House of Secrets (2nd Series)

 HOS2   (Vertigo, 1996-1998)

™ and ©1996 DC Comics, Inc.

(From The Slings & Arrows Comic Guide)

Bearing no relation to the previous series, the house is a place occupied by ancient supernatural beings who judge their visitors by reference to events previously concealed. There are no secrets from the Juris, though, and those failing their trial are consigned to Hell. The Juris is a daft name for a start. Get through that and there’s some nice art from Teddy Kristiansen, particularly in the testimony sequences, but so far House of Secrets fails to engage and it’s the fault of writer Stephen Seagle. The idea of all-powerful, otherworldly supernatural beings has been mined to death. The lead character, teenage runaway Rain, is glib and irritating, and while the fate of the guilty is nasty their stories don’t occupy enough space to engage the reader’s sympathy. Must do better. ~WJ
