House of Horror 71 - Are You Afraid of The Spectre?

:house_of_horror: Greetings Horror Hounds! :house_of_horror:

Halloween is closing in on us and what better way to get in the mood than with a Halloween special? @LaserPuff and I have been planning this one for a bit.

First, we will read Are You Afraid of Darkseid? This was 2021’s DC Comics Halloween anthology. I am excited to read this one! Then we are going to meet up with Hal Jordan as The Spectre in a 4 part story in Legends of the DC Universe. Admittedly, The Spectre is one of my characters that I never read unless we are reading his stories in House of Horror so I am very excited to dive into this story.

We have a Spectre profile ready for you to discuss all things Spectre!

Finishing Legends of the DC Universe books and found out this is a lead into the 2001 Spectre series which is not on DCUI at this time. Thankfully, the story finished in Legends and was a lot of fun. Still, no where as horrific as Crispus Allen. Can a Spectre be as demented as Crispus Allen? To date, or at least from what I have read, nope.

This was a fun story. It reflects on Hal’s different periods both as Green Lantern and Parallax.

Are You Afraid of Darkseid was a fun anthology. Personally, I feel like the John Stewart story was very similar to the Jessica Cruz story in a previous Halloween anthology. However, I really did enjoy this book. The Harley story was my favorite. The thought of her working with Darkseid to stop Bloody Mary is just silly but it worked.
