Everyone’s got a different perspective on the difference between a house and a home. A House is just a structure, but Home is where the heart is, right?
Growing up in an Italian household in Philadelphia, volume control at the dinner table wasn't high on the list of priorities. If my family's dinner conversation were a musical style, it would be classified as "screamo." To a lot of people it would seem like the place was filled with a cacophony of sound, but that's what makes a house a home.
Well, as you’ll soon be finding out, the House of Mystery isn’t just a House. And even though you’ve gotten to know its many varied tenants, it’s not just a Home either.
In fact, the House itself is getting more action than most of us reading this right now. Why? Because one of the Mysteries that’s about to be solved is that the House is Harry the bartender.
Or rather, Harry is the physical embodiment of the House’s psyche. And I can’t let slip here, but he’s not the only resident with a pretty severe identity crisis.
Leave it to Matt Sturges to fill the House with twists and turns. As some eagle-eyed readers may have already realized, he’s also packed this sordid tale with a series of puzzles. I’m only willing to give you one hint – the spread below, amazingly illustrated by Luca Rossi, contains an element that will have a direct impact on our special Halloween issue.
While we’re discussing upcoming events, the next HoM arc is going to see more murder than your average weekend in Camden. Body counts through the roof. No one’s safe. These issues? Not for the faint of heart. And speaking of hearts, poor Harry’s might end up broken by the time it’s all over.
