House of Mystery v5: #23

Under New Management
Part 3 of 4

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

This chapter is a 'tweener. More information is provided but not much is resolved. Fig seems to admit to herself that Strawberry isn't lying about his identity but publicly maintains that she doesn't know him. The only other moment of interest is one that transpires between Cress and Poet, although it isn't entirely clear what was in that syringe.

Sucked In
by Matthew Sturges (writer) and Sam Kieth (artist)

This is a beautiful looking story which doesn't seem to have a purpose or a destination. That is mildly disappointing considering who the artist is.

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