Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly

A pirate, a poet, a bartender and a drama queen are trapped in a bar. No, that's not a joke, that's the classic DC horror anthology House of Mystery, newly brought back by Vertigo. House of Mystery has a history going back to 1951, but the reader needs no context to understand the book: people are trapped in a magical inn between worlds and tell weird tales and horror stories. The newest captive is Fig, an architecture student who was once the heroine of a set of children's novels, and she immediately enters into a love/hate relationship with the house, talking to it like an old friend but trying desperately to escape. House of Mystery is the kind of creative, low-intensity horror that Vertigo made its name on. Rossi provides the vibrant, dynamic art for the framing story, while a succession of artists showcase their skills on the individual tales written by Willingham and Sturges. Sturges's "Familiar" is particularly delightful, with Steve Rolston's candy-colored art illustrating the tale of a fantasy-novel princess gone happily wrong, as she feeds her suitors to her adorable talking leopard and then goes roller-blading in the park. (Jan.)

    Interesting

    Well this was interesting. Very interesting. Reminds me a little bit of American Horror Story. Mostly because of that really cool but at the same time creepy cover and well the tone of this. Then you have the short stories in between the story which are drawn well but are weird. The art was really good and moments where I was like, wait is that and huh, I didn't think I'd see that and what's going on? Anyway, this caught my interest and am wondering what will happen next. I really got to keep track of what series I'm reading, starting and have yet to finish.
