House of Horror 39 - Flashpoint & More!

:house_of_horror: Greetings Horror Hounds! :house_of_horror:

Last week’s journey into Bronze Age horror anthologies was a welcome change and this week we are going to look at another series that will lead to change, in a much different way. On top of that, House of Horror will be adding a slight change in how we do things.

First, @LaserPuff and I want to thank everyone for joining in last week’s conversation. At the time of this writing, I am still reading last week’s books but I did finally catch up on about 100 comics that I have bought and haven’t read. Sheesh, where does the time go?!?!

This week we are going to read a mini-series from Flashpoint! Can you believe it has been 10 years since this massive event? I can’t wait to read this alternate version of Deadman once again. As that miniseries is only 3 books, this was the perfect storm to start something that @LaserPuff and I have talked about doing but never did. This week we saw the first issue of DC Horror Presents: The Conjuring: The Lover 1!!! So, going forward, we will be including new horror series as they arrive on DCUI! Depending on release dates, some of these books may be scattered within the month, depending on our curated selections.

:house_of_horror: Books To Read :house_of_horror:
Flashpoint: Deadman and the Flying Grayson 1 (2011) (rated 12+)

Flashpoint: Deadman and the Flying Grayson 2 (2011) (rated 12+)

Flashpoint: Deadman and the Flying Grayson 3 (2011) (rated 12+)

DC Horror Presents: The Conjuring: The Lover 1 (2021) (rated 17+)

Don’t forget to let us know what you thought of this week’s books!

Do you want to read and discuss Flashpoint? Have no fear, our friends at World of Bats are reading the entire Flashpoint miniseries! Do you want to read and discuss some of the miniseries for Flashpoint? Of course, you do! You can join our friends at the Justice League Comic Club in their discussion!

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.

Interesting take on Deadman, Dick Grayson, and Fate in this story. Very sad to see Dick lose his parents still. A Dick Grayson Dr. Fate would definitely be interesting to see. At least Boston didn’t stay a selfish jerk. The Conjuring comic was nicely creepy. Can’t wait to see where it goes next issue.

I have to read the DCUI copy of The Conjuring, did it include the fake advertisements?

Yes, there were some in there.

I was really worried that those would be taken out for some reason. I do think the first issue was a perfect set up for what is to come and I also really enjoy that there are back stories for the artifacts.

With a loud Kra-Koom ajm08g enters the House of Horror :zap: :theflash:

:flash_hv_1: Ah, timeline looks okay…
:flash_hv_1: Oh the House of Horror! As Deadman would say… Hiya. :wave: :skull:
:flash_hv_1: Oh… Deadman and the Flying Graysons. What a read.
:flash_hv_1: I concur with your thoughts @scoop001.

ajm08g then notices another shift in the timeline :eyes:

:flash_hv_5: Whoops got to run!
:flash_hv_1: Here are also some other thoughts on Deadman and the Flying Graysons.

Deadman and the Flying Graysons Thoughts

The artists really captured the acrobatics very well. :smiley:

Nice seeing this vision from the Helmet of Fate… Kind of reminded me a little of when Doctor Fate was in an episode of Smallville with how it looked. :grin:

Oh Doctor Fate is right in that Deadman will be… Haunted. :ghost:

Talkin’ bout that reputation… :musical_note:

Ah, the family bonding… Too bad it did end tragically again… :pensive:

Ah yes… Wonder Woman thinking about all that’s happened… :wonderwoman:

There is certainly doom on the horizon for how it ends Diana… :eyes:

Fate will not be so kind to you Penthesilea… :crystal_ball:

King Shark is a Shark! :joy: :kingshark_hqas:

What an entrance from Vertigo! :astonished:

Very interesting advice. :thinking: :grinning_face_with_smiling_eyes:

Exit Boston Brand… Enter… The Deadman! :ghost:

Nice of Boston to stick to his promise to John and be there for Dick and taking that leap. :sunglasses: :+1:

Hey… That’s some pretty good team members for The Resistance. :grin:

I do also wonder what might else have happened with Dick becoming the new Doctor Fate… Maybe that might show up somewhere else somewhere down the road… :thinking: :crystal_ball:

With another loud Kra-Koom ajm08g runs off into the horizon :zap: :theflash:
