After her encounter with Erzulie, the young girl known as Poquita finally has the strength to stand up to the adoptive family that's forced her into labor. But is that strength really coming from a benevolent goddess? Or is it the tiny fragment of the Corinthian that's taken up residence in her life whispering in her ears?

    This isn't one of the best issues of the series, as the two plots don't exactly mesh and can feel disjointed. But the supernatural visuals are top notch and Erzulie continues to be a compelling lead. It almost feels like an anthology, as these human characters move in and out of the orbit of the Gods of the bayou. Read Full Review

    Not a standout issue, but not one that will turn longtime readers off either. Read Full Review

    Once again, I really failed to care about anyone or anything is House of Whispers. This book is leading to something big involving the Corinthian and the other houses in the Dreaming, but getting there has been painfully slow and distracting. The new human character is interesting, but I am not sure how much I should invest as I suspect she will be written out in a few issues. Normally, Stanton's art keeps me going, but this month, even that wasn't enough. It is still stunning, but that does not always work. Read Full Review
