House of Secrets

 HOOS   (DC, 1956-1978)

™ and ©1970 DC Comics, Inc.

The House of Mystery’s Cain has a kinder brother, Abel, who hosts this exploration of the weird and the supernatural. Witches, goblins, bogey men, and psychotics roam the pages, and the hapless mortals who get caught in their clutches sometimes thwart them and sometimes don’t. Some of DC’s best artists, including Steve Ditko, Sheldon Mayer, and of course, that master of the macabre himself, Bernie Wrightson, contributed to this series.
