So even if you are not a paying DC Universe Infinite member you can join us for the first book!!! I should also point out that there is a backup story in each issue titled Sea Dogs.

Favorite is super tough, they’re both great. But, Heads was funny too, so slightly in its favor

Basketful Full of Heads but Plunge was great too. Also loved The Dollhouse on a separate note. Ty for welcoming me & the others. Another bonus in Basketful was it happened to be loaded with musical references, which I’m all about…

I am sort of leaning towards Plunge but then I start thinking of the Stephen King Easter eggs in Basketful of Heads. Then I remember how @msgtv went outside of his normal reading for Basketful and really enjoyed it. Hmm…I think Basketful just got my vote.

@capo-mage we haven’t gotten to The Dollhouse…yet. I have shown more restraint that you can ever know by not burning through the Hill House titles the moment they were released on DC Universe Infinite.

And, yet. Plunge should be an HBOMax show. There is no wrong answer

4 Likes

I agree!!! I think both would work as an HBOMax show or at the very least, a limited series. Speaking of Joe Hill books, I just borrowed the first volume of Locke & Key on Comixology.

I should also note that The Low, Low Woods is the first Hill House title that we have read that is not written by Joe Hill. This actually makes me even a little bit more excited to dive into the story. I know Joe Hill is great but will the other books be just as good?

Hill wrote Locke and Key?

You’re an honest soul. I couldn’t wait & I’m not into horror. But everything we read I like so… I am into horror??? I think that’s how that sums up?

Yes sir!

Wait a second…he did a comic with some guy named Stephen King? I wonder how they met. :rofl:

I really liked it, think anyone from young teens up would enjoy.

I think horror comics are perfect, especially when you read a lot of superhero books. It is like a palette cleanser if you will. They are often just weird enough to keep you wanting more and most of the DC horror books aren’t too gory. There are some Wildstorm books from the mid-2000’s that I would love to see on DCUI like the Nightmare On Elm Street or Friday the 13th titles.

As for non-DC horror titles, I can suggest Hack/Slash. The premise is about a girl who is killing slashers, which are another form of the undead. There is humor and a love for the slasher genre. Which I am a HUGE fan of.

I’m enjoying the change of pace I get with DCUI. A little horror, some Western, tons of Vertigo. Give me more Sgt Rock and it would really balance out.

5 Likes

Speaking of Vertigo, I really need to read more of iZombie. That book took me by surprise by how much I enjoyed it. I really haven’t read too many Western titles but that is because my reading generally bounces back and forth from DCUI to physical to books I bought in bundles over the years.

5 Likes

I’ll like it if you guys/girls like it. Sounds good @darkstarz ill check that suggestion out eventually.
