Refrigerator Full Of Heads Is Sequel To Joe Hill's Basketful Of Heads

Locke & Key co-creator Joe Hill has a line of horror comic books he produces from DC Comics called Hill House Comics. We haveen't heard much of it of late as a real-life horror of a pandemic got in the way. But as DC Comics is set to publish a box set collection of all the published stories – including an exclusive collection of the back-up Sea Dogs story, so EW has run with the beginning of another batch of Hill House Comics for Halloween.

Refrigerator Full Of Heads, DC Sequel To Joe Hill's Basketful Of Heads
Refrigerator Full Of Heads

Basketful of Heads, originally written by Hill with art by LEOMACS, is getting a new follow-up series with the new title Refrigerator Full of Heads, to be written by Rio Youers and drawn by Thomas Fowler.

Refrigerator Full of Heads will bring readers back to Brody Island, years after a mysterious axe unleashed violent havoc during the 1983 hurricane detailed in the previous book. Vacationing couple Calvin Beringer and Arlene Fields quickly find themselves face-to-face with some of Brody's more unsavory aspects: On top of that axe, there's also a new sheriff in town, new visitors, and a dangerous Great White Shark spotted off the coast.

Emotionally adrift and living outside her means, the widow becomes easy prey for a group of occultists promising to contact her dead husband.
    While fighting to disentangle her mother from these charlatans, Daphne experiences a genuine supernatural encounter–a strange, insidious presence in her own body.
