Basketful of Heads continues as a seven-issue miniseries! June Branch has been hunted, haunted, and desperate; she's got an ancient Viking axe with mystical properties and a severed head in a basket that won't shut up. If she can't make her traveling companion be quiet, maybe she can get some answers out of him...answers that might spell the difference between life and death. But getting him to talk is one thing, and getting the truth out of him is another. He's a decapitated devil who'd like nothing more than to lead June astray-and with three other killers out to finish her off, so she has no room for error. The comic with the sharpest edge more

    But Why Tho? - Kate Snchez Dec 18, 2019

    Overall, in Basketful of Heads #3 the creative team knocks yet another issue out of the park. The ending of each issue thus far has left me with on a hook, waiting for the next one and I can't wait until next month. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Jason A. Fleece Dec 21, 2019

    Basketful of Heads #3 is another solid entry in what is turning out to be the best of DCs Hill House horror comics line. Its dark, its weird, its disturbing, and its funny. Its everything youd want out of a horror comic. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Dec 18, 2019

    Leomacs has some great art in this issue. The characters look great and the use of shadows is brilliant. The moments between June and Sal look great and there is some real menace to Sal even though he's just a head. Read Full Review

    If Leomacs and Hill can keep this quality up, and the rest of the creators at Hill House Comics continue to do the same, Im confident that it wont be long before they conquer the entire horror comic book world! Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Lenora Pentecost Dec 24, 2019

    A stressful, head-scratching (heh) issue, Basketful of Heads #3 (Hill, Leomacs, Stewart, Bennett) continues to deliver twists, turns, and terrors that make readers excited for more. Read Full Review

    Forces Of Geek - Atlee Greene Dec 31, 2019

    It's no secret that Joe Hill can write a great horror comic book, andBasketful of Headshas quickly become another fun series on his resume. While DC Comics' Black Label imprint has gotten off to a rocky start, the complete opposite can be said for Hill House Comics. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Joey Casco CSW/CSS Dec 18, 2019

    There's great interaction between June and Sal throughout the issue. How he goes from scared to angry back to scared, while she is sorry for what she did but not intimidated by him, makes for a very entertaining conversation. And that makes up for the lack of progression. Yeah, you do learn a little bit more about stuff going on but the plot still treads water until the very end when something pretty big happens. Still, I very much enjoyed the book while I was reading it and think it's the best issue of the 3 so far. And the art style fits the story being told well. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Tony Farina Dec 22, 2019

    That last page is an excellent cliff hanger but the reveal about what is in June's pocket is even better. Hill really does keep us guessing. This is an excellent bridge issue. I would strongly recommend readers pick up all of the first three issues and get ready for an axe and chain fight in January. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Dec 20, 2019

    Basketful of Heads, the first of the Hill House books to debut is still the one that isn't fully clicking with me, due to its slower pace and its odd grindhouse-inspired concept. Read Full Review

  • 6.0 - Chase Magnett Dec 18, 2019

    Much of the comic is spent in conversation with June and her new companion. A few of the jokes land and the surreal nature of their relationship is amusing, but that initial appeal doesn't cover just how long this lasts. Read Full Review
