Written by Mike Carey & Joe Hill

Cover Art by Jessica Dalva

On Alice’s sixth birthday, her dying great-aunt sent her the birthday gift she didn’t know she always wanted: a big, beautiful 19th-century dollhouse, complete with a family of antique dolls. In no time at all, the dollhouse isn’t just Alice’s favorite toy…it’s her whole world. And soon, young Alice learns she can enter the house to visit a new group of friends, straight out of a heartwarming children’s novel: the Dollhouse family. But while the Dollhouse family welcome her with open arms, in the real world, her family life is becoming much more complicated…and deep within the Dollhouse’s twisting halls, the black room waits, with an offer to Alice. The house can fix all this, the black room says. All she has to do is say the words…

Longtime collaborators Mike Carey and Peter Gross are joined by Vince Locke, to bring their most horrifying vision yet to Hill House Comics-a story that echoes into centuries past, into Alice’s tormented future, and into the beating heart of the madness that makes up our world…literally.

Plus, in chapter two of the “Sea Dogs” backup story written by Joe Hill, spymaster Benjamin Tallmadge’s monstrous scheme is underway as his coerced crew of bloodthirsty colonial lycanthropes prepare to gut the Royal Navy from within!

SERIES PREMIERE!

But the farther they get from home, the more forces threaten to tear the family apart as fanatical cults, mercenaries, and tabloid Paparazzi close in, determined to destroy the girl-or use her for their own ends.

A new genre-defying series written by New York Times bestselling author JEFF LEMIRE and illustrated by acclaimed artist PHIL HESTER, FAMILY TREE combines mystery, action, and horror into an epic story about the lengths a mother will go to in order to keep her children safe.

DC Comics / Young Animal
Written by N.K. Jemisin
Art by Jamal Campbell
Cover Art by Campbell

N.K. Jemisin, the acclaimed, award-winning author of The Broken Earth and Inheritance science fiction trilogies, makes her comic book debut with artist Jamal Campbell as they thrust you into a stunning sci-fi murder mystery on the other side of the universe!

For the past six months, newly chosen Green Lantern Sojourner “Jo” Mullein has been protecting the City Enduring, a massive metropolis of 20 billion people. The city has maintained peace for over 500 years by stripping its citizens of their ability to feel. As a result, violent crime is virtually unheard of, and murder is nonexistent.

But that’s all about to change in this new maxiseries that gives a DC Young Animal spin to the legacy of the Green Lanterns!

Release Date: November 13, 2019

PCS NOTES: The idea of seeing how the Green Lantern Corps fits into the Young Animal narrative is interesting. Jamal Campbell is excellent. Sounds good to us.
