A Dark Holler Comics Production

Dark Holler Comics is a new entity from the mind of Justin Hall. As writer, artist, and producer, Justin Hall sees DHC as a way to build worlds, tell stories, and share new experiences through a range of digital platforms.

The first offering from DHC will be a story about Appalachia’s first super hero.

There are no “Appalachian super heroes” in pop culture and comicdom today. There might be a few geographically linked, but there are no stories, no real hero that can be identified as Appalachia.
