Showcase Presents The House Of Mystery

With Halloween approaching in a few short weeks, I thought I'd dig out one of my favorite volumes of DC's Showcase Presents series. The House Of Mystery was one of my favorite horror anthologies back in the 1970's and it's great that DC decided to collect these seminal mystery stories in multiple volumes. Volume 2 reprints issues #'s 195-211 in beautiful black and white. The B&W reproduction makes these tales even more spooky than they were back then. These issues feature stories by such Bronze Age legends as Len Wein, Gerry Conway, and Robert Kanigher with art by such luminaries as Bernie Wrightson (perhaps the finest horror artist DC had at the time), Michael Kaluta, Nick Cardy, and Alex Toth. If you're interested in horror comics, there's no reason you shouldn't pick up either volume of this great series.
