Greetings everyone! Welcome to the newest House of Horror entry! To celebrate the insane snowfall that I have just experienced Monday I thought it would be fun to take a closer look at the Winter Specials that are horror-themed. These are longer books but they should be a lot of fun!
The first book we have is DC Nuclear Winter Special 1. I might be stretching the horror theme a bit for this issue but it is described as “living in a post-apocalyptic wasteland (or, you know, 2018) the world can seem bleaker than ever.” That sounds pretty horrific to me! We are also promised to see “the futures of Batman, Superman, and the Flash, as well as many more denizens of the DC Universe.” This only makes me more excited for Future State in January!
Our second book is another long book but I couldn’t think of a better way to introduce Swamp Thing to the House of Horror. Have no fear, we will be taking a deep dive into Swamp Thing where we will explore some of the Alan Moore series. Without further adieu, we will be reading Swamp Thing Winter Special 1.
Considering that we have two books that are longer we will close out this entry with House of Mystery (2008) 9 and 10.

If you are new and would like to catch up on what we have read you can check out the House of Horror library here !
There are a few new horror comics 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.
