After the death of her father, Ruby Ando tries to reconnect with her estranged and isolated mother, whose hoarder house is a nightmare labyrinth of secrets and dangers. All the love Ruby was never shown she sees her mother lavish on her treasures and trinkets, the possessions that possess her. But when Ruby desperately tries to free her mother, the house wages war, ensnar-ing both women within its maze. Brought to hideous and twisted life by a mother's love, the "Horde" is determined to purge Ruby from the collection-or see her join it forever.

Brought to life by Marguerite Bennett (ANIMOSITY, DC's Bombshells, Batwoman) and Leila Lei more

    Things escalate and get complicated quickly as Ruby is trapped in the quagmire of Mia's horde/hoard. Again, the homophone is played brilliantly here by Bennett and Leiz both. The end result is that readers have to rethink their relationships to things. Why do we keep what we keep? And what exactly is a keepsake when our memories are so imperfect that what we keep loses its original meaning. But that is just the top layer of HORDE. Ultimately, our relationships to things shape our relationship to our own memories, which in turn influences and sometimes determines our relationship to people. You will not be able to read HORDE without thinking about your relationship to all of the above. Read Full Review

    A difficult family relationship is swamped in horror in this new graphic novel. An easy, enjoyable read with plenty of scares, just don't dig too deep into the narrative. Read Full Review
