Hill House Comics continues to grow like a festering sore with the publication of Daphne Byrne #1 this week from writers Joe Hill and Laura Marks with art provided by one of comics’ masters of horror, Kelley Jones. With these unlettered pages to preview, you really get a great look at Jones’s moody Gothic art which really helps see the book, alongside Joe Hill’s name, of course. Will you be possessed enough to pick up a copy of this haunting comic this Wednesday 8th January?
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?
