While Cain Was Out Killing His Brother

"While Cain Was Out Killing His Brother" from House of Mystery vol.2 #1 (Vertigo, 2008) by Matthew Sturges and Luca Rossi
I liked the new Vertigo version of House of Mystery. It seemed the perfect combination of modern continuing fantastical series and the anthology format of old, positing a a rich framing arc full of characters living (or trapped) in the House, one of which feels compelled to tell a creepy horror story in each issue, taking turns at being "host". A great idea that keeps readers hooked while still paying tribute to what the series used to be. Which reminds me, I still need to pick up the last couple of trades.
