Short Book Reviews

Showcase Presents The House of Mystery Vol. 1 by Various -
Artists Bernie Wrightson, Neal Adams, Gil Kane, Al Williamson, Jack Kirby and Alex Toth are among the highlights of this black and white collection from the peak Groovy Age of Horror years of this long running title. The stories are a mixed bag, some solid, some predictable and some dogs, but on the whole it's a entertaining look the way comics used to be. There's nothing like it on the market today. As of this writing, Amazon seems to be sold out of new copies and used copies are listed at an inexplicable $73 a pop. Recommended.
