Sam Wolfe Connelly and J.A.W. Cooper.
When you live in a Pennsylvania coal-mining town called Shudder-To-Think, there’s bound to be stories to tell, especially when the coal mines underneath it have literally been on fire for years. Two local teens, El and Octavia, wake up in a movie theater with no memory of the last hours of their lives, they begin a surreal and terrifying journey to discover the strange truth about their hometown, encountering human-eyed rabbits, a deer woman with a taste for humans, and swaths of skinless men along the way.
I hope your screams are screams of joy.
