House of Mystery #175 - Neal Adams cover

Neal Adams

House of Mystery v1 #175, 1968 - With censorship codes loosening up, DC reverts this title back to its original horror genre. This second issue of the new format is also Neal Adams' first of a long succession of House of Mystery covers. He begins a consistent theme of depicting children in mysterious and often precarious situations. In this example, three kids dangerously peer down from a rooftop, flanked by stone gargoyles on either side. An open window sheds light, but reveals little else. Other artists in this issue include Jack Sparling and Goerge Roussos. This is number 1 of 26 House of Mystery issues with Adams art and/or covers.
