Greetings Horror Hounds!
I hope everyone is enjoying the Pride celebration happening in many corners of the DC Community. We won’t have a new topic for next week as we are covering A LOT of books, even more than normal. The good news is you can read at your own pace. Before we dive into what we are reading @LaserPuff and I would like to give a big welcome to the newest residents of House of Horror! @mistressofthedark, @superboy1980, and @IamcoolYT! Please make yourselves comfortable but I wouldn’t get too close to any spellbooks or that pack of cigarettes in the corner. While the House of Horror is smoke-free, I wouldn’t want to be the one to get between John Constantine and his coffin nails.

We are finally jumping into the world of John Constantine! We have seen him in various books like Justice League Dark and the Witching Hour but we have never focused on him. As Constantine is one of the bigger characters that reside in the dark corner of DC horror comics House of Horror is taking a deep dive. From his first appearance in Swamp Thing to his legendary Vertigo series, there is a lot of ground to cover. We are only scratching the surface with New 52’s Constantine books 1-6. The first issue of this series is FREE for non-DC Universe Infinite subscribers so you can still join in the conversation!!!
If those 6 books weren’t enough for you we also have the full 12 issue series of John Constantine: Hellblazer. This is the first time House of Horror has entered the Sandman Universe and I can’t wait to crack open that digital comic to see what mystical and horrific things we will find.
Books to Read
Yes, yes, I know. There are a lot of books to read. While this is the most ambitious reading list House of Horror has ever done, I would like to remind everyone that you don’t need to read everything.
If you do want to read more on John Constantine let me direct you to DC History Club. @msgtv and @TurokSonOfStone1950 took a deep dive on John Constantine’s history!

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.
