On Alice's sixth birthday, her dying great-aunt sent her the birthday gift she didn't know she always wanted: a big, beautiful 19th-century dollhouse, complete with a family of antique dolls. In no time at all, the dollhouse isn't just Alice's favorite toy...it's her whole world. 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... Longtime collaborators Mike Carey and Peter Gross (Lucifer, The Unwritten) are joined by Vince Locke (The Sandman), to bring their most horrifying vision yet to Hill House Comics-a story that echoes into centuries past, into Alice's tormented future, and into the beating heart of the madness that makes up our world...literally. Plus, in chapter two of the 'Sea Dogs' backup story written by Joe Hill, spymaster Benjamin Tallmadge's monstrous scheme is underway as his coerced crew of bloodthirsty colonial lycanthropes prepare to gut the Royal Navy from within!

BONUS REVIEW by Rick Berg


Do you miss great Vertigo Comics from the old days? Do you love Twilight Zone and all the current bingeworthy shows following in it's steps? Then Hill House comics are for you. None of Image/Boom/IDW post apocalyptic nonsense will be found here. Just straight up off kilter chilling horror! Dollhouse Family is the story of a poor household on the brink of sadness as an abusive relationship spins out of control until a family heirloom arrives. Young Alice escapes the real horrors of life into her Dollhouse's happy family life. Meanwhile 150 years earlier an Irish mapmaker discovers that some caves maybe best left alone. Very creepy and very beautiful Dollhouse Family invites you in and never wants to let you go.

I give it 8 out of 10 Grahams
