    This may be the one issue that anybody can pick up and kind of get the idea of what's going on. This particular issue of House of whispers might do well as being an addon to some of the public-school libraries it is definitely a must read 4 some children to give context to the American Revolutionary War.

    Hopkinson and Watters' script has always been fascinating, but the ambition may be overwhelming it at times. It's a comic full of ideas, both from the mythology of the universe they're playing with and from the darkest parts of history. Overall it works, but at times we see a segment that REALLY works and the difference is noticeable when it goes back to other segments that don't have as much time to breathe. Read Full Review

    It's a story that needs more room to breathe, but there's something to be said for a single comic packing in this much thematic strength into a single issue. Read Full Review

    The problem with House of Whispers #20 is the same problem that has been going on for two years now. There is some stunning artwork, some amazing colors and visual storytelling, but it is always punctuated by wandering a bit aimlessly. Read Full Review

    It was almost interesting with the beginning, but then it goes back to check on Erzulie and the rest, where it becomes almost unbearable. This seems to be a pattern in this series.
