DC Comics has announced that it is teaming with Joe Hill (Horns, NOS4A2) for a new “pop-up” horror imprint titled Hill House Comics, which is set to launch with five limited series titles in Basketful of Heads (written by Hill with art from Leomacs), The Dollhouse Family (written by Mike Carey with art from Peter Gross), The Low, Low Woods (written by Carmen Maria Machado with art from Dani), Daphne Byrne (written by Laura Marks with art from Kelley Jones), and Plunge (written by Hill).

In addition to the main series, each comic will also feature two-page instalments of a back-up feature entitled Sea Dogs, again written by Hill, which takes place in 1779 during the American Revolution.
“The [British] naval fleet is run by this 90-gun ship, and there’s just nothing Americans could throw at it to destroy it,” Hill says. “So they hit on this desperate plan: Allow three American werewolves to be impressed on board, and then eat the ship from the inside out.”
