Review: House of Penance #2


Sarah Winchester’s house is always under construction—the banging of hammers keeps her demons at bay. Her construction crew of vagrants and murderers build, tear down, and rebuild the mansion according to her visions. But her newest employee, Warren Peck, has brought some demons of his own . . .

A historical tale of horror from creator Peter Tomasi!

House of Penance is strange, addicting, and enthralling. This second issue continues the strange vein of creepy places, strange blood red worms, and odd flashbacks courtesy of Warren Peck. Even the sea of worms seems to grow as it comes and goes. Which makes me curious as to why it is growing, along the creepy forger person who makes a brief appearance.

I will admit the more the artist zooms up on Sarah Winchester’s eyes, it makes me wonder why. There is something creepy about that vacant blue eyed stare. The last few pages artwork is stunning and creepy.  I won’t spoil what happens in those pages, but be warned it is graphic.
