House of Horror 16 - Justice League Horrors Week 2

Greetings Horror Hounds!

I hope everyone is doing great. There has been a lot of hopeful news regarding the multiple vaccines and the weather is slowly changing for warmer temperatures. Needless to say, I have been in a great mood the past few days. On top of that, the new Snyder Cut is inching its way to release on HBOMax. What better way to get in the mood for a new version of Justice League? Justice League horror-themed comics!!!

Ah, The Tenth Circle! A solid read.

Did those Claremont and Byrne guys ever do any noteworthy team books before JLA? Seems like they’re familiar names…:thinking:

Yes, I’m joking. They’re X-Perts at team books. :wink:

@soul.glitch glad to have you in the House of Horror!!!

@Vroom Claremont did get to play in the DC sandbox with the Uncanny X-Men and The New Teen Titans crossover!

Seriously, one of my favorite crossovers that will sadly never see the light of day on DCUI.

X-Men? Hmm, that sounds neat.

goes to Google “X-Men”

I hear good things about the X-Men but I think that has faded away in the sands of time. At least we are getting the new Teen Titans Academy soon!

jajajaja seriously though who are these xmen you mention… hahaha

There’s oodles of good, great and grand X-books out there.

Morrison’s New X-Men and Whedon’s Astonishing X-Men in particular. They’re just… awesome.

Teen Titans Academy looks like it will be fun. I enjoyed Sheridan’s writing on Future State: Shazam, so I’m eager to check out his next DC endeavor.

I can’t disagree. I would love a Morrison Teen Titans book but I think he is beyond that kind of thing now. In all seriousness, X-Men is the only book that I even read from Marvel and I am so far behind on that it is just daunting.

I think “X-Men” are related to “Next Men”.

At least, that’s what Infoseek (best pre-Google search engine, IMO) says.

You know another good X-book to check out? Cable and X-Force.

It was a favorite of mine from Marvel Now (the original iteration from 2012). I remember it being a solid read in all respects.

Claremont and Lee’s run though…that is the X-Men at their best. Really, really good. Granted, I’m biased because of my Jim Lee fandom, but still, it’s a great run (which began on Uncanny X-Men and ended on X-Men (1991)).

That Claremont/Lee run was when I first started to get into X-Men. Cable and the X-Men was great. I was also a fan of that X-Men series with vampires.

Vampires…the run from…2010 or so, right? Curse of the Mutants or some such?

In any event, that was good. I never saw (nor see) Namor as a mutant though. A for effort on Marvel’s part to make him more relevant, but…no.

2 Likes

Oh yeah, they retconned him to be the first mutant. It works in some cases, at least when they want him in the X books but everywhere else it just never worked.

What’s Namor up to these days?

No idea. The last time I read anything from Marvel was 1/21/21, thanks to a list I have been keeping of every comic I read.

Don’t get me started.


I literally grew up on Claremont. You don’t want to see the singles.

Morrison’s is definitely top-tier, though given all the “recent” news coming out with Joss Whedon, seeing any of his work that I’ve enjoyed in the past feels rather bitter.

Also, the House of X/Power of X by Johnathan Hickman and the Dawn of X line that came out of it has all been pretty damn good.

Last I heard, they were kind of putting him more on a villain path these days. He was apparently a big antagonist in Chip Zdarsky’s Invaders miniseries and in Jason Aaron’s Avengers.

Anyway, definitely going to try to make it to this one!

Nice books! I had many of those a long time ago.

So, Namor’s back to his ways of being a weiner that moves in on other guy’s gals?

He just needs to ditch the metal shorts. Then he’d be much more personable.

…said nobody, because Namor almost always has a chip on his shoulder about something.
