House of Secrets #139: "Instant Rebirth!"
Download House of Secrets #139
Halloween is rapidly approaching so I am dumping the superhero comic books for something a little more seasonal. After the holiday, I plan to turn my attention to Science Fiction, jungle wanderers, and other genres of speculative fiction.
This sister magazine to House of Mystery first reached the stands in the winter of 1956. While offering pretty much the same mixture as before, House of Secrets has the distinction of introducing the durable Swamp Thing.
This issue is the Halloween offering for 1976, the story written by George Kashdan and illustrated by Bill Draut. The magazine was hosted by Able, who also co-hosted Plop! along with his brother Cain from House of Mystery fame, all of which were published by DC Comics.
