Authors in Conversation: Horror & Graphic Novel Writing
Laura Marks, author of Daphne Byrne
Carmen Maria Machado, author of The Low, Low Woods
DC’s Hill House Comics authors Laura Marks and Carmen Maria Machado come together to discuss their chill-inducing new graphic novels. Marks’s Daphne Byrne is an unsettling and blood-soaked tale set in the gaslit splendor of late-19th-century New York. Following the sudden death of her father, 14-year-old Daphne experiences a supernatural encounter—a strange, insidious presence in her own body, whose terrifying power Daphne is soon sharing. In Machado’s The Low, Low Woods, Shudder-to-Think, Pennsylvania, is plagued by a mysterious illness that eats away at the memories of those affected by it. When El and Vee find themselves the newest victims of this disease, the two teenage dirtbags begin a surreal and terrifying journey to discover the truth about the strange town that they call home. Join acclaimed writers Marks and Machado for a spine-tingling virtual discussion on graphic novel writing and all things horror!
