A new era begins in these tales from issues #21-25 as Fig reopens the bar with Cain as her new partner. Trouble arises, though, when a young man arrives claiming to have a very special relationship with Fig…
The House of Mystery has been through some changes recently, beginning with a relocation away from its old site on the crossroads between dimensions into the middle of a bustling (and disgusting) Goblin Market. At the same time, its erstwhile, fratricidal caretaker Cain has returned to reclaim his property, and he isn't too keen on sharing ownership with out newly heartbroken heroine, Fig.
But inside its doors, the rules are still the same: tell a story and drinks are on the house. It's an irresistible deal for travelers from any number of worlds. Heck, even Fig's ne'er-do-well brother Strawberry stops by for a pint.
There's just one problem: Fig doesn't have a brother. Or does she?
Who is this mysterious stranger? If his memories of Fig are real, then what happened to her memories of him? And why, following his arrival, are the House's guests suddenly starting to turn up dead with an even greater frequency than usual?
This shocking new chapter of writer Mathew Sturges and artist Luca Rossi's acclaimed saga of storytellers, sorcerers and sots features contributions from an all-star array of comics talent, including Bill Willingham, Sergio Aragones, Sam Kieth, John Bolton, Paul Levitz and more!
