Comment: Classical horror story by Hodgson. One of the best artwork by Corben. There is the house as an entity, a characteristic theme for Richard Corben.
Alternatives, : In B&W! Only existing version in Brazil.
Corben: Ever since I started doing work for D. C./Vertigo I had hoped for a project such as this. But all of my own promotions were shot down. My good friend John Pocsik pitched William Hope Hodgson's "House on the Borderland" and they went for it. At the time, I had not read the book. Now judging from John's free adaptation, it was probably for the best. He did an exciting action horror story, probably much more exciting than any I might have done.
