Weiter geht's im 2. Teil des Hauses der Mysterien.

Fig, Piratin Ann und Barkeeper Harry beschließen, einen Versuch zu starten, aus dem Haus zu entkommen. Einen möglichen Fluchtweg stellt der Keller dar. Dort treibt sich allerlei lichtscheues Getier herum, was nicht zimperlich ist, und auch Fig entdeckt, daß Ann und Harry nicht zum ersten Mal im Keller sind. Warum haben sie ihr dies verschwiegen? Außerdem: Teile aus Harrys und Anns Entstehungsgeschichte werden offen gelegt! Neue Geschichten von Gästen! Eine kurzlebige Affäre!

Wie schon im ersten Band macht die Story dem Titel alle Ehre, und erzeugt mehr Mysterien, als sie enthält. Die Atmosphäre ist märchenhaft, verträumt und geheimnisvoll, so wie es sein soll.

Die wechselnden Zeichner der Zwischenepisoden sorgen für Abwechslung.

Eine klasse Serie, die man lesen muß, und die einen nicht los läßt. Nicht nur für Fans von Fables!

3.0 von 5 Sternen The writing is better than the Art 10. Juni 2011
Von Paige Turner - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I guess it's obvious that it would be this way, but the quality of the writing surpasses the artwork here. Sturges/Willingham lay out a convincing comic/horror genre story. Call it "Fables meets Horror," it's pretty darn good. The story meanders in typical Sturges fashion, taking us on a few side journeys. The opening tale seems to have the most promise, but ends too fast. I guess you gotta leave 'em wanting more. The concept is cool, a crazy "haunted" house in which the denizens all get stuck in a "groundhog day" type existence that repeats as they tell various tales. In this collection of books, we start to learn that there is something more here than meets the eye.

Speaking of the eyes, what annoyed me about this book is Luca Rossi's drawing style. Maybe some call it "impressionistic" or artistic, but to me, it comes across as "lazy." I love the detail that I just don't get with Rossi. It feels rushed, while others that wrote on "Fables" left their very hearts on the page. I love a detailed comic in which I wonder how they could even draw that small. You won't get that here.

Sloppy artwork mars a solid story here, and because comics are a visual medium, I just can't give it better than three stars.
4.0 von 5 Sternen Enter the basement... 16. Mai 2016
Von Phillip Schultz - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This is a really nice follow up to the first volume in the House of Mystery series by Matt Sturges. Once again, the setting is within the house itself, which exists between dimensions. This allows travelers from very different worlds to visit it from time to time. The format established in the first book is carried over here as well. The primary plotline acts as a frame for stories being told by various characters, so they are woven together.

The first volume introduced the reader to the house, and now the main characters are on a mission to explore the basement. They are hoping to find a way to leave the house. These main characters are permanent residents, but not by choice. Where other people can leave the house whenever they want, there is no path back to their homes for these characters.

The basement is creepy. It reminded me of a horror movie where you just want to tell the characters not to go down there. The creators do a good job of building this up a little bit and the art punches things home once they head down. The bar still needs to be run, so a couple of characters stay behind. This portion of the story balances out the basement portion pretty well.

While the book answers some questions raised in the first volume, there are others that aren't touched or made more confusing. Not to mention new issues that are raised as things are revealed. This is a good continuation of the series and I highly recommend it if you read volume one.
3.0 von 5 Sternen NOT AS GOOD AS VOLUME 1 31. Mai 2010
Von Tim Janson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I've always loved the way DC Comics is able to take old series and characters and re-invent them for a modern audience. The latest success is the new House of Mystery series. This second volume collects issues #6 - 10 of the monthly series and begins to explore the deeper "Secrets" of the House...if you'll pardon the pun.

We met Fig Keele in the first volume as she escaped the phantasmal Conception and raced headlong into the House. Now, she only has a desire to escape its walls and the crazy inhabitants who seem all too willing to call the place home. Her new friends Bartender Harry and pirate "Bloody Ann" seem to think they know a way out...down a long flight of stairs to a forgotten door. Behind that door they will find a terror greater than all their fears. A terror so great that even Cain's oft-murdered brother Abel shows up to try and tame it. The main story is interspersed with back-stories that feature art by the likes of Berni Wrightson & Kyle Baker.

The problem with the short stories is that they create an uneven tone due to the different writers and artists who worked on them. While some of the back-stories were really good, especially the Wrightson story, I found they distracted rather than enhanced the main story. I love this title and while it will probably never be a huge hit I hope this is one of those Vertigo titles that develops enough of a niche audience to keep it going.
4.0 von 5 Sternen Highly Enjoyable Second Book 22. März 2010
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This was a very good second book for the House of Mystery series. I liked the story and the build up to the climax was great. The basement was filled with creepy goodness. There were a few sections other others stories but I enjoyed all of them. Bill Willingham (the writer of the Fables graphic novel series - which are fabulous) also had a special insert in this volume with a story about cats. It was good. I enjoyed the complexity of the characters more in this book as some of their secrets came out. I also was left with more questions and so I am looking forward to the next one. I did like this more then the first House of Mystery book but some of humor in the previous book wasn't in this one.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Could Be A Lot Better 13. September 2009
Von Shambalagala - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I wasn't sure about getting the second House of Mystery after reading the first one. I loved the art, the overall idea, and little mini-stories were clever and entertaining, but so much about the world was so mysterious that it failed to draw me in. I had hoped the second volume would begin to explain something about the characters, their situation, the house of mystery.

Unfortunately, it headed further in the wrong direction. The mini-stories were less good than the first book. More mysterious things were added to the story but not explained, so that it felt like random events were happening with no context or framework. The result of this is that I'm not the least bit involved in the story. It shows characters doing things without explaining why, and when it does, it doesn't make any sense. The story is also broken into abrupt little segments, switching mid-scene to another, and then back in a way that is just jarring. And then the main character is also narrating something random philosophical stream of thought across the entire story while she's having conversations with people and running around. It distracts from what's happening. For example, how does it make sense that she's waxing poetic about the meaning of "home" while running for her life? Not only that, but it has basically the same plot as the first story - hang out in the bar telling stories, then go exploring under the house, and then things go bad and they retreat to the bar. Same story.

I wanted to like it. I suspect it's more Sturges and less Willingham behind this volume. But whatever it is, it's not very good. I'm done with the series.
