    1. I like absurdity. I like bunnies. I can't quite say which I like more.Probably absurdity.As for the story and the stories in this one I only really enjoyed the one about the sorcerer. The rest were too disjointed and meh and kinda pointless. Yeah, I know about Fig's ability. Yup. Anything else?


    2. I'm not really sure why I keep reading this series maybe because I feel like it might go somewhere but that would mean I'd have to somehow remember what's going on from volume to volume which is tough considering the overarching story is continually broken up with little one-off stories (that are fun in their own right). That and the various players and motivations of said players are hard to keep track of and remember, especially since the main story is splintering which only adds to the fragme [...]


    3. 2.5The story is moving along, and Fig is finally figuring out who she is and what she can do, Dad is trying to find allies to fight the Conception, and (view spoiler)[the return of Harry? Yay. (hide spoiler)]But not much seemed to really happen in this installment. I mean, it did, but it could've been, like, one chapter instead of a whole installment to itself. And the interstitial stories were nowhere near up to par.It's time to start moving things along at a faster pace here, guys, and not nee [...]


    4. This is becoming one of my favorite series. I like the different characters same with the recurring characters. And I can't say enough how much I really like the art style. Its just so out there depending on the scene and of course a story being told. Then of course the story takes an even weirder turn than it already has. If that makes sense. Really good volume. And of course the covers for these are drawn and colored well.


    5. I just don't care about Fig. Honestly, this is the first House of Mystery graphic novel my library had. Maybe the series is better if you read it from the start. I have no clue who the cast is (besides Caine and Able from Sandman) and the most enduring character was Tursig the gay Orc. Honestly, this book would have been way better with more Tursig or some kind of explanation what was going on.My library has the next two volumes and something tells me that Tursig will not be in those books.


    6. Well, I like the witches, the goblins and the side-stories, but I still feel the plot keeps changing every other issue. While I see how the characters' actions and strifes connect together they also come and go as they please, disappearing for long times and then showing back up as if they've been the central plot all along. It feels a bit like I'm watching Bleach again, with old characters and plots being replaced with new ones every time the author get's writer's cramp.It's not a bad story as [...]


    7. I sadly am missing volumes 4 and 5, but I could not wait to begin the next part of the series. This volume carries the meta-theme of constructing narratives even further, using it as means to destroy and rebuild worlds. There is a lesser theme that touches on homosexuality that could have been crafted better, but the overall way it plays out is not enough for me to lower the score. The characters have gotten better, and the stories too are better crafted. There are a few gaps I look forward to f [...]


    8. Stuff starts happening again! Yay! This series has been Fig's story with side notes from the very beginning, and she returns front and center in this volume as she tries to make some headway against the inertia that developed over the previous volume or so as the new status quo was established following the blow out with daddy dearest. We learn some more interesting things about Fig herself, Harry makes a cameo, and the goblins go to war.


    9. Still enjoying this series.You need a reasonably strong stomach and a dark sense of humor, but if you like fantasy horror, check it out.In this volume, the troll's tale is particularly entertaining. Watch out for the twist ending, though.In other news, Fig is figuring out a little bit more about why the Conception is so interested in her, and her love - Harry - may be making a comeback from the dead, and there is a war for the Summerlands.


    10. Wellat was largely terrible. I mean, yeah, the various guest artists are lovely. But a prose story written in a nearly illegible cursive? Also, this whole witch thing comes out of nowhere and hinges mostly on characters we've never met. And then we're told all the things of import that occur, rather than shown.Also, every character has basically become an archetype of an unlivable protagonist. And without anything interesting to be said.


    11. Some good solid story telling by Matthew Sturges with a likely plot assist from Bill Willingham (who co-created the series). Some plot threads are wrapped up, such as the Summerlands War. More importantly I think Sturges puts to bed the whole gay goblin controversy very well in this, and if anything presents a positive image for gays with the goblin Turig (I'm certain my thought on the issue will inflame someone).


    12. A gay Goblin saves the day, a stuffed bunny tries to save his home and a band of witches and their witch queen battle an army trying to take over the Summerlands.And that's just more or less scratching the surface.Great volume. A lot of things come together in these five issues and it leaves me very much looking forward to the final few volumes left in this series.


    13. Back at the House of Mystery, although this time most of the story takes place without, and the usual theme of presented short stories replaced more with action, of the gobbliny and witchy warrior kind. Overall pretty good, though I would be hard pressed to claim this series as my favorite. Nonetheless, I will be getting the next volume.


    14. I had already read this when it came out, but realized I hadn't reviewed it and I just reread it before reading Volume 7. I didn't know what they were going to do after the last issue, but although not my favorite volume, still love this series and eagerly await the next


    15. Finally finished up the House of Mystery, reading volumes 6, 7, and 8 over the last week (about two years after reading the first five). Didn’t enjoy the whole Summerland/Thinking Man bit as much, but the rest was a rollicking finish to the series, bravo!


    16. Even though this series has some interesting moments, I'm starting to find it rather tedious. The only plot element that I enjoyed from his volume was the story of Karg, the gay goblin, who manages to become goblin king because he relies on his mind rather than his brawn.


    17. This is a hard comic to read. I read the vol 1-5 at the same time, so the story flowed. Reading one a long time after the last makes it really awkward. I don't remember where I left off or what happened. Maybe I will read the 5th one again and change my review later.


    18. Don't know where they are going with this series now. There was a good arc and it endedrhaps the series should have as well? it did. Another series ended with no ending. Sad. A running theme.


    19. Interesting, but completely impossible to understand, and I'd have to re-read the GNs that came before this edition to figure out how this book followed the others. Continuity is a real problem.


    20. Have to admit, I'm a bit confused. Glad to see my guy is back though. Wonder wtf Peter wants with him though.




    21. A fun continuation of the series. I'm not convinced that Sturges is going anywhere with all of this, but nonetheless the journey is enjoyable.



    22. Contains a Vietnam acid flashback sequence drawn (or truer to say, conjured into nightmarish life) by Brendan McCarthy. All other details are secondary.



    23. Wow, this series has gotten so uneven. I think the next volume is the last one, so hopefully things tie together in a way that at least sort of makes sense. Guess we'll see
