From the Vault: House of Mystery Annual #1 (2009)


The value of this comic far exceeds the rest of the House of Mystery series and this is for one good reason.  This comic  is the first appearance of the characters from I, Zombie.

The House of Mystery is very good series that builds on the mythos of the House of Mystery.  Characters from different dimensions and times find themselves trapped in a mysterious house.  The house supplies food for the people so long as they tell stories.  In the center of each comic is typically one of these fun and often very weird stories.

In the House of Mystery annual a special story appeared in the middle of it.  The very first appearance of I, Zombie.  It was a preview of the then upcoming series.  The story features Gwen and her scoopie gang going trick or treating.
