DAPHNE BYRNE #1
written by LAURA MARKS
art by KELLEY JONES
cover by PIOTR JAB?ON?SKI
card stock variant cover by YASMINE PUTRI
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?
Writer Laura Marks (TV's Ray Donovan, The Expanse, and The Good Fight) and horror-art legend Kelley Jones (The Sandman, Batman: Red Rain) join forces to unleash spirits from beyond into the Hill House Comics line!

Interessato tantissimo a questo Constantine targato Black Label, potrebbe avvicinarsi molto allo stile Vertigo.

Basketful of Heads #1
Written by Joe Hill
Art by Leomacs and Dave Stewart
Lettering by Deron Bennett
Published by DC's Black Label/Hill House Comics
Review by Justin Partridge
'Rama Rating: 6 out of 10

DC's newest pop-up line kicks off with the surprisingly plotty Basketful of Heads #1. Though imbued with the sort of "everyman" dread that one would expect from author Joe Hill, the first entry into his Hill House Comics imprint is light in real horror, but heavy in set-up. It's September 1983, and a storm coming to Brody Island, Maine. It's an idyllic, affluent, but isolated community; one governed by an outwardly jovial, yet hard-nosed Mayor and noble Sheriff. But to make matters worse, a group of prisoners from the nearby Shawshank Prison have escaped from a work detail and now roam the island free.

We experience all this through the eyes of our main characters Liam, a bright-eyed but well-meaning volunteer deputy, and his psych major girlfriend June, who is down to the island for the weekend. Unfortunately, aside from a bleakly hilarious opening, Basketful of Heads #1 is more groundwork than actual scares. It surely looks fantastic thanks to the classically inspired layouts and character focused expressiveness of Leomacs and colorist Dave Stewart. But with a name like Basketful of Heads, one would expect at least one beheading in the opening issue, right?

Starting with the good, Basketful of Heads #1 is a classic slasher movie set-up. We have an isolated setting, about to be made even more so by the oncoming storm. We have a whole heap of suspects in the escaped Shawshank prisoners (which in itself is a pretty canny shout-out to Hill's father, the iconic Stephen King). We even have two oblivious leads in Liam and June, both of whom are too wrapped up in getting hot and heavy with one another.

And the whole of the opening issue look tremendous thanks to Leomacs and horror comics staple Dave Stewart. Though much of the script is focused on expository scenes and character building, the art team draws us deep into the Island thanks to their carefully constructed, grounded set construction and life-like character models. Stewart also outdoes himself, leaning into the amber-gris warmth of the "last night of summer" and rich blue-blacks once the storm clouds roll in.

Unfortunately, Joe Hill never really upshifts with any of it. Though we start on a high point, seeing the titular basket and it's bickering contents, being transported through the driving rain by a hooded and armed stranger. This opening is another real high point for the art team, capped off the ghoulish "logo" and credit page of the title. But from there we spend the rest of the issue's page-count in the "Before," when the sun was still shining and the basket empty and unseen. Hill uses the majority of these scenes to introduce the rest of the cast, mainly the Sheriff's unconventional family and their stately, artifact-filled mansion, but it's all firmly set in exposition mode. Which is a bummer considering the garish promise of the cold open and the gleefully pulpy title. It does evoke the folksy, hyperspecific mode of horror of Hill and King's brands, but I just wish this first issue had a little more blood to spill to really kick off this imprint properly.

Though not a complete wash, as it looks appropriately old-school both in its striking layouts and rich artwork, Basketful of Heads #1 is a disappointment. Which is a shame, both for lovers of creator-owned horror and horror-focused imprints. Joe Hill is clearly playing a longer game and in prose, you can get away with that. (Hell, even in comics sometimes. Just look at his Locke & Key.) But this opening issue is weirdly restrained for the horror maven and for the opening salvo of a whole line of comics. Hopefully next issue we can get more of the pulp and slasher antics promised, but for now, Basketful of Heads #1 isn't nearly as fun as it sounds.

The Last God #1
Inizio molto convincente per questa serie high fantasy con elementi horror piuttosto derivativa rispetto a certi classici della letteratura di genere, ma comunque ben scritta e coadiuvata da ottime matite.
Non c'è stato tanto spazio per offrire una panoramica generale sull'ambientazione, che mi aspetto arrivi più avanti, ma le premesse sembrano buone. Trattandosi comunque di una mini in tre numeri mi sarei aspettata qualcosa di più sulla caratterizzazione del protagonista e di qualche altro personaggi centrale.
Assieme a Far Sector e alla mini di Wondie mi sembra comunque la serie più interessante di Black Label per quest'anno.

Basketful of Heads #1

Letto e mi è piaciuto. Essendo il primo numero ovviamente è presto per giudicare ma non è niente di complicato.
Si prende a piene mani dai classici Slasher Movie e nel finale la minaccia incombe.
Belli i disegni.

Aspetto i prossimi numeri per ragionarci meglio :sisi:
