Greetings Horror Hounds!
First, I would like to apologize for posting this week’s entry late. As I mentioned in my quick message to everyone I have been a bit under the weather. Needless to say, my poor sleep schedule caught up with me. Now that is out of the way, @LaserPuff and I would like to give a big House of Horror welcome to our newest member @paulomarciano.17324! I hope you enjoy your stay but I would make sure to treat The Green with respect as I can’t protect you from Swamp Thing.

This week we are going to begin a multi-week event as we take a stroll through Rotworld! It was 10 years ago that DC’s newest initiative New 52 took over comic store shelves. There might be mixed feelings about New 52 but one thing is undeniable, there was a strong horror comic line for the first time in years from DC. We saw books like Swamp Thing and Animal Man become hits, we saw the return of Milestone’s Xombi, and even Deadman had his own ongoing title, sort of.
Are you still unsure if you want to venture into Rotworld? Maybe this article will help you out!
After introducing the concept of reading horror comics as they drop on DCUI last week with DC Horror Presents: The Conjuring: The Lover we are continuing our new comic exploration with Justice League Dark member Man-Bat in his new comic!
Books To Read
Animal Man 12 (2011) (rated 15+)
Don’t forget to let us know what you thought of this week’s books!
- Did you read Rotworld as it came out?
- Were you excited about seeing Animal Man return?
- Is this the first time you have read a Man-Bat comic outside of Justice League Dark and Batman comics?
- What was your favorite comic this week?
Did you like Man-Bat and would like to read more Batfamily comics? World of Bats is the club for you! Not only is World of Bats a great club they are also celebrating the anniversary of New 52 this month! (I also credit this club for my growing enjoyment of Batman, a character I avoided for a decade)
If you are looking for even more New 52 goodness, look no further than the Justice League Book Club, Modern Age Superman Club, and Characters of DC Club! The Modern Age Superman Club is taking a weekly look at the New 52 Superfamily titles this month and I for one am excited to revisit many of these. Meanwhile, the Justice League Book Club is putting New 52’s Justice League under the microscope! The Characters of DC Club are doing an examination of Grifter this month ranging from his first appearance in 1992 to the New 52 series of Grifter and Wildstorm!
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.
