Greetings Horror Hounds!!!
Before we jump into the Earth Day festivities, and there are festivities because we love and treasure The Green, there are few housecleaning notes. First, and foremost, @Laserpuff and I would like everyone to welcome our newest members @Skajadeh, @bssimon.65231, and @Dexstarr_2756! I apologize if there is moss on every piece of furniture in the House of Horror but who am I to tell Swamp Thing he can’t sit on the couch?

Now for the reason, we are all here! Horror comic books!!! Last week started reading Alan Moore’s excellent The Saga of the Swamp Thing books and a Scooby-Doo Team-Up with Swamp Thing story. However, we ended on a bit of a cliffhanger for both stories. This week we are going to wrap up both stories!!! If you are new to Swamp Thing last week and this week’s selections are a perfect place to start. One thing I want to point out is that Alan Moore’s writing is amazing but the cover for issue 34 is easily one of the most iconic Swamp Thing covers, ever!

Oh yeah, and do you remember DC Daily? Of course, you do! After you are done reading and sharing your thoughts below you can check out DC Daily’s Comic Book Club from when they read Swamp Thing!
Instead of a random or not-so-random poll, we decided to do something a little different to celebrate Earth Day and The Green . Do you have any plants or gardens that you are proud of or haven’t killed? (I never got the green thumb gene from my grandma) Or do you have a cool re-usable grocery bag or water bottle or anything else that helps The Green please post your pictures below!
If you want to dive deeper into the swamp and let’s be honest who wouldn’t? You should definitely check out DC History Club’s Swamp Thing where @msgtv and @TurokSonOfStone1950 lead the DC historians through all of the swampy muck to uncover comic book history gold.
A few new horror comics are hitting comic store shelves this week! We might not be reading the books right away and some of them might even be discussed in other clubs upon release. Think of this as a preview of what might be lurking in the dark corners of House of Horror.
There are no new floppies hitting the newsstands but there are a few new hardcovers, that I will certainly be adding to my collection.
