House of Mystery v5: #22

Under New Management
Part 2 of 4

by Matthew Sturges (writer), Luca Rossi (penciler), José Marzán, Jr (inker), and Lee Loughridge (colors)

A couple seeds are planted but most of this chapter is focused on the newcomer, Fig's brother, Strawberry. Whether he actually is her brother or nor not is unclear but he seems convinced of the fact.

Fig and Strawberry's Adventure in the Cloud Kingdom
by Matthew Sturges and Farel Darymple

This is the story that Strawberry tells Fig, in his attempt to jog her memory. It doesn't come across as entirely convincing, aside from the fact that it does sound and look like the sort of story a child might tell. As with many of the side-stories in this series, this one just seems to be getting started when it ends.

House of Mystery is published by Vertigo, an imprint of DC Comics
