This Wednesday, May 14, Vertigo is releasing “Coffin Hill Vol. 1: Forest Of The Night”, the first comic series from novelist Caitlin Kittredge. Since its debut issue, the book has been greeted with strong reviews across the board, and rightly so. Kittredge and artist Inaki Miranda are not afraid to delve into the bizarre. There are plenty of oddities to go along with the secrets, lies, and corruption of the Massachusetts inhabitants, all brought about by a manifested darkness.
We’ve got an exclusive look at volume 1, which includes Miranda’s never-before-seen concept art and sketches.

Collects COFFIN HILL #1-7 . Following a night of sex, drugs and witchcraft in the woods, Eve Coffin wakes up naked, covered in blood and unable to remember how she got there. One friend is missing, one is in a mental ward–and one knows that Eve is responsible. Years later, Eve returns to Coffin Hill, only to discover the darkness that she unleashed ten years ago in the woods was never contained. It continues to seep through the town, cursing the soul of this sleepy Massachusetts hollow, spilling secrets and enacting its revenge.
Set against the haunted backdrop of New England, COFFIN HILL explores what people will do for power and retribution. Noted novelist Caitlin Kittredge, author of the Black London series, brings a smart, mesmerizing style to comics. Artist Inaki Miranda (FABLES) brings his dynamic storytelling to COFFIN HILL, following an acclaimed run on FAIREST.
