New Horror from Dark Horse: Death Head ~ What'cha Reading?

New Horror from Dark Horse: Death Head


This is going to be one of those books. I can feel it. The ones that make you check the windows before you go to bed at night, the ones that you turn over in your head all day long. Death Head, from Dark Horse, is a new horror miniseries by Zack and Nick Keller, with art by Joanna Estep, and if horror is your thing, this one deserves to be on your pull list.

New Horror from Dark Horse: Death Head

We start out in total horror movie fashion – a couple, on their own in the woods. But wait! They’re not camp counselors, they’re not even teens! They’re a married couple, expecting their third kid, and having a bit of a break from their kids at home. They come across a weird little abandoned town, where they find an old church. Of course, they have to go in, right?

Cut to two separate narratives: a rebellious Catholic high school girl, and a bullied young boy who discovers a new friend. What’s the connection? Oh, there is one – but you’re not going to find it here.

What the married couple doesn’t see is that they’re not alone in the abandoned church. Someone is watching, but who is he? Or she? All Dark Horse will say is that this is the Plague Doctor. So yeah, go to sleep with that on your mind.

I can’t wait to find out more about the Plague Doctor and these characters. Add Death Head to your pull list so you can be in on it, too.
