DC Black Label House Of Horrors Line Of Comic Books Announced At NYCC 2019

by Koom Kankesan

We all know that good, thoughtful horror movies are nothing to turn our noses up at and DC editor Joe Hill wants to bring a piece of that sensibility to comics. He talked about how these great horror movies (The Exorcist, The Thing, etc.) would come along once every five years when he was a kid but now they come along once every five months – he mentioned Get Out and Hereditary as examples.

The panel, besides Joe Hill, featured: Dani, Laura Marks, Si Spurrier, Aaron Campbell, and Philip Kennedy Johnson. Here are the titles in this line with accompanying photos of the slides so you can see the very strong art on the cover images:

Basketful of Heads written by Joe Hill, art by Leomacs, cover by Reiko Murakami, out on October 30

I also want to put up this amazing production art. The first page is by veteran artist Kelly Jones and the subsequent incredible sketches (which remind me of Alex Toth) are by Dani
