Topic: House of Mystery
Does anyone read the Vertigo comic House of Mystery? Sturges is the writer, Rossi does pencils, and Marzan Jr. the ink. I am completely addicted to this series, which is now on issue 8.
The current arc is called "Love Stories for Dead People" and is definitely worth jumping into blind. It's beautifully drawn and colored. The main character is Fig, a girl at the center of the intrigue of the House, which is a halfway place for strange people and creatures of all sorts. She's not sure why she's there, but she is strangely at home. The House is mainly a bar, where these visitors must tell stories to pay their tab. The stories include witches, monsters, and all sorts of macabre happenings.
It's scary and sexy - my two most favorite things. Anyone? Anyone????
