Basketful of Heads
Basketful of Heads | Joe Hill
14 posts | 17 read | 19 to read
Joe Hill, the horror mastermind behind NOS4A2 and Locke & Key, arrives at DC with the twisted tale of June Branch-trapped with four cunning criminals who have snatched her boyfriend for deranged reasons of their own. Now she must fight for her life with the help of an impossible 8th-century Viking axe that can pass through a mans neck in a single swipe-and leave the severed head still conscious and capable of supernatural speech. Each disembodied head has a malevolent story of its own to tell, and it isnt long before June finds herself in a desperate struggle to hack through their lies and manipulations...racing to save the man she loves before time runs out. But is June Branch a woman fighting for her life-or a deranged axe murderer with a basketful of paranoid fantasies? The truth is even more horrifying than a basketful of heads. Collects Basketful of Heads #1-7.

This collects the entire miniseries, which launched Hill House Comics, presented by Joe Hill. I was expecting some good storytelling, but this exceeded my expectations. What a thrilling, grotesque ride! The cover art is stunning. I'll definitely be checking out more titles from this line.

Aaaand that's my #bookspin pick done for July.

After an escaped group of criminals breaks into the house that June and Liam are watching, Liam is taken by them. June grabs a strange Viking axe & flees. When she uses the axe to defend herself, she decapitates the man but his head lives and talks. Soon she will learn a lot of secrets about the residents of Brody Island as she carries an increasingly full basket of talking heads and her axe. A fun, gruesome, macabre story full of twists & humor.

peaknit Sounds crazy, I love it! 1y

Basketful of Heads is a horror graphic novel about a young woman that just wants to spend the weekend with her boyfriend, but ends up fighting for her life. It was dark, it was gritty, it was intense, and it was such a fun read!

Got sidetracked and read Basketful of Heads tonight. Excellent! Escaped convicts, an ancient and magical Viking axe, murder, robbery, and a basketful of heads! I love Joe Hill, but the artwork in this graphic novel is next level. So beautiful to read.

1.) Breasts and Eggs by Mieko Kawakami
2.) Basketful of Heads by Joe Hill, illustrated by Leomacs--such cool art! Loved ending the year with a badass heroine.
3.) I set my Goodreads at 100 for this year--a little lower than last year but I'm hoping to knock out some honkers this year including 1Q84 for the “longest book on my TBR“ #PopSugarChallenge prompt

Well, damn. This is extreme story of "girl power". Gruesome, yet hilarious.

Guess I can‘t let #scarathlon go... honestly I meant to read this then, but ran out of time. Creepy horror comic about a girl and her boyfriend who get caught up against some escapes convicts. When she fights back with an old Viking ace, she decapitates the men, but their heads keep talking! #bookspinbingo

TheAromaofBooks Great progress!! 2y

So good!

This graphic novel is bloody gorey goodness with a story that is unique and artwork that brings every word to life. Escaped prisoners, missing money, and a Viking hatchet are just some of what goes on in this series. And I love that the girl in this story doesn't need to be rescued by a man.

Burning through Birthday gift cards .... A Basketful of Heads by Joe Hill (graphic novel), a yearly planner that starts September 2020, I love a lot of Marie Lu & I‘m Batman so couldn‘t keep walking by her Batman novel and last but not least the full series of Stein‘s Gate (anime) because I love the English voice of Sebastian Michaelis so I‘m looking forward to binge watching this!

4.5 🌟
Joe Hill has taken up his father‘s torch in the horror genre but also made it his own by going the way of graphic novels. This mystery is full of blood and guts and the big question is, who is telling the truth. Plus all the talking heads in the basket…This was a disgustingly fun read. I bet it eventually gets optioned for TV or movie. If you like horror and graphic novels you are sure to like this book.
