Greetings Horror Hounds!
DC Communy’s Pride Celebration is in full swing. Personally, I have been enjoying the Pride Profiles a lot. Before we get too deep into the world of horror and Pride @LaserPuff and I would like to welcome our newest member @Danknite420. As you make yourself comfortable in the House of Horror I strongly suggest against going into all of the rooms as they are forbidden. Honestly, I have no idea what lurks in there but it cannot be good.

This week we are going to return to a House of Horror favorite, The Dark Mansion of Forbidden Love #3! Then we are going to visit the Dark Mansion with Deadman in Deadman: The Dark Mansion of Forbidden Love #1-3!
It should be noted that the cover artist for Dark Mansion #3 was Jeffrey Catherine Jones.
Pride Profile: Jeffrey Catherine Jones
There are artists who you simply cannot do justice to in a short prolife, Jones is one of those. Jones graduated with a degree in geology in 1967, but then moved to New York with wife Louise (who would go on to marry Walt Simonson and cement her own place in comics history) to pursue work as an artist. The work came quickly from comic companies including DC. But it was drawing beautiful strong female characters that earned Jones’ reputation, particularly for Vampirella . After years with magazines like Heavy Metal and National Lampoon , Jones eventually stopped working for hire to produce more intimate meaningful art. Jones’ personal life was a struggle falling into heavy drinking trying to deal with gender identity issues. Eventually in 1998, after years of conflict, Jones added Catherine to her name and began living fully as a woman, and returned to some more commercial work, including DC again. Unfortunately, Jones passed away in 2011 from a combination of medical issues.

Does Jeffrey Catherine Jones’ cover convey the story found inside? Did you like Deadman: Dark Mansion of Forbidden Love? Do you like this series better or worse than the original series?
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.
