HOUSE OF SLAUGHTER #1

Review: The Nice House on The Lake #4

The Nice House on The Lake

Big feasts are often great opportunities for dark revelations to come forth and sour what every character hoped would be a chance for bonding and relaxation. Everyone’s disarmed in a feast, their guards down by the promise of a good time with friends and friends to be. The Nice House on The Lake leads up to a lot of this in its 4th issue and the results are, once again, terrifying.

This time the focus is on David, an upbeat jokester that tries to hide his fears and insecurities behind laughter. Not everyone is in the mood for his attempts at levity, but he’s interesting enough to be one of those characters that readers can easily root for.

Álvaro Martínez Bueno and James Tynion IV pour a lot character development into David and it pays off by the end of the issue as readers can feel they’ve gotten to know him quite well in the leadup. It’s great to have a character that steps a bit away from the doom and gloom to color the situation somewhat differently. It makes all the new bits of information we get in this issue hit harder, but also hit in unexpected ways given the how David’s point of view is laid out for readers.

Some of the discoveries made in this issue truly change up the narrative and take the comic into new directions. They’re getting increasingly bizarre and adding more questions to the mystery of the house on the lake. Whatever Martínez Bueno and Tynion are cooking, it’s getting several new ingredients thrown into the mix for added unpredictability.

The Nice House on The Lake #4 changes the ballgame for the characters involved and deepens the horror that binds them together. It makes a great argument for why some comics do justify a monthly schedule. The anticipation behind each new entry gets more intense each time and I can’t wait to see what’s in store for us come issue #5.

The Nice House on the Lake #3

Written by: James Tynion IV

Walter’s “rules” for their getaway strongly suggested the residents not leave the property lines of the House…but how far do they go? It’s not like Sam, the Reporter, to leave a question like that unanswered…but what he finds when he walks the perimeter of the lake might turn out to be the story of his lifetime-however much longer it lasts!

Review: The Nice House on the Lake #3

The Nice House on the Lake #3

James Tynion IV and Álvaro Martínez Bueno try to tame the urgencies of the end of the world in The Nice House on the Lake #3 to look at a specific character and how everything affects just one person in a group that’s stuck together. While the tension’s still running on high, this character-centric issue is one that nonetheless helps deepen the mystery behind the apocalypse and the role Walter, the person responsible for the house on the lake, plays as one of its agents.

Issue #3 centers on Sam, a queer character that reveals Walter was the first person he came out to and how he felt a kind of unstable duty to please this friend that only appeared at certain moments throughout his life. As the group tries to create some kind of routine or distraction to deal with the situation at the house, Sam decides it’s too early to settle and accept the new normal. Instead, he goes out to explore the limits of the land surrounding the house.

This part of the story finds great success in holding the idea of post-apocalyptic life over the group’s collective thought. While some might be more inclined to try and find comfort in distraction, others will find there’s no hope of acceptance when so many questions are yet to be answered. Tynion and Martínez Bueno latch on to this dynamic to great effect to set up what will eventually lead to rifts within the group.

The Nice House on the Lake #3

Martínez Bueno finally has the opportunity to let loose with the overall weirdness found on the land surrounding the house, especially with the strange geometry of the sculptures lying around. As Sam explores further, we get to see strange things hiding beyond the house and they do a great job of turning an already terrifying situation into a more disturbing one. I can’t wait to see what other hidden horrors await in the coming issues, and how Martínez Bueno will bring them to life.

Tynion’s focus on Sam shows that each character in Nice House has a continent’s worth of story in them. Not only should we expect more of these single-character studies in the future, but they might also become the some of the best parts of the whole series. It’s getting harder and harder to wait for the next installment of The Nice House on the Lake and it’s looking like it has no intention of letting up on that.
