June Branch is the prisoner of a desperate and violent man who wants information. But who's really interrogating who here? June's wits are sharp, but the occult Viking axe she has stashed nearby is even sharper... if only she can talk her way out of the cell she's in and get it back in her hands!

    I am in the tank for this series pretty much because I went through it three times just to look at the brilliance that is Leomacs. I can't tell you enough how great he is. I do love that Basketful of Heads is unafraid to pull punches. It lives inside the slasher/grindhouse/last girl world, while also pointing some disembodied fingers at that world. This book is not for the faint of heart nor is it for a causal fan, but it really does a wonderful job of telling a cinematic story on the pages of a comic book. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Feb 26, 2020

    Leomacs and La Bella deliver some stunning visuals throughout this issue and I love how the art styles change in the flashbacks. This is a great looking issue and the art perfectly captures the tension and terror of the plot. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Olivier Roth Feb 26, 2020

    Leomacs this month is assisted by La Bella on pencils, but you really wouldn’t know that there was anything different from previous issues when it comes to the art. La Bella seamlessly blends into Leomacs’ style and everything is brought together by Stewart’s continuously amazing colors. This has been a really fun comic not only to read, but to also see such great visuals from issue to issue. Read Full Review

    Hopefully, Liam doesn't turn out to be like everyone else in this crazy town of Brody Island. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Joey Casco CSW/CSS Feb 26, 2020

    This is a big info dump on what is going on in the conspiracy involving Liam and why the police and Hamilton are involved. Even though we don't know exactly what Liam was actually initially LOOKING FOR to use against the sheriff and his family just yet, we now know that an unexpected side-quest is the reason why he got busted. There are no heads added to the basket but we mostly get a story from an elitist family with a sociopathic spoiled entitled son, and a big stand is made by June at the end. This issue sets up the next two to finish the story off so I'm happy that we get this stuff now before a hopefully gory climax. Read Full Review

    There's very little dramatic momentum beyond the inherent horror of the concept. Read Full Review
