As we’re officially in the spooky season, we thought now would be the perfect time to share a little sneak peek at the first issue of The Dollhouse Family, one of the eagerly-anticipated new horror titles coming out of DC’s Hill House Comics pop-up imprint.
The first issue of the series from the Joe Hill-curated imprint, which will be written by M.R. Carey and illustrated by Peter Gross and Vince Locke, hits shelves and digital platforms on November 13th, and will feature colours from Cris Peter and letters by Todd Klein.
Here’s the official blurb and the preview artwork for your delectation:

And soon, young Alice learns she can enter the house to visit a new group of friends, straight out of a heartwarming children’s novel: the Dollhouse family. But while the Dollhouse family welcome her with open arms, in the real world, her family life is becoming much more complicated…and deep within the Dollhouse’s twisting halls, the black room waits, with an offer to Alice. The house can fix all this, the black room says. All she has to do is say the words…
