House of Mystery

House of Mystery, Vol. 1: Room and BoredomHouse of Mystery, Vol. 1: Room and Boredom by Matthew Sturges

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I looked into House of Mystery because of my love of Fables and Jack of Fables. They are as different as night and day, but both excellent. The series focuses on five characters who are trapped in a supernatural bar set in the House of Mystery (an architectural hodge-podge, creepy mansion) where people pay their tab in the only accepted currency of the realm: story telling. While much darker than Fables, the two series share Sturges and Willingham's wit and humor. I'm interested to see where they take it in the next volume.
