    It’s September 1983, ‘cos the ‘80s is in these days, in a small coastal Maine town and June and her cop boyfriend Liam are busy being young and sexy. BUT DEN. Some inmates from the local prison break out - wuh oh! And then a storm hits, stranding everyone on the small archipelago - say whaaa! And June finds a magical axe from Norse mythology that keeps decapitated heads alive after it separates them from the body - hhwugiuhdsh! Time for… something… make it t

    Gotta love a quippy slasher-mystery featuring a heroine who really comes into her gruesome own!

    How does a mysterious hooded figure come to possess a wicker basket of decapitated heads? Well, the story begins as the summer of 1983 draws to a close, and June Branch travels to Brody Island, Maine, to visit her boyfriend Liam. What happens next is gory and darkly funny; after many puns about heads (or lack thereof), the obnoxious men of the island get their dues at t

    I didn't know about the Hill House Comics line before seeing this on Netgalley, but I was immediately so excited for new Joe Hill content, naturally, I grabbed it right away and I'm so glad I did. This was a really fun, intriguing horror/mystery set in Derry County, Maine (yep — there's even a Shawshank Prison reference), with some intriguing paranormal elements and a weird, creative plot exactly along the lines of what I've come to expect from Joe Hill: a little bit strange, a w

    Really liked this one, a story full of weird twists and turns, and constant surprises (though when we're finally clued-in to what's going on, it was a bit of a disappointment). A young woman comes to visit her boyfriend, just finishing up his last day as a summer police officer on a small island resort community off the coast of Maine. Coinciding with this is the escape of four convicts from a work party and the rapid approach of a massive storm. It all comes together in a pretty tight li

    This book is such a strange and funny premise. As always, I enjoyed Joe Hill's creativity in that regard. What starts as a sleepy little mystery quickly escalates into heads literally rolling, and then still talking. It's like Hill was pondering the age-old issue with mysteries: the dead cannot speak, and then wondered how he could get around that in the most gruesome and funny way possible.

    June is a delightful character: fierce and defiant and sexual and everything you want in a her

    (4,2 of 5 for impressive horror-ish slasher comics story with very nice art)
    DC's imprint Hill House brought a basketful of horror comics. I'm surprised with the overall quality but two of them (so far) stands out. The creepy stuff named Dollhouse Family and slasher/revenge goodie Basketful of Heads. This is as close to movie equivalent of this genre as you could get in comics. It's not only one, it's not only one good but it's the finest, the one with great potential formed as close to the movie

    I received this as an ARC to read for free in exchange for my honest review. Thank you to NetGalley and DC Comics Studios for giving me access.

    Joe Hill can really bring you a story! Nothing is what is seems in this horror story. It had some twist and turns that you don't expect, which is exactly what I love in a good graphic novel.

    I felt the story was completely original and bonus points for a female heroin that doesn't need to be saved.

    The art style was a little strange. I

    Head over heels in love! Basketful of Heads unfolds like a classic 80's horror movie, but even better! That's probably due to Joe Hill's fantastic and creative writing, along with the EC Comic drawing style. Welcome to Brody Island, Maine, where the only sharks are the ones on land. It's September 1983, and June arrives in town to pick up her boyfriend Liam so the pair can return to college. But before the lovebirds can leave, escaped convicts and a bad storm leave them scrambling to survive. Throw in a possible enc

    A fun story with a good mix of fantastic elements and mystery.
    Well told in that it keeps you guessing about what exactly is the truth until the end.

    Juney Branch took an axe, gave old Puzo forty whacks...when she saw what she had done, she gave her boyfriend 41...
    She's crazy! Listen! Do you hear her singing?
    Pretty good, mildy weak reveal, art could have been better but kept me interested...
