DC Refrigerator Full of Heads press release (July 15, 2021)
DC’s HILL HOUSE Returns With ‘Refrigerator Full of Heads’
Expanding The Lore of ‘Basketful of Heads’ In A Glorious, Grindhouse Tale
This October, heads will roll— again.
From writer Rio Youers (The Forgotten Girl; Lola on Fire) and artist Tom Fowler (Books of Magic) comes the first in a new wave of Hill House titles from DC.
On October 19th, REFRIGERATOR FULL OF HEADS will bring readers back to bloody Brody Island. At the bottom of the bay, the mysterious axe that unleashed violent pandemonium during the hurricane of ’83 has been waiting… but nothing that powerful stays buried.
With a new sheriff, new visitors, and a dangerous Great White Shark spotted off the coast, the pieces are all in place for terror to rise again when vacationing couple Calvin Beringer and Arlene Fields stumble onto the wrong side of Brody’s unsavory elements.
“Joe Hill set the bar incredibly high with Basketful of Heads, and we’re building on that, expanding on it,” said writer Rio Youers. “The axe is back, bringing all the horror, humor, and mayhem—so much mayhem—with it. We’ve got a few more surprises lined up, too, some crazy, off-the-wall happenings. Honestly, I cannot wait to get this comic into readers’ hands.”
Artist Tom Fowler also pointed out just some of what horror fans can look forward to. “I love horror and I’ve been skirting around the edges of it in my work for a number of years now. Usually in the spaces where it bleeds into comedy and fantasy. It’s been a blast just letting it in and seeing where it takes me.” He added, “I mean, in what other book will I ever get to write into the margins of the layouts, ‘bits of face and skull peel and unfold Midsommar-style.’? Let alone one about refrigerator maintenance?”
Hill House architect and Basketful of Heads writer Joe Hill added, “I knew the axe from Basketful of Heads wouldn’t stay at the bottom of the Atlantic for long. I was goofing on possible sequel ideas with the novelist Rio Youers and he pitched me a gonzo-action-horror story that would make Sam Raimi weep happy tears of blood. I can’t wait to see Rio and wunderkind artist Thomas Fowler stacking some cold ones in the fridge. This one is going to be a ride.”
