“I’ve always loved the horror genre, because it’s a genre where you get to see a girl fighting back with everything she’s got.”
When Joe Hill first emailed me to ask, “Have you ever thought about writing a comic book?” he said that DC Comics was also recruiting Carmen Maria Machado to write one—and I was thrilled. I’ve been a fan of Carmen’s work ever since reading her stunning short story collection, Her Body and Other Parties.
Cut to 2020: Machado and I both have graphic novels appearing in hardcover via Hill House Comics, Hill’s hand-curated horror imprint at DC Comics. Machado’s book, THE LOW, LOW WOODS, is already in print, and my book, DAPHNE BYRNE, releases on Nov. 3.
