Denny O’Neil writes one of the oddest, coolest team-ups ever: Batman meets “The House of Mystery.”
House of Mystery was a horror comic that predated the Comics Code, and later was rebooted as an award-winning series that served as the launching pad for folks like Bernie Wrightson and Len Wein. It’s host, Cain, was a weirdo who liked to creep people out. In Brave and the Bold #93, he and Batman team up for a wild ride.
Cain, as always, serves as a narrator, leading both the reader and Batman down a path…
In the end, it’s kind of a Scooby Doo type story, but it’s classic 1971 comic books: Kitsch, camp, great art….And Batman.
