Back Blurb

A house divided

Trapped in a dead dimension with no apparent exit, the House of Mystery is about to fall -- and the lost souls who call the House their home are desperate, scared, and starving.

Some take what pleasure they can from each other. Some tell tales to pass the time. And some desperately seek a way out, no matter how dangerous.

Meanwhile, the dark forces that seek to claim the House for their own are closer than ever, and they're picking off its guests one by one.

Now Fig, Harry, Poet and the rest of the residents must make a last-ditch attempts to escape. And in this weird world, only one this is certain: not all of them will survive.

Writer Matthew Sturges and artists Luca Rossi, Wether Dell'Edera and Jose Marzan, Jr. lead an all-star cast of guest creators -- including Bill Willingham, Peter Miligan, Richard Corben, Michael Allred, Michael Wm. Kaluta, Mark Buckingham and more -- deep into the House of Mystery's darkest hour with THE BEAUTY OF DECAY, collecting issues 16-20 of the acclaimed Vertigo series as well as the special HOUSE OF MYSTERY HALLOWEEN ANNUAL #1, guest-starring Madame Xanadu, Merv Pumpkinhead, iZombie and John Constantine, Hellblazer.

Beautiful alright. 0

This is the 4th volume of the House of Mystery Vertigo series.  I have been enjoying this series so far.  Each trade got better and better and the characters grew on me only to see some die.  The series was dragging a little if you have been reading it from the beginning.  It took 3 trades to really figure out what happened and why the House of Mystery ran away.  This forth volume tie-up the Cain and his run away home business and sets up for a brand new up in point with issue #21.  Pros: Great ...
