Erzulie shouldn't be in the Dreaming; in fact, she isn't really sure how she suddenly got stranded there. Worse, she soon learns that she is no longer connected to her worshippers, which, for a deity, means only one thing: death. Against the advice of Cain and Abel, Erzulie steers her houseboat back into the rip between the worlds in an effort to return to her realm. But how will she find her way back, and what danger lies ahead in the otherworldly waters she finds herself sailing?
Meanwhile, Latoya's sisters and her girlfriend watch her comatose body in the hospital, praying she'll wake up, not realizing they'd best be careful what they more

    Again, this is just beginning and I feel that even though this is only book two, it is really still chapter one. There is a lot to like and there is a lot to wish for. Even if you are confused by the story right now, buy this book just to look at the art. It is so, so good. Read Full Review

    Overall, House of Whispers #2, is a welcome addition to the Sandman mythos. It crafts a broken tale with just the right amount of humor to engage the reader and leave a lasting impression. Speaking of lasting impression, the art for this book is utter perfection. The art for this book is like a tattoo, it stays with you long after you finish reading. Read Full Review

    Back on Earth, the changing status of the House of Whispers has had some major detrimental affects on those who were worshippers of Erzulie, and even though these are not significant characters, its great to see the larger effects spreading. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Oct 10, 2018

    House of Whispers is a book about a new realm of mystery and dreams essentially crash-landing into the one we know. The main characters " Erzulie and Uncle Monday " found themselves pulled out of their realm at the end of the last issue, and this issue splits the narrative between several chaotic stories that come together into a fascinating whole.

    Despite some of these misgivings, I enjoyed this issue quite a lot. The magic and mystery oozes from this epic, seeping out between the spirits and archetypes and mythological figures. Like I said, Im stoked to be back. Read Full Review

    Stanton's art is amazing. Every panel is full of rich details and the art helps move the story along really well. The art does a great job of keeping the pace of the story moving. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Olivier Roth Oct 11, 2018

    Domo continues to shine in this second issue and you can see that their style is starting to take shape. Of note, I really enjoy the different paneling that is used throughout the issue. We get funkier, offbeat style paneling while in the Dreaming and more traditional in the real world scenes. Small, but awesome little touch. Read Full Review

    The Boat of Whispers sets sail, but comes back to its beginnings with a resounding crash. Is that an allegory or actual spoilers? You'd have to read the issue to know for sure. Read Full Review

    Like a slow boiling gumbo, House of Whispers is taking its time to get properly prepared. It remains to be seen, however, if readers will stay around long enough to see what it is cooking up. Read Full Review

    I'm still in for a while with this book because I can see the potential of the book and the world it wants to explore but the flow of the book still has this feeling like it's part of an oversized first issue. Read Full Review
