Brevoort revealed that he attended a meeting focusing on the legendary revisionist superhero series with Neil Gaiman, successor to the book’s prime mover Alan Moore:
On another note, attended a cool Marvelman meeting today where Neil Gaiman told us how his last 2 unfinished storylines will end. Been waitin something like 17 years to find that out!
Brevoort’s followers were soon popping the champagne, but the editor was quick to point out that he was notsaying Gaiman would necessarily return to finish the stories, and that future plans for the title have yet to be confirmed:
I’m not sure I want to know what kinds of “treats” kids can expect when visiting the House of Mystery … but anyway, the Vertigo blog Graphic Content has some preview pages up from this month’s House of Mystery Halloween Annual.
They include looks at the House of Mystery framing sequence, a new Merv Pumpkinhead tale by Bill Willingham and Mark Buckingham, and one page of Chris Roberson and Mike Allred’s “I, Zombie” tale. Now those are treats I can get behind.
