House of Mystery v5: #24

Under New Management
Part 4 of 4

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

The pace of the story seems glacially slow. This does not feel like a complete installment. It is all aftermath. Strawberry is dead and someone has to pay for it. The images are beautiful. It is a shame that the story doesn't rise to the same level.

Romantic Comedy (with Corpses)
by Matthew Sturges (writer) and John Bolton (artist)

The middle of this story was the best part. That's where it jumped the rails and seemed to be headed somewhere different. Unfortunately, in the end, it was very standard: girl meets boy, girl loses boy, girl gets boy back.

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