House of Mystery 3: The Space Between – Mathew Sturges and Bill Willingham

h3This is another superb volume because even when it makes decisions that have you feeling unsure they turn out for the best. It delivers plenty of answers and new developments and switches neatly between believable characters with realistic emotions and the weaving of a fictional backdrop. Unlike Fables not having a knowledge of elderly literature isn’t a drawback.

The art is great and you are now used to the guest artists and embrace the, sometimes unusual, styles they bring. There are plenty of ways to depict the unease and tension of psychological horror. And a little puzzle page by Sergio Aragonés.

The neat little touches make this work stand out. In issue thirteen all the pages are numbered 13. That sort of care and attention rewards your faith in this tale. Long may it continue.

Double Thumbs Up!!
