House of Mystery v4: #19
The Beauty of Decay: Part Four: Convergence by Matthew Sturges (writer), Luca Rossi (penciler), José Marzán, Jr. (inker), Joe Rubinstein (inker), and Lee Loughridge (colors) - More twists and turns as the denizens of the House struggle to make it back to their current abode.
Despite or due to some of the incredible direction changes the main story continues to be entertaining. Will there ever be a satisfactory resolution to the tale of the House, Fig, and the other residents? Does there need to be a satisfactory resolution? The fun in this series seems to be the way that Sturges weaves together the disparate characters and their backgrounds. What makes the story attractive right now may not make it so in the future.
Also, the images are soft on the eyes.
House & Home by Matthew Sturges (writer) and Antonio Fuso (artist) - Cain tells a tale of the House itself and how he came to be separated from it. There isn't much of a departure between the visual stylings of this backup story and the main story as is usually the case. The humorous touches are appreciated.
House of Mystery is published by Vertigo, an imprint of DC Comics
