El and Octavia find themselves on two separate paths. One leads to somewhere deep within the Earth, and the other leads to a small green trailer on the edge of town. There, the people of Shudder-to-Think, PA say, lives a witch. For a price, she can change you-and even make you forget that which you no longer wish to remember.
But what is the price of remembering that which you have lost?

    But Why Tho? - Kate Snchez Feb 19, 2020

    In just three issues The Low Low Woods has struck a chord deep inside me. It's a dark mystery that embodies an eerie fantasy that has me gripped from page one of issue one to page 24 of The Low Low Woods #3. This is the best title from Hill House Comics and truly the best horror title out right now. Machado's worldbuilding is both beautiful and disturbing. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Arbaz M. Khan Feb 19, 2020

    With barely any action, issues like these are usually failures in the hands of less adept creators. But the creative team offers great rhythm within the storytelling to really hone in on how people deal with certain tragedies. It is genuinely a blessing that we get to have some great breathing room, whilst still feeling a lingering danger for our characters. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Feb 19, 2020

    Of all the Hill House books, it has one of the best senses of place, making the small town almost a character in its own right. It hasn't had a weak issue yet. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Joey Casco CSW/CSS Feb 19, 2020

    This issue introduces some new stuff that makes you wonder what the heck is going on even more than you were before. First, we meet a Shutter-to-Think's resident witch. Then with El being hurt and Vee getting a bleeding lip at the same time (and then what happens on the last page) they're now somehow physically connected? But there is an expansion on things we've seen before. The skinless man returns, for example. But the real WTF moment comes from Jessica with what we see happening to her mother, giving this book a real horror moment. Also, poor Pearl! I'm enjoying this mini even with all of its frustrations, and I really believe by the end it's all going to come together and be a much better read when read straight through. Read Full Review

    . Its body horror is just the right level of unnerving, a level that should be maintainable so long as its balanced with the right amount of mysteries and revelations to keep people invested. Read Full Review
