Young Poquita has fled the abusive foster family that's held her hostage...but in an abandoned refugee prison on the southern border, she'll find that her traveling companion is not the kindly, grateful kitten she started the journey with. It's an aspect of the Corinthian made flesh...and Erzulie may not hear her cries in time to intervene!

    The reveal of Cat-thing's true identity shocks, but the plot veers in a lot of different directions. Maybe too many, but the visuals are stunning and every issue feels like going deeper down a rabbit hole. Read Full Review

    House of Whispers has been an uneven series, but this is one of its stronger issues. Read Full Review

    This issue looks to be getting ready to tie up a lot of threads from earlier issues and I look forward to seeing where it all goes. I’m enjoying the fact that things are rarely what they same and more often than not taken unexpected directions. Another strong addition in the world of The Sandman Universe. Read Full Review

    This book is all over the place. Every time I think there will be a thread worth following, it ends. There are new characters this month and I am not sure if I want to care about them. House of Whispers could actually do with a hard reboot. There is so much potential, but it remains untapped. I think maybe if this story was set up as a novel instead of a comic series, it might actually have more weight and there would be an opportunity to tell a better story. Read Full Review
