The House of Mystery: The Space Between (2010) Matthew Sturges, Luca Rossi, Jose Marzan Jr

I’d somehow managed to forget that Fig’s father had shown up at the end of the last episode. Needless to say, he’s causing trouble for Fig, at a time when the house is having enough troubles of its own.

There are a variety of stories here. Stories about Rina–her past and her present. Stories about members of the house in the present, stories about members of the house in the past (and a new addition to the house to boot) and several random stories, some of which were strange, some of which were dark, some of which were horrifying.

One of the things I very much like about this series, is that like Sandman before it, the structure of the series allows you to wander down strange paths and learn stories that are there just for the sake of being stories.

I have to admit, however, that I wasn’t particularly fond of the story of Rina’s past. Not sure I can quite put my finger on it, but in some places it felt as if it were leaving out the important parts, while in other places the story felt a bit too heavy handed.

However, I really liked the surprise reveal at the end.
