A tale of horror from creator Peter Tomasi (Batman and Robin, Green Lantern), illustrated by the terrifyingly talented Ian Bertram (Bowery Boys, Batman: Eternal)!

The chaotic construction is no longer enough to keep Sarah's ghosts at bay, so she tries something more extreme to ease her conscience. Peck's nightmares are growing worse, too. Brought together by their dark visions, the heiress and the outlaw are getting closer, but Sarah's sister doesn't like it one bit.

    Again, I end up repeating myself, but when you've got a work that good, all you can do is sing its praises loudly and repeatedly. House of Penance is one of the best comics out there.

    Sarah's descent into madness manages to influence the art, as it gets darker, and a little gruesome at times. While it may not all be dark, there are a few bleak spots of light. They are spread out throughout the comic which manages to give the issue a sense of balance. Read Full Review

    With clarity comes a new darkness. Getting close to the (not quite but still kind of) true story behind the building. The return of Warren Peck's fantasies, his own demons as unique and omnipresent as Sarah's. The Sunset Blvd. ending is coming hard for Peck whether or not his romance with the Widow Winchester ever gets off the ground. But this time the pool is overflowing with blood, flooding the House, fixed to drown every lost soul in the book. Read Full Review
