DC Comic is to return to the Elsewhere world – and now part of the DC Multiverse – of Batman and Dracula: Red Rain this Halloween with a new 80 page anthology Secrets of the Sinister House, featuring 6 all-new strips from some of the industry’s finest.
With a cover by John Romita Jr and Bill Sienkiewicz, this one-shot will see the likes of Harley Quinn, John Constantine, Detective Chimp, Zatanna and the Atom as they travel to this dark, dismal world.
Secrets of Sinister House will feature a Vampire Batman short (from the classic Batman & Dracula: Red Rain) written by Rafael Scavone & Rafael Albuquerque with art by Rafael Albuquerque, a Constantine story written by Bryan Hill with art by Alessandro Vitti, Paul Dini writing an 10-page Harley Quinn & Zatanna short with art by Cian Tormey, a creepy bit on The Atom written by Dan Watters with art by Sumit Kumar, an incredible Justice League Dark story written by Robbie Thompson with art by Tom Raney, and a classic haunted house short story, “House of the Dead,” written by Jon Layman with art by Jorge Fornes. Those are only a few of the tales within, but if they’re not enough to get you screaming, what is still to be revealed will stop you dead in your tracks!
Looking at that list, I must say, its good to see John Layman writing again for DC Comics as well as the promise of Sumit Kumar drawing on this title too, given how amazing his work has been on the vampire/horror series These Savage Shores. An appropriate choice for such a gothically-themed special like this.
Secrets of Sinister House #1 is out on October 2, 2019.
