Editorial Reviews

Review

"It's a lovingly rendered world, full of strange, creepy, and beautiful wonders and I desperately crave more of it."--IGN

"Kittredge and Miranda have something wonderful in "Coffin Hill"--COMIC BOOK RESOURCES

About the Author

Caitlin started writing novels at age 13. Her first was a Star Wars tie-in. Fortunately, she branched out from there and after a few years trying to be a screenwriter, a comic book writer and the author of copious amounts of fanfiction, she tried to write a novel again. Her epic dark fantasy (thankfully) never saw the light of day but while she was struggling with elves and sorcerers she got the idea of writing a story about a werewolf who fought crime. Two years and many, many drafts later, she pitched Night Life to a bevy of agents and one of them, Rachel Vater, sold the series to St. Martin's. Caitlin collects comic books, print books, vintage clothes, and bad habits. She loves tea, loud music, the color black (especially mixed with the color pink) and ghost stories. She can drive a stick shift, play the violin and knows more English curses than American ones. Caitlin lives in Olympia, WA with two pushy cats.

And I was paying attention - I read it in one sitting because I knew if I stopped once, I wouldn't pick it up again.
Sam Quixote
When Eve and Nate meet again as adults, Eve still clearly has feelings for him, but he is not happy to see her even though he is obviously still attracted to her.

The second half was a little better, if only because the story picked up its pace or that I found it more interesting.

NOTE: Not for young readers, contains a lot of bloody violence and nudity.

I have read a few of the Coffin Hill comics but was happy to see Volume 1 on Netgalley when I did, I was finally able to read the series as it currently stands. I enjoy Coffin Hill for its dark presence in the comic world - yes various series do have darker elements but this series is about a witch (not always a good one) and a dark power.

Eve Coffin is our main character, who is stubborn and determined but also strong and interesting. There is so much that I want to learn about her character - more through each issue. The other characters are kind of just there; there are a few guys that Eve has relations with, towns people that all hate her, and her mother who also seems to loathe her daughter (I want to know more about this!). These characters ll kind of fell flat for me.

I found the overall story to be very confusing at first, because I had only read a few of the issues - sad to say that even as a compilation of 1-7 it can still be confusing. I felt like there was a lot of information that had to be assumed by the reader, or just overall left out completely.

The art was pretty great, very macabre and deeply colored. I found that to be redeeming to the story.

Overall, I enjoyed reading this volume, it was an interesting story with a lot of characters, but I felt like I was missing a lot of back-story to go with it and really get into it. So I just liked it, nothing overly spectacular, 3 out of 5 stars.

I got a copy of this graphic novel to review through Netgalley. I was a fan of Kittredge’s Iron Codex series and was curious to see what she would come up with in graphic novel format. It was a gory and creepy graphic novel, I thought the story was okay and the drawing could have been better. It ended up being an okay read, but nothing spectacular.

Eve Coffin is the daughter of the reknown Coffin family, they are known for dark magics and witchcraft. One night her and her friends go into the forest intent on a night of sex, drugs, and witchcraft. When Eve wakes up in the morning she is covered in blood, one friend is missing, and the other has gone insane. Many years later Eve thinks this is all in the past, that is until she finds out that the darkness she unleashed in the forest that night is still on the prowl.

This is definitely an adults only graphic novel. There is a lot of nudity, gore, swearing, sex, etc. I like dark gothic urban fantasy stories, so I thought this was going to be a great read. Unfortunately, while it was okay, it fell a bit flat for me.

None of the characters in this book are all that engaging or likable, for the most part they are all fairly bad people who have done bad things in their life...or at least a lot of stupid things.

Eve was a wild child in her teens and did some very dark and evil magic and it’s coming back to haunt her later in life. She is still quite the determined woman, but I didn’t really find her to be all that interesting of a character.

There are other characters involved as well, but they were fairly forgettable. The plot was actually fairly typical dark fantasy stuff...

Coffin Hill (Vol. 1): Forest of the Night by Caitlin Kittredge and Inaki Misanda

Coffin Hill is a great new horror comic that is worth checking out in this first trade collection. It is part of the new wave of titles being put out by Vertigo, DC's line of mature comics for adult readers. I tried reading Caitlin Kittredge's Coffin Hill when it came out on a monthly basis, but it didn't hold my interest, so, after two issues, I decided to wait until it was published as a trade. Many good modern comics read better as trades than they do as monthlies. Even Brubaker's brilliant Lovecraftian-noir comic Fatale, except for a few issues in the middle of the series, doesn't read as well on a monthly basis as does his earlier work such as Criminal. So, now that Coffin Hill is available as a trade, I can finally recommend it as a worthwhile comic book.

Coffin Hill is about a young rookie police officer named Eve Coffin who quits the force after miraculously recovering from being shot in the head. She returns to her family's mansion of a home in Coffin Hill, Massachusetts and discovers that an old friend, Nate, is now Chief of Police Nate Finn in the small town. Against his wishes, she starts helping him as he searches for missing kids in the woods near her old home because these new cases are connected to what she did as a teenager in those same woods.

A good portion of the story consists of flashbacks to the rebellious young Eve who loved to shock her parents and cause trouble with her little gang of friends: Dani, Mel, and Nate, Mel's boyfriend on whom Eve had (and still has) a crush.
