Very spooky. Very excited. :ghost:

Like ghosts, I ain’t afraid of this week’s book for the club! Definitely been one I’ve wanted to read since it showed up on here, just getting me to read it sooner. :slight_smile:

I’m in. I know I read some of this series from trades at the library, but it was spotty, so looking forward to diving in from the start.

Why not I have never read it so I’ll jump in. This will be my first time trying out these book clubs I keep seeing.

Wildwest book clubs are a great way to enjoy the books and hear what everyone else thinks about them

Hi :hugs:
Awesome! I can’t wait to hear your thoughts on this one.

As soon as the story of Hungry Sally started, I knew I had read this, though I think the library had gaps. At the risk of repeating myself each week, this is another great idea for a show. If DCU wants a twilight zone/dark mirror type anthology, House of Mystery with its on going storyline, plus imbedded short stories would be great.
As a kid I used to love these types of DC books with Cain and Abel and their creepy stories.

Hungry Sally got me too - I couldn’t look away, even when I wanted to! I’d be all in for a House of Mystery tv series.

I’ve never read this series before but I just finished book 3 on my lunch break. I’m enjoying it so far since I don’t have to know any continuity with the characters.

Hello!
That’s a great point. It’s refreshing to just jump in without having to know the background of the characters. Happy Reading :open_book:
