I’d read #2 b4. I’m guessing it was on here b4 #1? Anyways, fantastic. Just have #3 to go. Idk #1 was 64 pages. I’ll finish #3 tomorrow. I loved the art. Stories were fantastic. All basically about karma, in these cases, bad karma coming back to bite ya’. Also loved that it was Cain’s house. That’s the panel I decided to snap for this discussion. Surprised by the # of pop culture references in it, in a good way!!! Took me back to being a kid & watching her tv series after dark. Basically a book version of it. Ty @Razzzcat @Mae & @darkstarz & @LaserPuff for turning me onto the horror genre in comics.

@capo-mage is here! :hugs: Welcome!
Looking forward to what you thought of issue 3 (l’m gonna check it out today hopefully).

Issue 1 is a good collection of stories—Shout out to Better Homes & Gargoyles magazine…

I’m pretty sure you were like, the first person I talked to about Xanadu here, btw, so thank you. :purple_heart: But I remember the “dark times” before @darkstarz started :house_of_horror: HOH.

…And this just popped into my head, so I’m just gonna leave it here. :ghost:

Excellent!!! Really enjoyed Elvira. Loved the art & storytelling. Amazing u said that cuz I was thinking about posting Better Home & Gargoyles on real fun references, but I didn’t know if anyone would get it, & I didn’t wanna have to explain it’s a knock off of Better Home & Gardens. I laughed tho. Huge Xanadu fan. That comic I can’t promote enough. Multiple Eisner awards would support my feelings.

Hi Moth! If you don’t mind ads and being a little out of sync, you can watch it free with ads on Tubi or Pluto:
