Issue Review
   March 15, 2016
Dream issues are a pet hate of mine, and this dreary haunted house tale is no exception. It starts out okay, with some interesting scenes between SW and the Hangman. After that, our heroine is all alone and she faces a succession of 'mirages'. Something that rapidly grows tiresome. Of course, she overcomes her fears and, in the cliffhanger, faces the real villain. 4/10

  -This felt like a horror comic. Dang it! WbN is in the next issue. Here we go...

  Hangman is such an insanely cool villain.

  This all came out of nowhere. I agree, this is turning into a horror comic... Chalk this up to another character Marvel doesn't know how to fully utilize just yet.

  Marv Wolfman just can't help himself. Gotta drag horror into it. This run has been so good....now I dread the next issue.

  This made zero sense to me. How does it go from Brothers Grimm, to Hangman, to...Morgan Le Fay?! What?! I have very little confidence they will explain all this to my satisfaction.

  Some of Infantino's best art. He has produced some great art for Marvel. The freedom of the Marvel style suits him.

I liked the horror angle in the story, until the next issue blurb. I'm enjoying the ride so far, but I don't see 4 solid issues happening.
