The Corinthian and Dream have a deal: the toothy-eyed nightmare can continue walking the waking world in search of answers about the Smiling Man, but he's bound to the will of Madison Flynn-who refuses to let him hurt or kill anyone she finds undeserving. But as the Corinthian finds himself drawn into the labyrinthian demon club the King of Pain, he's about to get a taste of just how tight his leash really is...

    Guest artist Patricio Delpeche is a perfect choice to illustrate this surreal, haunting landscape and the terrifying creature at its center, and this issue starts to establish just how deep the conspiracy that the Corinthian is hunting goes. Read Full Review

    Nightmare Country: The Glass House #2 is scary, deep, emotional, and an amazing work of horror fiction. I highly recommend this series and its companion titles, Nightmare Country Vol. One, and Dead Boy Detectives, to all fans of the genre. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge May 17, 2023

    The second installment expands on things without trying to rush it and that goes a long way toward keeping it engaging. We get some greater clarity of what's going on and are still invested in Max's story while also now getting a better handle on what the Corinthian is doing and why. It's a nice change from how we've seen him before, though it's been forever since I last saw him in anything, but it works well here and is bolstered by the live-action series that reminded me why I enjoyed the character the first time around decades ago. I'm even more curious as to how the story is going to unfold now with this second issue. Read Full Review

    The Glass House #2 carefully weaves the new story elements of Nightmare Country introduced last month, including a lovelorn fund manager falling for a corpse and a nightclub literally from Hell, into the prior Nightmare Country series and decades of earlier Sandman lore. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff May 10, 2023

    Theres a really good story somewhere in the center of what Tynions bringing to the page. Theoretically, when its finished, the full mini-series could easily be cut down into a deeply satisfying single issue about the central romance between the businessman and the dead girl. As it is, theres simply too much going on that isnt interesting. Read Full Review
