Demon club the King of Pain offers the Corinthian a chance to indulge his most murderous tendencies, and the walking nightmare finds himself ravenous after years of guarded restraint. And though the first taste is free, what starts as a snack quickly escalates to a feast, and there will no doubt be hell to pay. Are the club's offerings enough to keep the Corinthian satisfied? Or will blood spill across the streets of San Francisco just as the immortal witch Thessaly enters the fray, seeking to satiate a hunger of her own?

    In a world filled with supernatural threats, it's hard to create a truly terrifying human villain, and that's where Tynion exceeds with Teague. This guy is so loathsome because he resembles so many real people, and the scene where he explains what he wants to do to Kells is genuinely disturbing. Read Full Review

    The Glass House #3 is another in a long line of superb horror comics. As someone who's loved this universe it's denizens, monsters, dreams, and nightmares for decades, picking up a new issue is always a highlight of my week. This series remains highly recommended. Read Full Review

    So at the end of The Sandman Universe Nightmare Country The Glass House 3 we have Thessaly joining the story. The Corinthian is leashed to Madison, but with this added wrinkle, how long will that last? Will Max be able to free his unholy holy sweetheart? What will we learn about The Smiling Man? What nightmares still await us until then? Read Full Review

    The addition of Thessaly at the end isn't a surprise, obviously, and I'm glad to see them back in action again. What makes me a bit wary is that they're getting a spinoff issue next and we'll get a skip month for this series so we can come back together and move forward with the storyline with that knowledge. I'm not sure why it isn't just getting slotted within this run itself if it's going to be integral to understanding what they've been up to. Either way, this installment here is pretty solid and I'm interested to see more of what's unfolding and how badly it's going to go because of the players involved. Any scene involving Kells just feels heartbreaking at this point and I imagine it's only going to get worse before it gets better. Read Full Review

    The Sandman Universe: Nightmare Country - The Glass House #3 takes its time to collect itself and put all of the pieces in place for whatever comes next. With the appearance of Thessaly, issue #4 will certainly be exciting. While this issue sets everything up, it doesnt feel like a filler issue to make sure the reader gets up to speed. Tynions character development of the Corinthian continues to be the highlight of the series. Tynions development still feels organic to the character and not just for the purposes of the series.

    Much of The Glass House #3 is devoted to carefully developing the motivations, relationships, and power dynamics that shape this multifaceted drama. Every being has their own purpose and nature, which fills the many conversations throughout the issue with a simmering tension. Read Full Review
